How do organize your files?
Jul 10, 2012

I have 25,000+ photos on my iMac and up until a couple of years ago I was not that serious about photography. Almost all of my files are in iPhoto, except for when I started shooting RAW and decided not to import to iPhoto because I bought Lightroom. My question is, how do you organize your folders, in what program? I feel like I have photos everywhere and need some organization but not sure how to do it the most efficient way. I like to use Canon DPP for some simple edits and then LR for more in depth stuff, but can't export to LR from DPP directly (or at least I don't know how). Should I be storing all files on an external drive and then opening them with LR when I need to work on them? Keep all files in the Pictures folder? Please help me with some ideas.
