Just curious as to how everybody keeps track of their planespotting shots. Currently I am running windows 10 and a computer specifically built to handle photo editing.
It all begins with the import of photos from the SD card. All photos are imported as RAWs with a JPEG attached through LR. These photos are stored on a work drive (Seagate Barracuda 1TB) where they spend their time as I edit and organize the photos. Every photo gets a specific set of tags:
Location information (Airport ICAO, Airport IATA, Airport name)
Airline info (Airline ICAO, Airline IATA and Airline name)
Aircraft info (Manufacturer and type (i.e Airbus, A320))
Each photo also gets a title with the registration of the aircraft.
Using the system above I am theoretically able to find any photo within milliseconds just by searching for the registration, aircraft type, airline name or a combination of some or all.
When edited and all done the photos stay on the work drive but also get copied to a backup drive, which is sorted by year. All photos are also backed up to the cloud through backblaze which gives me unlimited storage of photos for 5$ a month.
I am interested how you guys keep track of your photos and am interested in new ways to organize and further extend my system.
