Ah yes, my favorite photo I've ever taken? Certainly IMG_5264.jpg. Or was it IMG_6542? Well I'll just search for it here on my computerâ¦ Only several thousand matches of photo files with similar names. Hmm. Maybe I should name my files something that will make them easier to organize and find later. Instead of just naming folders with dates and vague names (like "vacation 2007") I'd have more luck finding photos fast if I had some sort of system. Maybe "2007.7.4_Vacation_Hawaii" would be a good start. And I could use any number of programs to quickly, if not instantly, change the camera's obscure file numbers to descriptive sequenced names, like "2007.7.4_Vacation_Hawaii_001.jpg." Better yet, I could probably even set my camera to name the files according to this convention before I even take the pictures. That way even if I didn't want to use one of the many programs for organizing and browsing photos and appending their metadata with pertinent keywords, I could always rely on my computer's search functionality to get exactly the photos I want in mere moments. If only I was that smart. And if only I'd actually gone to Hawaii last summer.
