Actually, Don, I do like DUM for the RAW image since that's what it is!

Great idea!

One ingests the DUM images and enters them into the DAM system and then it's just a matter of dimping them with a DIMP to store the final images in the DAM system and your done! Or, as the British say, "Bob's your uncle!"

No Nikolai,

Don't think like that. Dum is spelled D U M, just like RUM is R U M

There is no B. Where did you find that aweful B?

No, Don got it right the first time. You see, we say DUM, but mean dumb file. This is a sort of finger to the so-called purists who would believe that what comes out of the camera is somehow real and what one does from then on is artificial.

So I like DUM, it is what it is and represents images right out of the camera, a sort of mish-mash of virtual celluloid garnished from the last 100 years.

It is not yet anything and could be something. It is now speechless. Tomorrow it will speak to us.

Don is a genius!!

I wish I had thought of it first!

Asher

This is starting to sound like verb conjugation. Perhaps we ought to merge with the grammar thread.

I dim, you dam, he/she/it dum.

Sorry for I am going to be little serious :-).

I would like to thank to all who contributed in this very important and valuable thread. You have helped me very much. Just few minutes ago I got mail from Arcsoft selling their new product labeled PhotoStudio Darkroom - Non-destructive image processing for RAW, JPG and TIFF. Iwould never understand it ...

Petr Kohout

P.S. Or - did Arcsoft people read the thread?

He also tried to start a debate and wrote of "metadata-based-editing" and of programs as being SISI, short for saved-instruction-set imaging.

But what's the noun? Calling them sissies isn't macho enough and while I tend to think of them as "stored instruction set editors", I always feel happier with 3 letter acronyms too. So one I just came up with was Metadata Driven Editors - MDE's - and I rather like it despite dropping the "Imaging".

Any views on these? Any more to throw into the mix?

John
We have had some interesting suggestions and then some humor. However, this is an important issue.

Thanks, Peter, for Bringing us back to John Beardsworths original question!

Where the noun?

Asher
