Managing photo and home movie collection
August 6, 2014 7:43 AM Subscribe
My partner and I share cameras and devices and would like to have a shared photo archive and management system. Because he has a PC and I have a macbook and movie clips and editing are making our library huge, ideally I'd like to manage all our photos and home movies from an external hard drive. What software would be best for this?

Maybe some relevant info:
- I've bought a 1TB external hard drive
- Most of my library is managed by Picasa right now, which I'm happy with
- We would like to use the portable hard drive for managing home movie clips and making basic movies also.
Also, how likely to crash are modern portable hard drives? If this is our only archive of photos, what would the best (cheap and secure) way of backing up this photo library, assuming we didn't need easy access to the library? Burning to discs? Cloud storage? Another hard drive?
