PhotoMetadata.org Joins DAM Federation

by Ralph Windsor on September 24, 2018

PhotoMetadata.org  joins Planet DAM, DAM Directory, DAM Guru and the various DAM News community-related sites that we operate.  DAM Federation is open to any DAM-related resource which is non-profit in-nature (although it can be provided by profit-making entity).  The resources should be primarily non-commercial and not exist as promotional/advertising vehicles.
