How do you manage your digital images?

Posted on February 10, 2009. Filed under: please |

I have about a thousand inspiration pictures scattered about my laptop, and soon I’ll have another bazillion wedding pictures.  Organization must be imposed before that happens, so I’m pleading for input. How do you archive your digital files, both off- and online?

Let’s start with online:

Do you upload all of your pictures, or just the good ones?  Do you tweak them first, or just store them as-is?  How do you organize them – by tag, by date, some other way?

Picasa online is nice because you can upload directly to Blogger… but I don’t use Blogger anymore, I use WordPress.  Flickr seems to be popular, but something about the UI has always bugged me.  What have you found to be the easiest way to get pictures into blog posts?

Now, about offline files:

Do you have all of your pics backed up, or do you use your online files as your backup?  Do you rename the files or leave them as-is?  What program do you use to keep all of your files organized?  Ooh – this is the big question – how do you manage inspiration files so that you keep track of the sources?

Mrs. Bees, I’m looking right at you (quit ducking!) – how did you organize your wedding pics, either uploaded by your guests or provided by your photog?

    I’ve been there, done that, got the t-shirt (and divorce papers) to prove it. Here I am again, pledging my life to my (new) love with eyes wide open (and heart racing) knowing full well how emotionally traumatic this can end… and doing it anyway.
