2 Minute Tricks # 11 - Workflow

This week we will look at setting up a good digital photo workflow. We will look at how to download and file your images from your camera, rename your images consistently, and quickly add generic metadata to your image using metadata templates.

See an example of the batch rename dialog box for Photoshop 7 and CS here and CS 2 here.

The show's step by step guide is available here and here.

Love the podcast!
A good program to organize your photos: Picasa.

One small suggestion to this tip. Since CS2 now has the ability in the batch rename section to "Copy to other folder", I find it more efficient to point that to my CF card, choose the destination on my HD, and apply my renaming preferences. Saves a step of seperately copying images via the OS first.

Love the podcast Mike! One of my favorites that I look forward to each and every week. Thanks. It's great.

Hey guys,
Glad you are all diggin the podcast. Comments like these really make doing the show worthwhile.

I like the idea of copying from the CF card with the bridge app, it sounds like a great way of downloading. Thanks for the tip on that one Gary, I hadn't even thought of that. Maybe we can add that into the wiki.

Wow! Thank you so much. I have been messing around with Photoshop for close to 6 years and I use it alot of do brief edits to my digital photos and all these years I have manually been naming photos organizing them. This is going to save so much time!
I usually don't have alot of time to just sit down and play with PS and this gives just a few minutes for me to learn something. Can't wait for your upcoming episodes. Keep up the Great work.
