    SFA my end, just lots of disorganised directories scattered across about four computers and a NAS.

    hmmm I have one folder on my drive called "photography" ... there I have subfolders called: "album 1" .... "album 31" in every albym I have about 700 MB of pictures or very often one album contains one trip on which I took pictures. Now I remember whereeverything is and it takes me up to 2 minutes to find a photo... but... no database...

    i'm a bit like mentos... in "my pictures" i have a folder for my photos and it's full of sub-folders that all contain pics from a certain shoot. so it's basically like "walk 1", "walk 2", "downtown 21.02.05"...
    once a while i put it in order and burn it to a cd. then i loose the said cd and have to do it all over again.

    databases and everything... huh... i'm really awfull with computers, plus my database would be even more confusing than the whole folder system, so... thanks, but... no thanks :D

    I use the computer to suppliment my terrible memory which is why I have nearly all my serious shots listed.

    Also, now I'm doing all my own processing, it's worth scanning the negs to get a low quality "proof" photo before I decide which ones to print!

    I can browse the pics in the folders or pick one specific shot from my list & find it in my folder of negatives quite easily now! :)

    I keep all my photos in the "my pictures" folder. It's then subdivided into a bunch of categories, although most of the folders are just old photos, and there is only one for my recent stuff, so that just gets filled up. I also have a folder for RAW's, and for processed RAW's (TIFF's), and that folder is subdivided a bit, I'm trying more recently to create specific folders for types of stuff I shoot. But no, no database...what would I put in my database?

    I have a big backup problem, I've only saved a very small percent of my photos to CD's, so if my comp dies one day...well, I don't want to think about it.

    Not where I thought I'd end up
    I've been meaning to get another hard-drive, format it as Drive L, and use it for all my photos. Just haven't got to the stage where I need it yet so for now they are just everywhere. And I couldn't tell you where...

    I am unorganized, but at least with my clutter I know where everything is LOL. I have a RAW file for my raw images, a NIKON file for my completed images and subfolders in my NIKON file for things like Mardi Gras, Plantations, Landon, Brett, Devin, Joshua, etc etc LOL

    If anyone tried to find their way around my computer I am convinced they would become quite lost. My pictures are into categories by theme(Portraits, Travel etc.) then there are folders in there with dates, then inside each of those are "Fixed" files, where I put the processed photos. All of which are on a seperate hard drive and I did copy everything off a few months ago, but I am too lazy to do that again. Just hoping my computer doesn't decide to crash on me anytime soon.

    I have a "my pictures" folder with the names of everyone i've shot, or the names of the events I've shot. My computer is actually REALLY organized.

    People actually compliment me when directly linked to share music. I have each music catagory then devided my albums or artists or whatever.

    Yes, I'm really anal like that.
