A blog to share about Adrenal insufficiency, Addison's Disease, Aspergers Syndrome, Autism, Music, Inspiration, Scrapbooking and other elements viewed through the lens of my life. I'm hoping that others who are traveling this journey may find some commonality, and maybe some information and inspiration.

Journaling in the Metadata

I think this post at Digiscrap 101 is a really important concept. This is a game changer.

I think that the combination of stories and photographs is very powerful and the most important part of being a family story teller. Going forward, I see this as the most important part of my job when I deal with photos. I'm bumping the journaling up in the workflow.

New workflow order:

Photos onto computer
Star-1 Stars to Flickr; 2 & 3 stars to quarterly highlight smart albums
Online backup of 2 & 3 star photos, including metadata
USB or EHD backup including metadata
Scrap as inspired

Hello, Patti,
First of all, what a beautiful photo on your blog! I'm going to share your blog with my daughter, who is/has dated a boy with autism and is very interested in that, as well. :)
I found you through Kayla Lamoreaux's blog, Digi101 and I hope you don't mind my contacting you. I saw your comment about Adobe products not being intuitive, but that you are a Finding Photo Freedom classmate, as well. Maybe I have good news for you.
I was totally inspired by LOM and Finding Photo Freedom to create a software for those of us out there who want to catalog our memories, keep journaling notes and create some digital pages, but not to be overwhelmed by the process. I'm trying to keep it simple, as intuitive as possible, and affordable. It's still in the programmer's hands, but he has promised by year end, it will be ready. It's called ScrapRoom Software and you can visit my website to get a little more info. (As it gets closer to release, we'll beef up the website.) My blog is: www.rhinestoneroad.com and the software's website is: www.ScrapRoomSoftware.com
I promise I won't bother you with advertising, but since you specifically mentioned that we had so many things/ideas in common, are a fan of Kayla L. (who I think is wonderful), and were not into Adobe, I wanted to let you know another option is coming!
Have a great day and it was great to "meet" you.

I can't tell you how excited I am about this software concept! A scrapbooker's dream, for sure, to have all that functionality in one program. I'm thinking my PC friends will be very jealous.

We have taken many of the same classes as well :)
