MacVoices #13166: Jeff Carlson Takes Control of Your Digital Photos, One Step At A Time

Jeff Carlson has yet another digital photography project going, with a Take Control twist. His newest book will be Take Control of Your Digital Photos, but what makes it different is that he’s writing it online, one chapter at a time, and you can watch him do it if you’re a TidBITS member. Jeff talks about how the project has developed and how it is changing based on reader feedback as he goes. With approximately one article/chapter per week, the book can be enjoyed a little at a time. More importantly, you can use Jeff’s advice to take control of the mass of unorganized digital photos that you are sure to have sitting on a hard drive somewhere. Jeff feels that digital photos should be fun, and will help you take some of the drudgery out of tagging, organizing and sharing them.
