An overview of this open-source graphics program, with a focus on photographic issues.

If you have photos that are important to you, you should take steps to protect them. Every day someone loses a lifetime of memories because they didn't take these steps. Don't be one of them. In this tutorial I explain how I backup and protect my photos and what my workflow is like. You may find some ideas here that you can use.

Great Show

Love the Show. I'll have to use your directory structure for my photo management. I'm very paranoid about editing the only copy of an image then losing the original image in the process (GIMP = Scary Edit). Thanks again.

Glad I could help

I'm happy to see that my methods are of some use to others. I'm working on some more material for 2023 on photos and editing.
