Note: This tutorial was recently updated to include OS-X Lion and Lightroom 4.
Recently I had dinner with an entrepreneur who had an exciting new idea for a software service start-up. He talked about how hard it was for photographers to manage their images. I was not surprised, thinking about my own quest for file organization and image management, his idea seemed important. His product is specifically for Lightroom users and it’s very clever. It’s also ground breaking and could save many hours and much heartache if a hard drive crashes. No. it’s not file back up but it does do that. It’s designed to make Lightroom much more useful and make file management a snap. It’s not quite released yet, I will let you know when it is and I will share with you how to get it. But that’s just what made me think about writing this blog post after I came home from dinner last night.
