Adam has solved some things that literally no one else has, including myself, and it’s not for lack of trying over the past 10 years. For me, #6 was a major game-changer. It’s really super cool and has allowed us to add value to our services with barely any extra effort.

Working through videos have been a huge challenge. In fact, I told many of my clients that we don't process video files with their photo libraries because there was no way for me automate the process, until this course. Adam's course makes it so easy and simple to follow. This gives me tremendous confidence to process any type of media for all my clients.

Adam’s courses are always thorough and very well structured. So is this course. In addition to learning everything about dates in metadata, I finally learned how to apply dates on videos, as well as converting dates from a photo’s filename to metadata. And the best part is he makes it so simple!

Frequently Asked Questions

I only organize printed photos or digital photos. Is this course still relevant for me?
Absolutely, the lessons in this course are helpful for working with scanned photos, digital photos, and even converted analog videos.
What software do I need for these workflows?
Most of these workflows are built around Adobe Lightroom Classic, but you’ll also need two Lightroom plug-ins and two desktop apps. The cost of the software is less than $100 plus a subscription to the Adobe Creative Cloud Photography Plan, which is currently only $10/month. For more details watch the free Lesson 1.3.
This looks similar to some lessons in your Lightroom course. Do I still need to take this course?
Two of the workflows I teach in this course are also in my Lightroom course, but most of the workflows are completely new and unique. There’s a bit of overlap between these two courses, but it’s the perfect companion pair. Even the overlapping lessons have been re-recorded from scratch for this course.
Can I follow these workflows on Mac and Windows computers?
There are eleven workflows in this course, and seven of them can be done on Mac and Windows. Three of the workflows can only be done on a Mac because they rely on Mac-only software called GraphicConverter.

Mind blowing information will change your entire life!

Adam, this course....I didn’t even know I needed to take this course and then once I started I cannot believe I had ever doubted it. Your class is well worth my time and money to sort out the complicated work that is photo and video organizing. I am so grateful to be able to take this course!

Good investment of time and money
by Renee Grantham

Although I had learned much about date corrections for images at Metadata Camp 2018, this was a great refresher. The new knowledge concerning videos was the reason I enrolled. I look forward to using my new skills on my own archives and my clients' video archives as well.
