Still working hard on the photo moves

Fresh when it gets here from Julie Barrett
Thursday, January 3, 2008

The process is taking some time. This is yet another thing I've learned about my photography: The organization process I'd set up isn't as good as I thought. Tagging is going to go a long way towards helping that. When I'm finished it won't shouldn't matter what folder I've stuck a picture in as long as I can search for the tags. Still, I need to do better.

As I'm moving pictures between Flickr and Zooomr I'm resizing everything to 500 pixels on a side (this is how I display them in the blog) and putting some sort of visible watermark on them.

I've had a few pictures end up elsewhere, but there was no commercial use that I was aware of. Usually stuff just gets hotlinked. If I want to get serious about selling my photography I need to protect what I have. I know some wonderful photographers (wonderful people who shoot amazing pictures) who aren't as concerned about copyright, and I don't have a problem with that. I've been screwed over just enough times to make me far more cautious and protective of my work, I guess.

Geez, it sounds like I'm turning into a cynical old lady.

With that I'll hit the sack. The migration can wait another day.
