Work Flow

THIS PAGE UNDER CONSTRUCTION

Ok, you just shot 600 digital pictures in an afternoon at the local wetlands. And now you want to sort out the keepers, perhaps improve upon them with photo editing, save them, and share some of them with your friends and loved ones. To do this you need a process or work flow.

If you already have a work flow that works for you, great. If not, here are some ideas.

1. Set up a folder on your hard drive with a name that includes the date in a sortable format and a brief description e.g. 2007-07-01-Wakodahatchee.

2. Copy the files from your camera media card to the folder you created on your hard drive. The easiest and most reliable way to do this is to use a memory card reader. Google "memory card reader".

3. Rename all of the files in the folder to start with the date e.g. rename DSC_9260.JPG to 063007_9260.JPG. There are numerous file rename utilities that can convert a folder full of files with little fuss. Google " file rename utility".

4. Optionally, burn a CD or DVD copy of the folder and files you just created on your hard drive. This way you will have a master of all of the pictures you took. On the other hand, if you don't think you need a master copy, skip this step. As for me, I don't consider my work important enough to worry about the need for a master copy. But if I was shooting for money I might.
