This is the exact
method I started using this year. I
have just been making the folders on a special hard drive that Marvin dedicated
to my iris pictures. The one
problem that I found is that I lose interest in photographing large numbers of average
seedlings that I know I am not going to keep. I ended by taking pictures on only the
best or most interesting ones. I
had a lot of those, most of which I won’t keep either, but at least they
charmed me for a while and look nice in the folders.

post on iris talk:
started a photo project that may help me in my breeding program. I've
made a 2005 folder with individual folders inside for each cross.
Where available, I'm putting pictures of both the pod and pollen parents
in each individual folder. This is giving me some concept (already) of
what to expect from each cross.
seedlings bloom and are photographed, they will be added to the proper
thought I'd share. I have PhotoShop Elements, but most programs would
probably support this project. >>
asked for an example:
it's just a folder in photo shop. The problem may be with my ability to
do these things (technical part) but I will try. I have one folder with
the name "2005 seedlings." Inside are folders like
"2015." Folder "2015" currently has two pictures,
representing the pod and pollen parents, in it. This cross only
produced 15 seed so the file shouldn't get too big.
the pictures side by side gives me some idea of what to expect.
nine crosses took this year and I will do a folder for all, eventually.
trying to send a contact sheet but it was too big. John told me once that
anytime we send more than one photo with aol that they put it in a zip.
So here goes piece meal again.>>
