        We evaluate the pion and isobar propagators in cold nuclear matter self consistently
applying a covariant form of the isobar-hole model. Migdal's vertex correction
effects are considered systematically in the absence of phenomenological soft form
factors. It is shown that the short-range dressing of the pi N Delta vertex has a
significant effect on the pion and isobar properties. We study photoproduction off
nuclei in order to obtain constrains on the parameters of the model.
Using such realistic parameters sets we predict a downward shift of about 50 MeV for the
Delta resonance at nuclear saturation density.

    In addition we will present recent calculations for rho-meson photoproduction.
