Today, there are many options for managing your digital library, some free, some not. Until a few years ago managing a large collection meant investing in some expensive top end software or simply cataloging in a folder hierarchy. As more of us take more and more images, it is important to keep on top of organizing them, how many of you remember a great shot you took, only to spend a significant amount of time try to find it again at a later date?
So why use an image management program? Well there are many reasons but lets start with the simplest and most important, knowing where your images are. By this I mean two things, firstly that the software knows exactly where your images are stored, secondly that you know where specific images are.
