So, a lightroom question.  I use it and love it.  But, since all changes are
non-destructive, does anyone have a good workflow for saving the images?  My
tendency is to save all my RAW files on DVD, then work on them and then
export the ones I have worked on to TIFF or Photoshop files.  That means
more DVDs.  I toyed with the idea of exporting the catalog to DVD, but what
good will that be when lightroom is no longer available in 10 years?

David is absolutely right about Silkpix - at least for my L1.
Yet, I'm so lazy ...

Other - HD, floppy and DVD use the same encoding - the problems if ever,
might be for future generations, not ours.

oh yes - LR, you can extend the use and experiments by changing the clock on
your computer - but it can result in a mess for dates, and more importantly
to other applications/programmes ...

It feels good to learn something from you. I have just downloaded LR (30-day
trial version). Spela is already angry with me, saying I spend way too much
time at my comp.

I've been backing up on multiple CDs and a pair of external hard drives.
The hard drives are for immediate access, the CDs are for off-site
archiving.  The CDs are mostly for the exceptional photos that would be
impossible to replicate; one copy to by brother near San Francisco, one to
my daughter presently in Hawaii.
