Make Your System Foolproof
A big part of taking photos is making sure you can find the photos after you take them! If you stay organized and follow a set Workflow, finding files on your computer will be much easier. Sometimes you may need to find a photo taken months, even years ago, so it’s important to know where you have it stored.
Selects ? Master ? Output
Once you have your images imported, go through them and flag your favorites. By putting all of your picks together in the same “Selects” folder, you can pick and choose from your best photos to decide which ones to edit. PSD files and images currently being worked on go in your “Master” folder, while finished photos saved for Web are stored in “Output”. This is the same system we use here at Phlearn, and it guarantees images will not be misplaced.
