Hi, perhaps this is already covered but I couldn't find a blog post about it. The problem I'm trying to solve is regarding the managing of files and storage. I use Lightroom and Photoshop to clean up images. Usually i get back from a dive... throw the files on my laptop and edit a few for social media. When my laptop storage starts to get low, I backup the images on an external hard-drive (actually two mirror copies) and delete the files on my laptop to make room for more. Occasionally when bored or have time, I'll copy an album from storage to .my laptop and edit some of the pics I missed. But then I haven't found a way to backup just new versions of an album and have to overwrite the whole album instead when sending them back to my backup drives. The issue: Photoshop creates a Tiff file in the folder directory of the images. Moving files back and forth means I end up missing things and not backing them up properly, losing Tiff files and the hours spent editing on photoshop. Ideally what I'd like to do it somehow get photoshop to save all tiff files from any album on my local computer in say a folder called "Tiff files." That way Abode knows to look there for the files instead of the album directory. Meaning backing up is easier as I just have to find the newer files (by date) to save to my storage devices. Then I can bring in media from the backup hardrives and edit away without having to resync the whole album. Anyone got any tips or found an easy way to manage this? Cheers, Duncan
