The Preproduction Phase

The absolute order in which you perform tasks like selecting, sorting, renaming, keywording, and so on, isn’t critical, so the order in which I’ll discuss them is, I freely admit, arbitrary. But in those cases where the result of one task depends on the prior completion of another, I’ll point that out. I do, however, offer one golden rule.

Start with the operations required by the largest number of images, and complete these before you start handling individual images on a case-by-case basis. For example, the first thing I always do with a folder full of new raw images is to select all the images and enter my copyright notice by applying a metadata template.
