- Plug my Fuji F31fd in via USB
- Fight with Windows Explorer to actually get it to display some thumbnails from the camera. What was wrong with just showing cameras as mass storage devices?
- Drag and drop photos from trip into new folder on my HDD
- Browse through photos using the fullscreen view in IfranView
- Cull any rubbish, duplicates etc. Manually eyeball “highlights” that I want to upload to Flickr
- Open up Flickr Upload
- Drag my chosen “highlights” from Explorer window into Flickr Uploader
- Re-order, rotate and add to sets where appropriate
- Hit upload – wait a while…
- Browse photos on flickr adding metadata where appropriate and cropping/adjusting using Picnik
- Sit back and admire the Set view on Flickr
- Run SyncToy to mirror my photos to a second HDD
Pretty clunky I know.
What I really want is a way of tweaking my photos online and getting those changes mirrored back locally. Slightly hampered by the fact that my local photos are on my desktop PC, which gets turned on monthly at the moment. Ideally I would have all my photos on some kind of NAS which I could then edit and upload from via my imaginary Macbook Pro and access the NAS remotely from work, pub etc. Oh and NAS should backup into the cloud. For free.
How does this compare to your workflow dear readers?
