Digital Workflow

Description

A properly structured workflow is essential for knowing where your images are, how you work on them and to protect Jpgs from degrading by saving them too often.

(If you didn't know frequently saving Jpgs makes them fall apart - check out the File Formats film).

There's a lot of digital workflow software available from Adobe Bridge to downloader programs that come packed with your cameras. I only use my computer's own file browser and a file re numbering program.

Why? I find it easier to manage my workflow files myself. Maybe I'm a control freak! Because my files are spread across many external hard drives I find that by naming the drives and making backup copies of them myself the structure is maintained better. When I've used software file management systems there have been bugs in the works which sometimes means the computer can't find what I'm looking for. So I have to spend time figuring out what's gone wrong - and I don't like that.

Once you have your digital workflow in place and a structure to work to you never need to do it again. You'll be able to find you images easily - and ensure you don't accidentally save over and lose any!

I spend a lot of time in the outdoors and this course has taught me to think like a photographer, which of course helps my photography greatly, but also taught me how to "see" and this point is useful in my outdoor activities such as hiking and backpacking, appreciating the outdoors more than ever.
