Digital File Management for Photographers

Basic Concepts and Best Practices for File Management

Free PresentationI can find any image I have taken in the last 20 years — in less than 3 minutes! Can you?

We all love creating images, yet photographers routinely struggle with storing digital files in an organized system that allows them to retrieve photos quickly.

In this interactive live web presentation, we will begin with the basics of taxonomies and how to determine what kind of filing system will work best for YOU.

Armed with a better understanding of your organizational options, I will help you lay the foundation for an organized and efficient file management system. We will also look at the various storage and backup options that are available.

What you will learn:

  • Taxonomies — What they are and which you should use.
  • How to create a filing system that scales with your work.
  • How to organize your post processing workflow.
  • File naming options for faster file recovery.
  • Storage and backup options.
  • … and much more!

Who should attend this LIVE presentation?

Do you leave your images on your memory cards for fear of losing them? Is your desktop your filing system? Do you rely on Lightroom’s slow and clunky catalog system?? Well you are not alone, and this presentation will help you understand WHY and HOW you can take steps to streamline and improve your filing workflow so that you can find any image effortlessly.

How can I help you?

There will be a live Q&A session after the presentation.

Come prepared with questions.

This is a FREE 90-Minute LIVE Interactive Photography Presentation by Joe Edelman.
