Project for Today: Organizing my Digital Images
I'm sure many of your are just like me, with hundred and hundreds of digital images floating around your life, all that you would ideally like to be organized and tagged for easy searching when you're looking for specific inspiration.
My current system has been good. It consists of a series of folders saved on my hard drive (and back-up with my personal photos) that are organized by type. Bedrooms, Bathrooms, Entryways, etc.
But I've encountered 2 problems: 1) I find images everywhere and am less than stellar about consistently saving them when I'm out at about (or working on other computers) and sorting them when I get home. and 2) There are A LOT of images in general and are basically just cumbersome to sort through when I'm looking for something. Search-able tags would save my life.
I came across Evernote through a random blog link somewhere and have been considering trying it out, but putting everything over to a cyber site kind of scares me (irrational, since my entire life is ruled by Gmail and Facebook-both not backed up). It's free, searchable, seems user friendly.
