Digging for lost treasures

While you're busy implementing a workflow to manage your images, take time to organize some of your older images as well. If you're like me, you have years of valuable photos that need to be organized and archived. Not only is going back and viewing older images fun, it can be productive.

Currently, I'm in the process of scanning my older 35mm slides. Some of those photos match or exceed my quality expectations today, but were never processed and printed for a variety of reasons (but none of them very good excuses!). The same story goes for some of my early digital photos. It's a long process, but with a solid image-management strategy, you can probably identify many of your older images to add to your portfolio.

Go ahead and start digging for lost treasures; Bridge makes it fun and easy!
