Tidying & backing up my images

Hi everyone,

At the moment, I’m tidying and then backing up my photos. I usually do a back-up every two months or so, but I’m embarrassed to say that my last back-up was nearly two years ago.  I started using Lightroom 5 in July 2014, when I edited a large batch of photos I took while on holiday in Austria. I was very pleased with the results (and how fast I was able to do the work using LR).

So at present, I’m going through some older sets of photos from July 2013 to July 2014, re-editing them with LR, before I delete all my RAW images.  I’ll keep the JPG versions on both DVDs and external hard drives.

To show you another example of how good LR is, here’s a horse photo I took back in March 2014 on one of our walks with The Nottingham Wayfarers. I used Photoshop Elements to process this RAW image, and LR to do most of the editing for the photo just below it (using the same RAW image).
