Keep your photographs safe by establishing a solid backup workflow and cultivating good storage and backup habits.
- Hi there, I'm Tim Grey. As a photographer, naturally I feel that all of the photographic images I capture are very important to me. And that means that I want to make sure my photos are safe. That, in turn, means that I need to make sure that I have a good backup workflow so that I have redundancy. Redundancy for my photos that I can feel confident about, so that if I experience any problems whatsoever, I have the confidence of knowing that there's another copy of my photos safely stored somewhere. In this course, we're going to take a look at the overall concepts related to a backup workflow.
I'll talk about the issues that you'll want to think about when you're planning your workflow. And also, some of things you'll want to keep in mind when you're actually working through that workflow, when you're actually backing up your photos. Along the way, I'll give you some insights as to the things you might want to consider for your own backup workflow, so that you too can feel confident that your photos are always safe.
