I've been closely watching everyone's posts (and thus their ideas) about organizing and while I can certainly understand the fear in using the PSE organizer when so many people have lost all of their tagging, etc., I like to be able to keep all of my kits together, but I also like to be able to find items from other kits that will go perfectly with a layout I'm working on with just a click of a few buttons - say I'm finishing up a layout and I have a pink silk ribbon that would make the most perfect finishing touch, and I know I have it but I don't know what kit it's in, then all I have to do is click on "pink" and "ribbons" and I can find it in a matter of minutes, possibly even seconds. I haven't had any problems losing information yet, but I do backup often. I haven't had to use the backup yet. I've seen others talking about Picassa, which is really an awesome program for photographs, but I haven't been able to get it to recognize PNG files - which is what all of the digital scrapping items are saved as. So I use PSE organizer specifically for my digi-scrapping stuff. I don't want to spend the $50-60 for ACDSee, although I have thought about putting it on my Christmas wish list.
