In this course, photographer Derrick Story teaches the concepts and techniques behind efficient photo management and backup, which becomes increasingly important as a photo collection grows. The course begins by showing how to transfer and organize photos "by hand"—that is, by copying them from a memory card to a hard drive without using software. In the second portion of the course, discover how to take advantage of the photo-management features provided by programs such as Lightroom and Aperture, by assigning descriptive keywords, by giving photos ratings and color-coded labels, and how smart album features can automatically collect photos that meet certain criteria.
The course concludes with a look at aspects of a good backup and archival strategy, ranging from the best file format for long-term backup to the best hardware options for offline storage.
I have a camera here with two memory card slots. I have a little guy right here, and I am going to put a second one in. Now, we tend to see this more on expensive DSLRs, at least for the time being. This might be something that migrates down as time goes on. What I can do is, when I take pictures I can write it to the one memory card slot, and then I can take my favorites, and I can put it on the second memory card slot. It's really like having an external hard drive for your computer, but it's built right into your camera.
