This morning Scott Kelby presented his latest free webinar on backing up your photos. I tuned in a bit late, but the webinar is still available at the following link.
In fact, you can also view previous webinars here as well.
The webinar is focused on those who use Adobe’s Lightroom Classic. For those of you are are Lightroom users, who are familar with Scott Kelby, you may already be familar with his SLIM – Simplified Lightroom Image Management system.
There is a complete updated course on Slim on KelbyOne.com
But even if you do not you will probably get multiple tips by watching the webinar.
Some of the key points discussed in the webinar include:
Put all of your photos on one external hard drive.
Backup up your photos to a second external hard drive.
Also, back up your photos to cloud Storage.
Put all of your photos on your external drive into a single super folder. Your existing folders are then sub-folders of this super folder.
In Lightroom Classic, use only one Catalog.
The webinar goes on to discuss additional Lightroom topics. Even if you do not use Lightroom, the above practices are worth doing.
Until next time…
