Upcoming lynda.com Title on Organizing and Archiving Images

We're putting the finishing touches today on my latest lynda.com title, "Organizing and Archiving Digital Photos" (you can see my entire library here). We've been working on this title for over a year, and I think there will be concepts in these movies that will help every shooter in our community.

Unlike other titles that focus on a specific application, I start with basic organizational concepts, then show you how they can be applied to scenarios where you use Lightroom, Aperture, or just stick with the file management system in your operating system. We're both platform and application agnostic in this series. There are workflows for beginners, intermediate, and advanced alike. You choose which approach works best for you.

In general, I recorded the Aperture hands-on pieces on a Mac, and the Lightroom movies on Windows 7. Plus I cover RAID1 hard drives, LAN computing, and personal cloud storage. And... there are a few surprises.

I anticipate that the title will be released this September. If you want to be notified when it's live, just send me an email, and I will keep you posted, plus provide you links to key movies.

I'm passionate about this title because preserving your work, and being able to easily access it, is important for all of us.

Great title choice Derrick! Looking forward to seeing the final product.


Dear Derrick,

The art and science of photography deperatly needs digital photos, particulary Olmypus RAW files of a young, blond Icelandic woman to keep the art advancing as it must. One has reason to believe that a well-known gentlemen such as yourself might be able to provide such pictures.

Naturally such views will NEVER find their way into a comercial venture of any sort. Ever.
In fact in order for the photos to function correctly, they will never be seen beyond the aging scientist wwho will work with them and he himself is largely blind and deaf.

Mankind will be in your gratitude if you can provide a binary source of such views and rumor has it that you can provide access. If so please demonstrate a manifistation of noblisse obblige and email these views to the email above where even now excitement builds to a fevered pitch.

With an almost fatal gratitude the desparite at the site avove are just able to perserveire until action begins to generate a final, last potentiality.

Thank you for your very existance Sir. Some I krow a reply will burst upon the scene of so many past crushing blows and provide an occurance that justifies so much sorrow up until now.
