Another Lightroom import tip this week. Do you know you can backup your photos while importing them? Having multiple backups of your photos is one of the most important thing, especially for one-time events like a wedding. When I come back from a wedding, I can't sleep at night if I don't have three copies of my images. You never know when something can go wrong so be prepared and backup.

One quick way to do it is from the import panel in Lightroom. On the right side of the panel, under File Handling, click on Make a Second Copy To. It is a good idea to select an external drive for the destination. Once the import is complete, you have one copy in your computer and one copy on an external drive that you can bring with you and leave out of the house/office. Before erasing my cards, I will have a third copy of the files somewhere else.
