Genealogists know that paper files and digital files are not created equal. Different files need different organizing systems. The Family Curator’s new webinar “Seven Steps to Manage Digital Files” takes a closer look at efficient workflows to organize and manage digital photos and images across computers, cloud services, and mobile devices.
Are you forever looking for the “perfect” system to manage your genealogy research, notes, and digital files? I was too, until I realized the best system was a workflow I could refine and mold for my needs. It may not be “perfect” but it works for me. Maybe it will give you a few ideas for your system!
From capturing images, to importing, to adding metadata, and editing, exporting and sharing, a Digital Asset Management system (DAM) will help bring order to digital file chaos. One step leads to the next in logical order to efficiently organize and manage the assorted digital files used daily by genealogy researchers.
“Seven Steps to Manage Digital Files” is a one-hour webinar now available for viewing in the Legacy Family Tree Webinars library. Webinar access is included with membership, only $49.95 per year for over 1,050 classes in genealogy education.
