Workflow: Filing and Finding Your Images

Right, a quick check shows I have some 24GB of photos. That’s a lot considering they’re all jpg files and not huge raw images!
Anyway, I have my own system for archiving at home but it’ll probably need to be reworked – I’ve another 250MB of photos to copy over from my camera yet no space left! I think a combination of storing original images on DVD, and smaller images on my PC for easy browsing will be most useful.
For more ideas, published this good article describing ways to sort and archive your photos. His point about re-reading 2 year old media is good, and hopefully in 2 years time, larger capacity DVDs will be widely available! 🙂
