At some point when you're working in the folder-based approach to organize…your photos, there are going to be images that you want to image edit.…So how do you manage those?…Because when you're working with a, what we call, regular image editor, like…Photoshop, that is a destructive image editor.…It's not the advanced nondestructive type image editing that we see in…Lightroom or Aperture.…So you have to do some work with the file names and so forth, and that's what I'm…going to do right now.…
So I started with an image that's here in our archive, and in fact, if you go up…here you can see that there is my hard drive, and there as my virtual filing…cabinet; Derrick Pictures 2010. And there is a folder in there: Morgan…Portraits, which is where we are right now, and I picked an image out of there,…and we're going to edit it in Photoshop.…And actually what I want to do is convert it to black and white in Photoshop.…So I've done that; I've created a black and White layer right here in Photoshop.…
