Photos needs to be rearranged to a new format/structure so I can easily find them and it wouldn’t clog up my system when the Lightroom catalog gets bigger. 30000 photos! So it would be in this format:
> Year (eg: 2009)
>> Month (eg: 01 January)
>>> Date-Event Name (eg: 090101 NYE)
>>> LR monthly catalog (eg: 01 January.lrcat)
Problem is, photos are distributed in 3 portable hdds and aren’t formatted in the yymmdd-eventname format. So I’m getting to that but it seems that I might have messed up the dates because windows couldn’t recognise the 30D’s RAW files. Ugh.
Current LR catalog also needs to be dissected into different months. I used to separate the catalogs to work and personal. I think it’s better for me to combine them together, and group by month. Plus, work is play.
Next to move them to the NAS. Not really a problem, but time consuming.
Then duplicate to desktop for editing. I’ll be using the desktop exclusively for editing because it’s faster. Hopefully I’m able to upgrade it by this month when the new monitor comes in. Phenom X4!
Install backup software. Install backup software. Install backup software. Install backup software. Install backup software.
Back up to NAS.
The XPS would most likely be exclusively be used for web projects, simply because I like using that keyboard for typing. Occasionally I’ll use the laptop for photowork if I’m location. Have to figure out a workflow for that. Sigh.
Got this all wrong. Don’t pass go, don’t collect $200. Time to buy properties and set a foothold into it.
Money sucked completely. This month’s spending is off the roof. New lens, new monitor, and possibly upgrades for the desktop. Anyone interested in buying the lenses?
Rejected a job so I could meet up with friends tomorrow. Not that the job doesn’t pay good, but I miss my friends. That pays better.
I’d like to go on a holiday BADLY. Anywhere would do. Even if it’s just Genting. Don’t need too many people. One on one would do.
