Why take photos if you can’t find them later? Digital photography expert Jeff Carlson has developed a simple system you can use to make your photos browsable, searchable, and generally navigable!
Jeff leads off by helping you understand the strengths and weaknesses of the three most popular photo-management applications: Photos from Apple, and Lightroom and Photoshop Elements from Adobe. Once you’ve picked the app that’s right for you (and there’s a chapter on migrating to Lightroom from iPhoto, Aperture, or Photos), you’ll learn to create a custom workflow for importing, evaluating, keywording, and tagging your photos so they are quickly sorted. For each of these essential aspects of your workflow, Jeff provides step-by-step instructions for each of the three covered apps.
It’s all too easy to lose everything if you don’t have backups, so Jeff discusses how to back up and archive photos to protect your irreplaceable photographic memories.
Jeff also helps you pick an online service that can put your photos everywhere, looking particularly at the pros and cons, and how-tos, of iCloud Photo Library, Google Photos, Lightroom mobile, and Mylio.
