My Exiftool Cheatsheet

I've spent a lot of time organizing and digitizing old photos. Exiftool has been a great tool, but the learning curve is fairly steep and you can end up making a lot of bad mistakes1. Here is my ongoing cheat sheet of exiftool commands. [Read More]

Instagram for Slogger

In early 2013, I discovered Slogger and loved the idea of journalling about more than just what I had to say. What I was listening to at a given time is just as important as what I was thinking. However, there wasn't an ideal way to log Instagram posts without other dependencies, and so I took a stab at writing my first plugin. [Read More]

Find images with No Exif Dates

My Dropbox folder is full of images claiming to be "missing dates." 1 Some of these photos were thumbnails or images from DayOne that didn't necessarily need dates, but others were real photos that for whatever reason didn't have dates that Dropbox recognized. [Read More]

100 Happy Days

A few people from work convinced me to participate in 100 Happy Days. Since I'm already doing a "selfie a day" so I figured adding one more photo a day wouldn't hurt.

My Photo Workflow

After listening to the Mac Power Users episode on photo management and reading the slew of follow up blog posts on other photo management workflows, I thought I would share mine as well. While my workflow will be fairly similar to Federico Viticci's with a few exceptions, I thought I would share the way that I take, organize, view and share my photos. [Read More]

Organizing Special Photos with Hazel

Nearly all of my photos are sorted based on year, month and day. Hazel easily takes care of of this for me, but occasionally I will have projects where photos need to be excluded or organized in a different way. With Hazel, I can still account for these special cases with extra bits of metadata. [Read More]
