I signed up for Lightroom and now am about to move from iPhoto 60k plus images. I am just moving one cloud storage to another? What a dumb idea right? There must be more to this. I have enough images now that is it nearly impossible to use them because the time to load all the images makes it too slow and cumbersome. I have the high end iMac max memory to no avail.
My plan was to do the following.
1. Dump all 60K images to a terabyte portable drive.
2. Organize them from the harddrive and get them off the cloud using Lightroom
3. Set up a schedule/discipline to move the images from the cloud once a week and sort them from the hard drive.
4. Keep only the images i am currently interested in or working with in the cloud and move everything else to archives that are better organized
Any sanity to this? How should I do this. The image count is only growing. I am sure I am not the first to have this dilemma.
Appreciate your feedback and help.
