The networked image is a slice of network production that is emblematic of the current image economy. As a hub within a techno-social infrastructure it manages the network as a directive tool. This is a result of its existence within a production protocol that is programmed by technologies such as web applications, digital cameras and smartphone apps. Since networked images are part of a specific software, they are marked by software proper- ties, which enables them to be transformed into scripts or protocol.

Image management discusses a move from images as representation, to the application of images as productive networked objects. It is about the role of the image as mediator between technological and social protocols.
