ACDSee Pro Photo Manager: Organizing and editing for wedding photographers

200601bc_acdsee01A Wedding Photographer's Dream: How to effectively organize and edit your photos

By Paul Ellis

For example, following a wedding party from 5am until late in the night can easily leave a trail of photographs numbering in the thousands; even more so when you factor in a second shooter and an assistant.

The wedding may be over, but your work has just begun. Reviewing all of these images to identify the keepers, toss the rejects, and ultimately make the client happy are not easy tasks.
