Organising and Backing Up Photos

I have mentioned before about how I am attempting to sort out how I organise and back up my photos. This is in part due to my limited spare time during my degree course, and taking lots more photos frequently as part of my 52 week photography challenge. It is also due to the limitations of my computer, the screen on my laptop is so rubbish that when I edit an image on it, the photo might look great on my laptop but looks rubbish on any other screen.
Because the screen on my laptop is so bad, I have decided to do very little in the way of editing my photos. Instead I will try and sort them into a simple folder structure that makes backing up easy now, and makes editing easy in the future when I have a better computer.

Camera:
My process starts with my camera. Obviously without taking any photos, there would be no photos to store and backup in the first place.
The SD card in my camera acts as a temporary backup as well as just storing the photos when I take them. After copying across to my computer, I leave the photos on my SD card until I create a backup from the computer to an external drive, then the SD card is wiped.

How To Read A Map


Reading maps is easy, once you know what you're doing. I am writing this as a guide on how to read and understand a map.

  • What's a map and why is it useful?
A map is just basically a picture, drawing or diagram showing a location, usually as seen from above. Maps range from very simple (just a few lines or pictures) to very complex (showing many different features of the landscape).
