Organizing "used" Pictures

What do you do? How do you keep track of which pictures you have scrapped?

But, I would think maybe adding a marker/star, etc - some sort of "clue" to the scrapped photo might help?

hehee.. Funny valerie - me too!
I've never really thought about it either, but adding anything to the file name would certainly work, so long as you remember what it means and get into the habit of doing it every time (which would be my problem).

I organize my supplies by putting keywords into the file names. This would also work for your photos. Leave your photos in their chronological folders (I do this too), and then I suggest adding "_Scrap" to the beginning of the filename. Then when you sort the folder by "name", all of your "already scrapped" photos will fall at the beginning or the end of the list (because of the "_"), making it easier to scan through the un-scrapped photos. So a photo called "DSCN0744" would be renamed "_scrap-DSCN0744". Just put whatever your keyword is going to be at the beginning (not the end) of the filename so you can sort easily.
Great idea Suzy, and I love that the change in the file name would group the files together.

That's the way I feel, too.
I don't keep track of photos that have been scrapped or not scrapped. Like Monica, I have often scrapped the same photo in a different context. I just don't see any need to try to keep track.
