A recent dialogue with another farm regarding their website appearance caused me to realize that….our own site really could use some help. Lack of time, technological impairment, and procrastination all combined to keep that project on the back burner…until now. I had to face it, the other day—the single biggest thing I wanted to do with the site was have more current photos available. Hardly a week goes by without some visual nugget of farm living going onto my Facebook page; why couldn’t I at least get a few things placed on the site? Then it grabbed me….roughly 5,000+ unsorted photographs, taken over years with different cameras and cell phones and smartphones, were scattered all over hard drives and hidden in folders. No wonder I never tackled the job; the real problem was the job before the job. So with a deep sigh, I took a few moments to learn how to work with iPhoto, and started flinging images into folders. Renaming. Adjusting. It took one hot afternoon’s work, but about 3,000 photos since 2007 made it to some kind of order. As to the rest….well, I have to find them first.
