He talks VPNs, making choices between security and convenience, and shares a disturbing story about how some of his research and recommendations were changed without his permission.

Jeff Carlson has updated Take Control of Digital Photos on a Mac to the second edition, to help us organize our ever-growing collection of images so that they can be located and enjoyed. He talks about workflows that help accomplish this goal, the new artificial intelligence capabilities built into Apple’s Photos and Google Photos, and what they can do for you. Protecting your digital photo assets is just as critical as organizing them, and Jeff has some thoughts on that too. He covers all this, and explains why, if you care enough to take photos, that you should consider yourself a photographer and not just a picture-taker.
