P[hotographic w]ork flow
Flickr. Been using it for years – with periodic hiatus[es] – always worried about losing pictures to sneaky internet thievery – and at the same time wondering how to keep a proper archive of my photos.
Restricted access to Flickr
Well – I can use Flickr without worrying about the first point. Just found out that I can select who from my contacts or the whole universe has access to the see all sizes/download this picture option.
I’d looked for this feature before – last time must have been at least year ago – without finding it. I guess it may be a “new” feature – or just a very well hidden one – as there were so many photographers’ photostreams that I had download rights too.
Time to backup
So now – slowly does it I can backup my entire photographic history to Flickr and get decent off-site cloud based backups. Delicious.
All that’s missing now is to find a plug-in for Bridge/Lightroom/Aperture that will sync changes in my master archive with the Flickr one…
I’m so excited and I just can’t hide it
And I know, I know, I know, I know, I know I want you
Anyway the D3 is announced – my desire to get into full frame digital may well be lest costly than moving over to Canon. Assuming that there will be a lower cost FX model coming out in the not too distant future.
Currently a mix of Bridge, Graphic Converter, Photoshop, iPhoto and Flickr. Photo workflow aint good.
Throw in a bit of terminal action
jhead -mkexif when stuck with [enjoying] 35mm film. Oh – add Flickr Uploadr and Google Earth for the geotagging. Bit of a mess.
Too many apps. Too much system overhead. Not a lean-mean-workflow machine.
In fact a real hog.
Graphic Converter has jumped to the fore of my photo workflow options. Love the new browser features. Particularly the full screen preview on my PowerBook monitor when I’m at my desk and the fab “Set GPS from Current Google Earth postion”.
Love Flickr and the new Flickr Findr/maps doo-dah.
Match made in heaven.
Only glitch was that Flickr didn’t seem to like the GPS metadata added to the originals by Graphic Converter. Latitute and logitude data was there in the “more properties”. But nothing happening on the mapiness. No idea where I found the answer – but there is a hidden page in the account settings that needs activation…
If you have a Flickr account go here.
All working lovely. I have found mapiness.
