Picasa Best Practices?
I’d like to devise a strategy for organizing photos. Up until now, I’ve manually organized pictures into a directory tree. At the top level, I have a year, then folders for each month, then a bunch of pictures. For example:
2008 | +--01_Jan +--02_Feb +--etc...
The number prefix keeps things properly sorted. But I’m losing out on searching, tagging, etc, and would like to simply move to Picasa.
I’m curious how other people organize their photos, using Picasa. It would be nice if there was a “best practices” guide or perhaps even a “common organization patterns” guide, that listed a few different strategies for organizing photos on the hard drive. Then I could choose the strategy that works best for me.
How do you organize your photos?
