    Very nice Ben. I particularly like Looking Back for its golden colours.

    Last one, basically the same as the first one I posted but from the other side - think this one's my fav of the lot.

    Clarity

    Great stuff as usual henro.

    It always makes me laugh when you say one of your pictures is worse than the others. I can never tell what is remotely better/worse!

    Ha! Thanks Tomo.

    When I look at my shots I just see a long list of 'if only...' If only I'd raised the camera/taken a step to the left/judged the wave better etc. etc. ;-)

    Oh man...

    I'm trying to make a photo book from the photos from our trip to China and there are about 20 gigabytes of jpgs to sort out.

    What a nightmare. To make matters worse there isn't enough space on our iMac to put all the images on it and to sort that out I need to go through all the other millions of photos.

    I've resorted to upload them straight from the memory card to Google+. Then I let google select highlights from each day (between 200 - 300 photos each day) and then do a quick triage (do I need another cute close up picture of the kids where I can't even make out where they are?)

    Hells bells.

    If you can read this you really need to fiddle with your forum settings.

    Just thought I'd blow the cobwebs off this thread to mention my second charity photo book which is now on sale. All shot with Fuji X cameras.

    What are you all using for maintaining your photo libraries? I'm talking specifically about organising, naming, tagging, duplicates etc..

    I've just got a mass of folders (on a NAS) from numerous devices, dropbox, icloud, dslr, two kids, wife etc.. I need to optimise this setup.

    Ta.

    Give yourself 5 or gig, you're worth it.

    I use good old fashioned Folders in Windows.

    But, it's a friggin pain in the arse and I would really love some solution. I basically need an enormous 8 TB NAS drive or something where I can dump the pictures and not thinking about them again. Instead, I have my photos spread across two computers and backed up on 3 different external hard drives. And inevitably there are duplicates of entire folders of photos, and it can be difficult finding old photos when I need to.

    It's something I haven't really figured out how to optimise either :/

    Yup, sounds familiar. Tagging is important to me as well, I wanna search 'me zipline' and have the photo instantly.

    @mrpon Lightroom. It's also all I need for editing.

    Lightroom for me too. Didn't get it for cataloguing my photos, but it certainly meets all my needs in that regard.

    I don't really do much cataloging. When my photos are imported from the card they are put in a folder that starts with the date and features some information. I tend to add the first initial of my family too if they are featured. So P, K, W for my kids, J for my wife. And each of those folders is in a year folder.

    So my folder structure is like this:

    /photography/2014/2014_05_15 First Day at Legoland PKJW

    As I don't work commercially for any clients that's enough for me. I don't use any of the tagging or cataloguing in Lightroom or Capture One.

    All my photos, running to several hundred GB of RAW files sits on a 1TB drive in my PC. They are automatically backed up daily to a 2TB USB3 external drive. I back them up to a NAS too every week or so.

    And I have a core of images, favourites of the kids growing up, my mum, my late wife, wedding photos etc. all backed up to more than one cloud service. My favourite "artistic" pictures (such as they are) are on Flickr too. It's not a completely redundant system, but works for me and ensures the very important images are safe. Yes in theory there are 200GB+ of RAW files of all kinds of crap I took learning to do photography that could be lost, but it would be no great loss, all the important images to me are safe.

    Been enjoying my XF1 but for all the Fujiness of the lens and processing I'm still noticing the limitations of the small sensor way too much. Back to bigger stuff for me.

    I know they have big flaws but I can get either the EOS M or the G1X for under 200. Anyone had much experience with either? Not much chance getting a proper sensor anywhere else for even close to that price and unfortunately that's where my budget stops.

    The M4/3 stuff seems to be holding its price rather too well for my liking and the cost of decent lenses has to factor in too.

    Not going to be doing sports photography and my daughter is a bit older now so no need to have instantaneous focusing. If I go into the deal with realistic expectations will I still be disappointed with either of those two Canons?

    I use Lightroom too, but it's really not ideal if you have two computers. Syncing catalogues between machines isn't even possible AFAIK. and removing from your computer leaves a load of dead images in LR. It's good for initial organising, but less so as a long term solution.

    This photo of me taken by my wife is bloody amazing.

    It's a single shot mind. Not using rapid fire mechanism. (On the camera)
