3. Updating the Tracker
It would help enormously if you could update the tracker before and after your shoot.
To do this :
1. Click on My Drive on the LH side (as outlined in step 2) and that will show you all the folders. You will also see a file called "Shoot Tracker ongoing" on the main folders screen.
2. Double Click on the Tracker to open it and fill in your details on the next available line.
3. Close the Tracker by closing the new tab that opened to display it (the file will save automatically).
You can check the date Last Modified on the main folder screen to confirm your update has been saved.

Click on the link below or the logo to the right
4. Where do I put the project photos I have taken?
Double click on the folder which relates to the subject of the photos you have taken, to open it. Your photos need to go into that folder.
If you were given more than one old photo to restage for that subject there may be a sub-folder for each subject, in which case upload your photos to the appropriate sub-folder. For example :
You will then see some folders and documents displayed on the screen. This is where the project information is.
The easiest way to get your two photos into the Google Drive folder is to have open both your local folder containing the photos and the Google Drive on your computer and drag the photos into the Google Drive folder.
Alternatively you can use the upload feature in Google Drive. Click on "New" top left.
Then select "File Upload".
This will open a folder view of your computer. Navigate you the folder tha contains your two photos, select them and then hit Open/OK/similar (depending on your computer).
