I finally stopped scanning long enough to prepare some photos for the website.  So far I have scanned about 6000 negatives and at about 135MB each, I've used up about 800GB of hard disk space on my server.  And I still have another 30 - 40 rolls of negatives left to scan.  And then there's all the slides...

Anyway, with all this new raw material to work with, I decided to change my approach to processing.  I've been using Photoshop 5 and an older version of Nik Softwares suite of plugins to process the photos one at a time.  Since I have so many negatives I decided to try Lightroom 4 and the latest version of the Nik software suite for Lightroom.  Like Photoshop, Lightroom has a pretty steep learning curve but so far I'm really impressed with the way it manages large numbers of files.  Although I did most of the photo processing in Nik software's Color Efex plugin.  The latest version has some awesome filters.

The first batch of scans that I've prepared for this website is the 2003 Lijiang, China trip.  I uploaded the photos early this morning so take a look.  I still have to add captions and titles to the pictures.
