Exposure Organizing - Photo Backups and Archives
Ensuring the safety of your photos is one of the most critical parts of your digital workflow. Client files, perfectly-timed captures, and adorable shots from years ago are irreplaceable. If a hard drive fails and you don’t have a backup, those photos are gone forever.
The video above demonstrates how to create a backup system to keep from losing images if disaster strikes. We made this video to discuss some of the main points to consider when saving backups, such as what type of data storage to use. Additionally, we include advice on strategically managing photo archives automatically, methods for freeing up space on your hard drive, and more.
Hi Jimmy. When you have created collections in Exposure to group certain images and these images are stored on an external device Exposure does not find them again. The only way is to upload all images from the external device. Then exposure shows these images in the respective collection as well. Collection also does not show the total number of selected images – only the ones uploaded. Do collections not work well with external devices? E,g. you have a selection of certain images for a customer. The total shoot is on an external drive. It is not comfortable to upload all pictures of the total shoot so collection finds the 100 selected. Thus should these be stored separately? Merry Christmas. Kind regards Thomas
Thanks for commenting Thomas. Disconnecting and reconnecting an external drive can cause some minor read issues for Exposure. Pressing the Reset button will commonly clear the corrupted status. If that doesn’t work, let’s get you in contact with our support team, here. They’re happy to help.
