We use PhotoSync (iOS/Android) for mobile to automatically dump all photos and videos to my computer automatically.
I use Photo Mechanic to automatically import my camera photos. This is a huge performance benefit over using Lightroom to import.
- Automatic import upon insertion of SD card.
- Lightning-fast viewing, rating and deleting photos - something Lightroom can’t do.
Organization & Rating
I rate my photos with a specific system so hopefully thousands of photos later, way in the future it will still be easy to find the good shots.
Publishing & Sharing
I use SmugMug (paid) to store all my fully edited photos online in full quality.
I have a folder full of all of my galleries that contains all 3-star and up photos. This entire folder is unlisted but visible with a link. I’m able to maintain privacy but still share an album just by sharing the link to it. Slick!
All the galleries are created within Lightroom using a Plugin, and everything is just like regular galleries but with a publish button.
I use Backblaze ($6/month) to back up my entire PC to the cloud which will prevent the worst-case disaster from happening. Keeping extra copies locally is also a pretty smart idea, disconnected from the computer whenever possible.
