I understand that, but that also means that you then have to switch forth and back (DAM/PL). Also these two main task are overlapping. You have to browse, filter etc. through you data set (DAM) to identify the images to work on (PL).
Using either one or the other tool is interrupting the workflow. And of course you don’t have to make sure that your DAM let integrate you your processing application seamlessly.
Of course other people have different approaches to work on images and my workflow does not apply to everyone.
And we’re here to discuss things to learn and - maybe - improve stuff! So every comment is highly appreciated.
PS: I’m also try find a good DAM solution for OSX/Windows which is not too expensive and works flawlessly with external image processing apps. So suggestions here are also appreciated!
