I am by far one of the world’s most organized people. This is the reason organizations always tap my warm body to organize their stuff.

So you cannot imagine how frustrating it is to me that I have so wantonly ‘filed’ original digital images of my work. Several years ago I took a one day community ed class at the local junior college on digital photography. The instructor stressed over and over and over again about saving the original image somewhere other than the PC (or Mac) so that if the computer crashes or is stolen one still has their images.
As I began to send digital images to the external drive I did it with no structure at all. So I have several files of Tall Girl images, both for web and print. I have duplicate files of many pieces of my work. I have unnamed files. I have files with improper names; that is giving an entire group of images the title of the first image. All the while I have been thinking someday…I would go in and organize the files.
