Hello my Sci-Art friends,
I am (quite) belatedly facing a major OS upgrade to my Mac and realizing I will face Photos. As I migrate (having backed up everything 3 ways), what else should I look out for? What monsters lurk in the corner and what cool new tools might help me?
I am more certain (never be certain) I will have an abiding relationship with Apple than Adobe CC, so I have not wanted to marry myself to Adobe for photos (much as I like Bridge for certain design projects).
So far my library is all in one place, but iPhoto appears to not be very happy about my over 50Gb, so after I migrate I am likely to want to break it up by year or subject or something. I have both reference photos and family pix to deal with.
I do use keywords and their resulting Smart Albums; I am hoping I will not lose that function.
I am happy to do some reading but have not found a great deal.
Any advice is appreciated. Thank you all for being there!
