Build a digital workflow to import, tag, rate, and organize your photos!

Why bother taking photos if you can’t find them later? If you want to be able to lay your hands on any given photo in your ever-expanding library, digital photography expert Jeff Carlson has developed a simple system you can use to make your photo collection browsable, searchable, and generally navigable!

Jeff leads off by helping you understand the strengths and weaknesses of the four most popular photo-management applications: iPhoto and Aperture 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 photos), you’ll learn how to create a custom workflow for importing, evaluating, keywording, and tagging your photos so they are quickly sorted into logical groups. For each of these essential aspects of your workflow, Jeff provides step-by-step instructions for each of the four covered applications. And since it’s all too easy to lose everything if you don’t have backups, Jeff discusses the best way to back up and archive your photos to protect your irreplaceable photographic memories.

In the process of creating your custom digital photo workflow, you’ll find expert advice about each of these photo-management topics:

Bonus! Includes a 20% off coupon for SizzlPix!, high-def photographic prints infused onto an aluminum base. These hand-crafted prints are largely free of glare, are waterproof (some are installed in showers and pools), and have an ultra-hard coating that renders them virtually scratch-proof.
