Jeff Carlson has finished up his series of Take Control of Your Digital Photos articles for TidBITS, and it has successfully morphed into Take Control of Your Digital Photos on a Mac, the newest addition to the Take Control Books library. Jeff reviews the experience of creating a book with a large audience looking over his shoulder, what additions were made to the book at the last minute as a result of reader feedback, and why he would do it again. One particular topic, the process of migrating from one photo organizer to others, kept cropping up, and Jeff shares some tips for the process, along with general concepts to help you find what you are looking for in an ever-expanding collection of digital photos from your point-and-shoot, your iPhone, your iPad and beyond.
