Digital workflow pain
With the large gigabyte size memory cards in the market nowadays, how do you guys manage the digital workflow process. Out of the hundreds of shots that i take in a 1gb card, probably more than half get discarded.
However, the process of importing the shots, previewing them and then deciding which one to keep is REALLY slow and time consuming. Does anyone have a better solution for this? Right now, I copy the card over to the hard disk and use Picasa or ACDSee to preview and delete. Even then it takes a long time! Thanks for suggestions..

Try look thru PS CS file browser to rank and delete the shots... See Scott Kelby book for suggestion on how to do it.
It's an impt step as it will cut down your processing time substantially.

try to upgrade your pc to a better spec type (with average cpu speed, lots of ram, lots of hdd space). use a high-speed (usb 2) card reader for download into pc before viewing as thumbnails.
