"Where are my doggles? We have a pancake breakfast to go to!"
First off, Happy Mother's Day! All of you dog moms out there deserve a hand for taking such good care of your 4-legged kids and making sure that their lives are full of love and adventure! We celebrated by going over to the Red Oak Victory ship docked here in Richmond for a pancake breakfast and a tour around the ship. It's the last remaining ship out of 747 ships that were built in Richmond and served during three wars. I took a few shots and posted them to my Instagram page so jump over and read more about how the ship got its name!
Here we are at week 37 of our entries in the Black and White Sunday blog hop! Thank you to our hosts You Did What With Your Wiener, My Life In Blog Years, and Dachshund Nola. Please see one of their lovely blogs for information on how to join!
So, I'm really curious to know how people organize and file all of their photos for their blogs and for their families, and how they deal with backups. I have a separate folder that I keep on a portable hard drive for my blog (in case of emergency I can grab it and go), but I feel like I need a backup of those also that I keep elsewhere just in case of an emergency. I have a friend who's house was robbed and they took everything, including his backups, and since he is a graphic designer he lost all of his work! Yikes! So I'm more than paranoid now.
As for files I have a folder for each post, dated year-month-date and a description of the photos. Within that folder I have three separate subfolders titled "Original" for the originals right off the sd card which I open in Bridge and delete the ones I don't want, a "Watermark" folder which is really where I make a copy of the original to work on in Photoshop, and a "Saved For Web" folder for the final photograph that goes up on the blog or to print. So I'm curious what works best for you? What new technology/programs have you found useful?
