#12. "RE: Fork in the Road"
In response to In response to 0


New York, US
          

This is a very interesting and enlightening discussion! I'll stay out of the catalog debate — my meager library is around 8200 images, and many shoots were specific, standalone events so the manual folder system still works well. General landscape, cityscape, and wildlife images w=are (I think) reasonably well key worded, so I can generally find what I want.

Four four years I used a PM/CNX2 workflow, augmented with Nik filters and with Photoshop lurking int he background. Last year I decided (with help from an Image Doctor!) that Lightroom had caught and surpassed CNX2, so I made the jump.

And I'm quite happy that I did. Lightroom is almost all of what I need; I'm still using Nik (more than ever); I use Photoshop less. (Full disclosure: my day job is graphics and print production and I use most of Adobe's apps. Adding LR was the easy choice. Also, Adobe will be the last company standing…)

But here's the irony. I can't kick the PM habit. I still use it for initial screening (kill the baddies), key wording, and for some clients immediate export of JPGs. PM is just so easy but so powerful, and so fast. I just love it, and maybe down the road I'll try their (future) catalog.

My issue is backup. At work, i'm used to a fast wired hookup to the (RAID) server. At home, I'm entirely wireless and, not happy ingesting and developing a few hundred images after a shoot, I work locally and manually copy to multiple backup drives. I'm also still searching for backup drives/software/etc. that will reliably work on a wireless Mac system.
