I am in the process of moving all my photos and small movie clips from Apple Photo to something else. I started exporting all originals to a network storage and have spent the past days importing everything to Adobe Lightroom as a new photo manager.
I was in the look for something that would work on a mac and that didn't require sending off all photos in the cloud to someone else's computers. I have something like 400+ GB of images in various formats but mostly jpg, cr2, tiff, mov etc. Most important to me is RAW support as I am happy to have 20+mb photos as long as all image data is intact.
One problem that I will have down the road is if I change from my mac to something else like FreeBSD or Linux, Lightroom isn't supported. I'd have to run Windows in a virtual environment just for my photos or I'll have to start looking for a new solution again some day. However I think I am kind of prepared by having all photos exported as a bunch of files inside a bunch of folders.
What management software do you use? Does everyone use Google photos instead?
How do you manage your photos, or I am old fashioned as new youngsters keep everything on their phones and on the facebag and instagram?
