I don't get a lot of time to scrap these days, but glad to do new recipes:

When you search, if you change the view from icons or list to DETAILS, it will show the path in addition to name.


In Topic: Work Flow And Organizing

Marti, I think your photo subdivisions are a great idea.  I do all my folders by date and topic, but your idea is great, too.

 

For what it's worth, here's what I do:  (">" designates subfolders.)

 

Pictures

>   2012

     >   2012_0101_NewYearsDay

     >   2012_0115_DinnerWithBillots

 

If you have not yet tried "Bulk Rename Utility," I highly recommend it.  I rename the photos inside the folders to match, e.g. 2012_0115_DinnerWithBillots_1435, removing the DSC00 at the beginning of the name, and replacing it with the date & occasion.  That way, I can search many different ways.  I generally don't tag the images, although I've considered it.

 

In my dreams, in my copious free time.  :rolleyes:


In Topic: Resizing Album Simply Classic

23 May 2015 - 04:41 PM

I've always wondered what Syndee's action does; it LOOKS like it makes layers smaller, and adds to the background (my #2 below.)  I resize all my templates and Jiffy Albums in the club to 8.5 x 11.  Brandy's Simply Classic look somewhat more challenging than others. 

You will have to decide:

1.  keep proportions, and either cut some areas off or fill them with more of the same.

2.  keep proportions, and add border to perimeter to fill--this looks automatic with Syndee's Resize It action.

3.  change proportions be adjusting height or width. 

 

The same strategy doesn't seem optimal for all five templates, but I think you could resize them in various ways and they'd be pleasing.


In Topic: Moving Folders

It sounds like your folders are being sorted by Date modified.

 

Right-click in the "white space" of the folder, and select Sort By.  Change to Name, Ascending for default alphabetical sort, and yes, Good Scrapper is correct; folders always come before files.

 

If you want the folder to be the last folder in alphabetical order, name it something like z_FolderName.
