Creating a new namespace

To create new metadata fields for use in your DAM system, you must first create a new namespace to contain them.

Creating a namespace

  1. Open the Fotoware Metadata Configuration from the Fotoware program group in the Start menu.
  2. Right-click on the Namespaces node and choose Add namespace.

Adding a new namespace to the Metadata Configuration

  1. In the Name field, enter a descriptive name.
  2. In the Alias field, enter an alias for the namespace. Use lowercase letters only and no spaces.

Tip: If you're uncertain about the alias, look at the other namespaces to see what their aliases look like.

  1. In the URL field, enter a unique URL. Using your business domain as part of the URL is a good idea. For example, it can look something like this: (Don't use this URL precisely).
  2. Select OK to save the namespace.

What's next?

Next, you can start adding fields to the new namespace.
