With our Resource pages, we are able to connect you to more resources, tools and tips via the links located throughout our eBooks.
Digitizing Your Photos with Your Camera & Lightroom:
DYP has two big categories of resources. Click on each to get a feel for the variety of resources. You may not need it now, but will hopefully have an aha! moment then know where to go to learn more.
DYP readers can benefit from scanning down the OYP list (below) for information not referenced in that material.
For Organizing Your Photos:
Below are links to various resources mentioned in Organizing Your Photos, and some other stuff as well. If you’d like to be listed, or if you can’t find something that’s referenced in the book, contact me.
- Backblaze, a great service to backup your computer’s hard drive. It’s not really a service to back up a big media collection, but it’s a nice automatic solution to keep a hard drive backed up. Read about how it saved my daughter’s data.
