I like organization. Moved from PC (had em all since ’80). Finally went Mac. First time I imported 2500 pics into iPhoto - I had way to many folders - or as I would say sub-directories.
Abandoned iPhoto - now using Lightroom 5. I travel, and like to take just my iPad Air instead of MacBook Pro. So I can import pics into Cameral Roll, send them to Creative Cloud, and eventually to Mac and then into Lightroom. I still have a problem with organizing. I want a folder for various subjects - not a list of dates. I know this is all my ignorance, but frankly I don’t find a place to create the folders and put only selected pics in them.
When I transfer from iPad to computer - should I be using Creative Cloud? If I forgot about Cloud, and just used the CD card (I leave pics on until they make it to computer) what program should be opening to do the transfer? Directly into Lightroom 5? I have Nikon transfer, but that is what created all those folders.
So should it be Camera, iPad, Cloud, Mac, Lightroom OR CD card to Mac, then LR? I don’t use the iPad for final edits, it is only to see pics before I get back home.
Appreciate any guidance.
