In the second part of our conversation with Jeff Carlson, author of Take Control of Your Digital Photos, 3rd Edition, we talk more about tools to organize your digital photos. While there is no universal solution, and each individual’s situation is unique, Jeff shares valuable tips and hints for handling photos, Then we shift to workflows and a new chapter that integrates iPhone photos into the process. The significance of workflows in organizing various aspects of life, including calendars, projects, and photos, is explored, as well as Apple-native tools that help you get more out of your photos.
