Multiple libraries

Hey there, enjoying your podcast from Sydney, Australia. Question for the show: What are your recommendations in regards to digital photo management? Here's my situation. I'm currently using iPhoto to store my photos, but I'm quickly running out of disk space on my mac book (I'm a father of a 1yo daughter - need I say more!). I have a file server at home which I would like to archive older photos to, but still be able to easily access them. I primarily use the photos to make prints and DVDs with iMovie. I understand that you can create a separate iPhoto library but switching between the 2 is a pain. Would Aperture solve this issue for me? I'm a point & shoot person (Sony DSCT100) looking into getting an entry level DSLR. Cheers, Peter


Archival DVDs?

I'm looking into archival DVDs for my major event photography (weddings, etc.: raw photos w/ Lightroom catalog). Is there a major difference (besides cost) between silver and gold DVDs? Also, should I be giving my clients archival or standard DVDs (considering cost and longevity)? Thanks for your work on this podcast and on cnet. Matthew


Fun with keywords

I have a question for your guest about keywords. I've recently begun applying simple keywords to my pictures so that I can filter using Lightroom and find certain things like weddings, lakes, sunset, etc. I wish I had been doing this all along so that I could sift through my library of photos more easily if I need to find something in particular. I'm wondering if your guest for next week has some quick tips on keywords like a fast way to add them, or how detailed to be when putting in keywords, etc. Thanks so much. Love the show. -aaron
