As a digital camera owner you may not be surprised to learn that digital import software to automate image transfer from your camera or card-reader is important. Everyone needs to get their images from point A the camera to point B the computer and we need this task performed with the minimum of fuss and bother. As photographers we are all aware that there are occasions when we will need photographs rotated or some images may require a little resolution adjustment. Using professional digital camera downloader software like RoboImport to automate photo transfer and to perform some necessary image adjustments easily manages mundane digital camera workflow tasks.
When purchasing your new digital camera it may come with software that claims to be the “gift with your purchase”, some quaint little digital photo organizer. Usually this digital camera import software is offered on a trial basis or it is the bare minimum quality, if it’s any good at all. With the lower cost of digital cameras today many don’t even come with any digital camera downloader software at all, in fact if you’re lucky your camera package might come with a driver for your PC for digital camera communication but nothing else at all. Some new photographers may believe that since their new camera did not come with any special digital camera workflow software, it’s not required. Unaware that the uploading photographs from their camera does not require time consuming steps. They will begin by creating folders, then picking pictures out one by one and face the next process of organizing and arranging. This is simply unthinkable for professional photographers or even new photography enthusiasts who have hundreds of photo to process and organize.
Digital camera workflow software specifically developed to transfer your photographs from your camera to your PC does far more than automate the picture transfer process. Any program that would just perform just this task is really quite inadequate. Photographers require professional digital camera workflow software such as RoboImport. This recommended digital camera workflow software will detect the camera connection for us photographers that may not be seasoned computer experts. RoboImport will create the required folders to transfer the images into, and even rename it accordingly. Some less professional digital camera import software may present a problem during the upload process by duplicating filenames and sadly overwriting other treasured photographs that may be present in the computer. RoboImport takes the precaution of renaming photographs from the standard number your digital camera presets, by reading and recording the EXIF information of the photographs to create a unique code representing the date and time the image was photographed. The complete EXIF information including your cameras make, model and settings will also be transferred with your images, retaining this information is absolutely necessary for professional photographers.
RoboImport will also rotate images when required, correct image resolution and add any further IPTC information to the photographs you would like to include. When managing hundreds of images this is an exceptional time saving feature. Wildlife and travel photographers are also considered with the added ability of RoboImport to include GPS coordinates of the photographs location.
Professional photographers who do not have access to their RAW images do not do their work any justice. JPEG images are not as good in quality and are prone to bleeding and blurring the photographer was not responsible for, and certainly their camera did not create, this is a result of the compression required to convert photographs JPEG images or other formats. RoboImport saves both the RAW image file and the JPEG image in separate folders giving the photographer the photo they really took, as security and backup against format conversion damage.
Excellent digital camera workflow software like RoboImport will also open your Picajet photo organizer, or other available digital image organizer you might have on hand for further assessment of your photographs. The time and fuss saved by using software to automate image transfer gives the photographer back their time to spend on the tasks they want to be performing, like taking masterpiece photos.
