Brian is a photographer and he's rather down about the fact that Adobe Lightroom is about to drastically change with mandatory cloud storage and subscription rates. It has a lot of pros looking for alternatives. Leo says that it's a shame that Adobe is changing what was an excellent app for photography workflow.
Armand is a photographer and he's constantly backing up his images and is afraid he's going to lose data. Leo says that it's a constant battle with photographers, which is why he recommends having a 3-2-1 backup strategy. Three backups, on two different forms of media, with one off site.
Peter Krogh joins Leo in studio to talk about his new book, "Organizing Your Photos." Peter received acclaim by his first book "The DAM Book - Digital Asset Management." You can also learn more from his website dpbestflow.org. He got into it when the Library of Congress became concerned that digital photography would end up with a lost generation of images if people didn't learn to backup.
Scott would like to backup the 50GB of photos he has. He has an off site backup option, but he'd also like to backup to other computers. Leo recommends DPBestFlow.org and its 3-2-1 philosophy. Three copies, on two different mediums, one off site. Online backup would take forever to upload 50-GB of data, so Leo recommends using a local backup option on a centralized network attached storage. He can buy an NAS or build one yourself.
