Day 3 - Results
I was a little worry about today, since today was the day I was schedule to fix 33% of my images and I have more than 100 of them, scatter on 20 directories.
So, to save time, I loaded up all of the images under 1 directory into one big photoshop file. Photoshop has a very nice script that can load many files automatically on one single photoshop psd file. The script is under File->Scripts->load files into stack.
Once all of the files were loaded, I made the photo adjustments. I adjust the color, contrast and level. Then I moved to the next photo in my layer, but if the photo was not good enough or was too blurry or just plain bad, then I removed it from my layers and only kept the good ones.
Once all of the photo adjustments were done, I group the files on possible pages. Some directories had so many images, that I could make 3 layouts from them, so I decided to put the group files in order within the photoshop layered file and to also make notes as to whether the photos were going to make a one-page, two-page or a three-page layout(s).
As I did this, I started getting ideas about the journaling or title pages to use, so I created a text layer for each of those possible titles or journaling ideas, just so that do not forget them, because I know the minute I am ready to start writing titles, I am not going to remember any!
Here is how my photoshop layered file looks for one directory:
