    Protocol for working with an art collection.

    Thank you Phil. Many are Kodachrome, but that was my primary motivation for scanning the slides.

    Protocol for working with an art collection.

    Hi Friends, I have a family slide collection that I have invested considerable time and energy into scanning and, more recently, into learning how to keyword and organize these photos in Lightroom. These slides represent my growing up and are my most valued possession. As I work to keyword...

    Family Photo Keyword Hierarchy

    Hi guys, I've taken some time to try and digest all of this. Does anyone have a family hierarchy they would share? I'm looking to try and understand the structure. I've got 7000 plus beauty Kodachrome slides I have scanned and really want to get the keywording started properly. I must admit...

    Family Photo Keyword Hierarchy

    Thanks Pollok. I'll read through the site you provided and then do a "semantic cleanse" of the keywords to put what should be in metadata in the respective metadata fields.

    All good, I was curious what the sf-210 was worth these days, so I just looked on Amazon & B&H, but in both cases it says that the product is no longer available. Edit: (When I purchased it I think it was around $300-$400. This was around 5 years ago.) All the best.

    Workflow Thoughts? Your input greatly appreciated.

    Hi There - yes, that is what I was implying. I've been racking my brain trying to come up with every possible keyword before beginning my keywording, but I think it's more about a general approach. I see what you are saying - just enter the keywords as necessary and then build out the...

    Hey jmj2001, sounds like you've got a nice process down, but I just wanted to point out that I used a slide feeder in my scanning project. This, accepted upwards of 100 slides and it worked quite well as long as the slides were the same type. (size, material (plastic/cardboard) and thickness)...
