For the digital work environment, software is highly important. The large volumes of digital pictures and videos should be stored, processed, and managed. Software is the binding link and is required to keep the large amount of data organized. The professional photographer has is already more accustomed to working with applied software. He uses editing programs like Photoshop, Aperture, Capture, etc to edit his RAW pictures, and he make use of archiving software in order to manage his videos and pictures. The amateur photographer does not seem to be ready for this. In-camera software is gradually becoming more popular, and storing data on a hard drive is the equivalent of an archive. Here's a great task for software manufacturers, to guide the novice photographer by means of user-friendly software, so that all those beautiful pictures and videos will still be accessible in the future. The PMA 2011 show provides an overview of various software solutions.
