Organizing Digital Photo Clutter

Pin it button

We've been thinking, our digital photo files are a mess. Sure there are programs that allow us to look at them all, but we take lots of photos with our digital SLR. We find that iPhoto makes a mess of our originals and makes it difficult for us to do some serious editing or searching. Sometimes we upload them to use on the web, put them on Flickr to share, and sometimes we just want to dig out a photo from an old vacation. We end up using multiple programs and wasting a lot of time. The bottom line, our system is a mess, so we set out in search of some advice to see what works.We went to the experts over at Photo.net. Who else would know how to organize photos other than legions of photographers? We found a couple of threads that were particularly useful and we thought we'd share them.

But we know we our surrounded by some pretty creative and organized individuals. So, dear AT Readers, you probably have some great ideas as well, please share.
