Since I shoot both RAW and JPEG, I prefer to upload them
directly to my hard drive using Image Capture into labeled
folders on my hard drive, and then are also saved in Time
Machine backups. I apply tags in Adobe Bridge. I re-lable them
according to job usage and species.
I have bought the Adobe Creative Suite for years and like Bridge
for searching and metadata.
I manipulate the photos in Photoshop. I save the adjusted file
along with the original file, depending on the potential for
future usage in another format (from Fbook to visitor center
murals). I always keep the original files as is.
I'm pretty much tied into Photoshop, althoooooo..... there were
some really cool technique demos for other products. Very
tempting..... but since I have to purchase Photoshop Suite
anyway, I'll stick to it until I don't need to any more.
My long-term thinking is that other software can manipulate RAW
and JPEG files, so If I archive them on the hard drive, not in
"Photos", then it might be easier to try new products, if I ever
leave Adobe products.
I'd love to learn about the new products. I admit I stick to the
old-school, without time to experiment with some of these really
cool alternatives. Other members may have favorites and I hope
they chime in also, maybe on another thread?? Might be a good
article for "Ripped from the List" in the GNSI Journal?
Thanks for bringing this up, Clara.

beholden to Adobe forever, although I probably will be.
