An easy lesson in life that can be hard to learn is that keeping things simple is not a shameful way to go, in fact, it's usually smart! Sometimes you just need someone's permission to go the sensible route, so I thought I'd share a two-second tip from Ruby Mae, plucked from today's comments...

Some sound advice for all of us photographers who have a hard time keeping our precious pix in order...

As a long time photographer, who has been shooting digital for many years now, I recommend for most people to use subject folders rather than date folders (year/month). Unless you border on savant, most people will remember the subject of a photo, rather than the month is was taken. When searching later for photos, you're more likely to find it if you've filed it be subject.

Thanks, Ruby Mae!
