In Topic: Photo Organization Software

23 April 2015 - 07:23 AM

Hi, Laurie.  This probably won't help, but . . .  I also have an iMac, and i LOVE iPhoto, but not the organizer.  


I use a dedicated iPhoto library (you can have a lot of libraries) to organize my supplies.  I create an event (folder) for each product, using the marketing images, and occasionally the included sheets of embellishments, word art, etc.  Then I add key words to enable me to find products by color, season, topic (women, children, travel . . .) and/or specifics such as flower, ribbon, button, etc.  You can also have a lot of keywords.  


The actual products are filed in a set of nested folders on an EHD, using categories similar to the keywords.  This way I can pull up in iPhoto all the products that fit my current need, and easily choose one, or a few, to try with my photos - and I don't have to remember them.  


This sounds like a cumbersome system, but it works for my organizational style.  I hope you find a system that works for YOU.

Jean, I'm so sorry to learn about your sister.  I will keep her, and you, in my thoughts, and wish her a full recovery.


Sorry I missed the chat.  I set a timer, sat down with a book, and woke up at 11PM, EDT - never heard the time.  I'll try a page later.  As several have noted, choosing a trait you love in yourself is difficult, a bit awkward, but worth struggling through.

Very funny, Belle - and also distressing.  Perhaps tour services should administer a common sense exam before accepting customers?

I don't have this collection - yet, but I just checked the boutique, and it says the style is a photoshop style.  Perhaps it doesn't work in PSE?  Somebody should be along to help soon, Belle.

In Topic: Paper Template And Clipping Mask

I just checked those SSPapers, and Laura provided them as PSD files, with two layers.  So she might  - probably - also put a solid or patterned paper under the template layer. That would add depth and interest to the final merged paper.
