Christopher, you've touched a really, well, touchy spot. (Yeah, there was a better way to say that... so let me try again)
Our household has three people, three copies of Aperture, one copy of Lightroom, two digital cameras, two photo-filled phones, four photo-filled iPads and three desktop computers with, yes, lots of photos. The challenge is finding one repository for all and one slick, streamlined system for getting images off of each device and onto a centralized network. Everyone (me, too) feels sort of possessive of their own photos and, at the same time, we also want to view everybody else's photos, so much frustration ensues.
Does anyone have any experience with multiple users funneling photos into one big bucket of an application?
Thanks again for posting that question, Christopher!
You might be able to set it up so that each person adds their photos to the Lightroom app from a single computer and just make sure 2 people don't try to add pictures at the same time.
In any case, here's a solution, baked into an app you probably already have/use:
I also use 3rd party backups. Google and Amazon have 5 gig free storage. but there are paid ones that give you much more.
Thanks, everybody, for the great suggestions for our digital photo storage challenge! I'll let you know what we finally decide to use and how it works out. You guys are fab-u-lous!
