Managing a photo library

Well hello there, I’ve been managing a photo library for some time and today was reading a discussion online about how people manage their collections. I thought I would share how I manage mine.

The solution I found for my photo workflow is that I’ve installed AeroFS on my computers and I store my latest photos from the last several months in that folder. It syncs across all of my computers, that way my wife and I can use Picasa or Lightroom and the photos load fast since they are on our local drives.

Since we store folders in a /year/month/ file structure we can easily move those to an external hard drive.

The whole thing backs up to CrashPlan. My entire collection is over 1.5 TB of photos.
