Today, I am going to show your how I organize my photos. Keep in mind, this is just one way to organize your computer.
First off, I use the my picture folder to store all photos. Then I break them down chronologically. I start with one year folder as in below. There is one folder for 2006, one for 2007 and so on.
One of my favorite features of Picasa is the ability to create albums. Albums are a gathering of your photos in Picasa without actually pulling any of your pictures out of their original folders. I can have an album of all of my favorite photos on Picasa but if I went looking for those pictures on my computer, they would be right where they are supposed to be in their month/year folders on my computer.
Now that you photos are organized, you can find them easier. See that search bar in the top right corner of Picasa, if your images are sorted by events you can just type the name of the event in their and those pictures should pop up.
Any more questions on photo organization? Leave a comment and I will help you out.
