Jeff Carlson is continuing to work on his forthcoming “Take Control of Your Digital Photos” ebook, and we’ve just published Chapter 3, “Choose a Photo-Management Application,” on the TidBITS Web site. As with Chapter 2, “Shoot Smarter,” it’s available for free, but only to TidBITS members; everyone is welcome to read Chapter 1, “A Smart Approach to Photo Management,” to see where Jeff is headed.
Publishing this book in its entirety for TidBITS members as it’s being written is one of the ways we thank TidBITS members for their support. We also hope it encourages those of you who have been reading TidBITS for free for years to help us continue to bring you carefully considered, professionally written and edited articles each week (for more details, see “TidBITS Needs Your Support in 2013: Join Our Membership Program,” 17 December 2012).
In Chapter 3, “Choose a Photo-Management Application,” Jeff focuses his lens on the main applications available for managing your burgeoning collection of digital photos. Since it’s impractical to cover every program that has some nominal connection to photo management, Jeff first walks you through the features that are essential for effectively managing your photo collection, and then looks at how the different contenders meet his criteria. And remember, we welcome comments and questions on each of these chapters!
