Thanks for the thoughts, everyone! LR - while $10/month doesn't sound bad certainly, $120/yr - EVERY year - DOES to my inept level of math. There's gotta be another way to organize and caption and tag our photos out there that's not so bloody expensive. Photoshop is at least a one-and-done payment - at least it WAS - although I know they're going all "cloud" also. The TIME to go through RE-TAGGING, let alone "catching up" on the whole tagging concept - while lovely! - I did ADORE it when I had it! A couple - simply a couple! - of computer changes or system/software changes and you're left with scraps of all of your hard work. NEVER the same. Sure, my metadata is embedded on those done. And the tags SORTA transfer. But NOT the same on reinstall - ever - at least what I've seen.
I guess I need to put my invention hat on. ;-) Or find someone - anyone! - to put my humble plea and needs into action. ;-) I don't honestly think we as scrappers are asking for too much here. This whole process has GOT to get a LOT more simplified for any of us to "keep up" with it in any semblance of the phrase.
DayOne - I'll see what I can find on that. I haven't seen anything for Androids that may simply "caption" without putting words ON my photos, for free, let alone a small price. (yes, I'm fairly cheap as a mom of 2!)
I realized the other day as I was catching up on some PRT episodes (new subscriber thanks to a friend telling me I need an APP to listen! ahhhhhh! light bulb!) I realized Stacy Julian isn't dropping into my inbox anymore, so I headed back to her website. No way on her site to get e-mails again (rats), but I DID notice she's got a big ol' question out there in prep for a new round of Photo Freedom "how's it going, what's working, what's not." I've got so much to say on that topic - I'm still trying to organize my thoughts cohesively before I unload. FABULOUS system - but there's gotta be an easier way.....
Thanks for all the ideas, friends!
