    Hello Johnnie,

    I keep files in directories based upon shooting date and then use
    IMatch ([url]www.photools.com[/url]) to categorise them based on location, event,
    subject matter, etc (multiple categories for each shot). I keep the
    originals in a folder and manipulated images in a directory below that
    one.

    When my HDD fills up, I then burn 2 copies of the images to CD for
    storage purposes. IMatch keeps track of images that have been
    relocated to offline media and keeps a thumbnail and categorisation
    details in its database.

    I've only been using the system for a short time and so I don't know
    how robust it is, but it works for me so far.

    IMatch costs US$50 which translates to around $80 real dollars.

    Regards, Gary

    I use Disk Explorer Professional from [url]http://www.antelopestudios.com/[/url] it
    builds a complete database with thumbnails.

    I simply sort images into folders that are named to describe content and
    burn CDs.... I then run D.E.P. over the disk to add it to the database.

    When I need to find an image I search using keywords to find the folders and
    then view the thumbs to selected the image required.... from there I know
    exactly what CD to go to for the full file.

    Another one that many seem to like is Archive Creator from
    [url]www.pictureflow.com[/url]
