A photographer’s work is hardly over at the end of the shoot. On the contrary, you need to sort, edit, and maybe also share and send the pictures. But even before all that, you need to get them off the camera onto your computer. There are several ways to get photos onto your computer. For example, you can copy them by hand. But much more elegant and efficient is to import them using Zoner Photo Studio.
In our age of digital photographs, you can snap as many pictures as you’d like. So it’s easy to take several pictures in a row to get a higher chance of getting at least one that’s usable. However, you then face a demanding task—picking the best photo out of all these similar ones. But Multi-selections make it easy.
Organized photos and quick searching? It's possible! You just need the right tools. Zoner Photo Studio's Catalog offers exactly what you need. If you want to learn more about work with the Catalog, read on—if you learn how to use it right, your work with photos will be easier.
Having your photo files tagged with GPS coordinates is very practical. Not only do they let you know where exactly you took each photo, but also, using a track log you can see the path you took on your trip and how your photos lead across the map.
You might be among the many photographers who completely ignore the possibility of GPS-tagging your photos. “After all,” you tell yourself, “it’s not like I’ll ever forget where I took a picture!” But nobody’s memory is perfect—not even yours. Scout’s honor: can you really find the precise spot where you took a particular picture, say, five years ago?
It may have already happened to you: you needed to quickly find a photo of your parents, or pick the best out of a set of mountain photos. But your pictures were scattered all over your disk, so just browsing normally, you were helpless. And yet, there is something that helps with precisely this job. What is it? It’s keywords! Keyword-tag your photos, and searches like these become a question of seconds.
RAW’s rawness makes it a foundation you can build on. If you don’t arhive your RAW files, you can’t really do new and better takes on your pictures in the future. That goes double in a world where technology and software are constantly evolving and improving. Today’s new processing algorithms can get you much better outputs than in the past. This, too, is a great reason to always keep your RAWs.
