    Transitioning to online storage solution

    I have been working to keep my library and my mobile pictures online. With my Pixel 3 I'm using, of course, Google Photos {not full quality jpg} and OneDrive.

    Leaps in technology leaving me lost and overwhelmed in organizing photos!

    I did connect my Pixel 3 to the PC, unlike previously doing this with my Samsung the transfer would be interrupted when the screen shuts off. Love using Google photos as a backup. Digital is great but just adds to the complexity and it shouldn't, just too many choices and cameras to use.

    Leaps in technology leaving me lost and overwhelmed in organizing photos!

    I'm 57, I wish I was born later and able to jump into photography in the digital age as a teen and not have negatives & slide scanning issues. Well my concern isn't about scanning and could be the same issue to someone who never touched a film camera. Just a few years ago it seemed simply...

    Remove keyword from keyword list but keep it with photos

    I have photos from about 10 years ago where I used the names of people as a keyword. No longer associated with these people but they live in my keyword list. Gets old when I'm adding keywords and see their names coming across. At best I'd like to archive these names to keep them with the photo...

    Exporting video keywords to Premiere Elements 14 Organizer

    For the last few years I've imported my videos into Lr. Having used Premiere 5.5 I'd like to move up but only go to the Elements version. I see they have an organizer, the keyword structure seems more rigged. I'm not sure if this is too limiting in being able to add all the keywords I want...
