Chapter 1. Love Can Build a Bridge: Brid... > Saving Your Digital Negatives - Pg. 2

The Photoshop CS2 Book for Digital Photographers Saving Your Digital Negatives Okay, I know this is the Adobe Bridge chapter, but before you even open the Bridge, you've got to save your digital negatives to CD. Don't open the photos, adjust them, choose your favorites, and then burn them to a CD; burn them now--right off the bat. These are your "digital negatives," which are no different from the negatives you'd get from a film lab after they've processed your film. By burning a CD now, before you enter the Bridge, you're creating a set of digital negatives that can never be accidentally erased or discarded--you'll always have these digital negatives. Here's how: Step One: On your computer's desktop, create a new blank folder (you don't have to name this folder). Now, plug your card reader (CompactFlash card, Smartcard, etc.) into your computer.
