I remember reading somewhere in one of your blog posts or DAP articles that you do not use a catalog like Lightroom to manage your image files and I was hoping you could elaborate a little on your system.
I've been a Lightroom user for years and I've always used it for file management, but after an unsavory experience with Adobe customer service I am trying to cut as much of their service out of my workflow as possible (have to retain Photoshop for work, but I'm finding alternatives for Premier, InDesign, and Lightroom).
I will likely use Capture One for the majority of my RAW conversions but I dislike their catalog function, hence my interest in alternatives.
DIGLLOYD: Added to DAP is an introduction to organizing your files: is a simple solution better and lower overhead than Lightroom or Aperture or similar programs? What about your dependency on specific software programs and possible migration away from that software? And so on. I share my thoughts as to how I approach the organization of my voluminous shooting and how the best of both worlds is possible, and not in conflict when approached correctly.
