Digital Photo Initial Workflow
After shooting the images- bringing them into the computer

Turn camera off

Remove memory card from camera (faster than attaching camera to computer)

Put memory card in card reader (there is only one correct way- do not force) The computer has a slot for SD cards - use an external reader for other card types.

Memory card will show up on your desktop. Make sure your card has a name (use your initials- in case you lose your card it can be identified)

Find your folder on the student share drive. (you may need to make a folder or sub-folder). Use your last name for the beginning of the folder name.

Copy and paste the photos from your card into the folder on the share drive.
(Select all - copy the images- paste them into the folder)

Open Adobe Bridge program.

Find your folder to look at thumbnail images of your folder.

You can now remove your card from the reader-
do not just take it from the reader... You have to "drag it to the trash" or eject the card before removing.

Rename all your images using “Tools” “Batch Rename”
First select all images.
Use F15M + underscore __ the first three letters of your last name, Initials to indicate the assignment (WU for warmup) and keep the original camera filename

example for Paul Pearce: F16_PEA_wu_CIM00216

Keep all your original images. Do not delete any images- we can learn from our mistakes.

Rate your images using the star rating - 5= best 1= loser.

Back up images on your removable drive.
