HOW TO SPEED UP YOUR BLOG'S WORKFLOW

If there's one thing I hate doing, it's wasting time!

Well, most of the time anyway, hehe.

When I first started my wedding photography business it took me quite awhile to get the hang of things. My workflow was slow and clunky and I found myself frustrated with how long it would take me to get certain things done. I remember one time I needed to have a client's wedding photo file names numbered from zero to 600. I MANUALLY opened and renamed every single photo, (all SIX HUNDRED of them!!!) I'm pretty sure it took me almost 2 hours. Little did I know there was an option in Photoshop Bridge that would allow me to rename all my photos in numerical order in about TWO SECONDS.

As a business owner, it's important to be efficient and get things done! And since I've been in business for almost 4 years now, I'd like to think of my work flow as something I've worked hard to improve so that now it's more like a well oiled machine. Yes, I'm a true believer in the saying, "Work smarter not harder." My goal is to always be as efficient as possible, to get as much done as possible, and in the least amount of time as possible.
