Organising resource images like skies in Photo

Recommended Posts

Hi

How is it best to organise resource images in Photo? For example skies for sky replacement. At the moment they live in a Windows folder but it's not a very smart solution. Any suggestions welcome.

thanks

andy

I do exactly that.  I have a stock images folder that contains subfolders by category (I.E. Animals, plants, sky, water, weather, etc.) and the image files themselves are named accordingly (I.E.  Moon 001, Lightning 001, etc.).  I guess you could use keyword tags so you can search by keywords, but I don't bother.

Faststone Image Viewer is very good for organising and viewing bitmap images. you can see and find everything at a glance, perform quite a few edits or set it to launch the image straight into Photo. You can also use it to scan into as photo doesn't let you scan directly. It also has a really great contact sheet creator. Select a dozen photos and it places them on the sheet. Put borders on too if you want.

It's a great free program. I use it all the time. Only drawback is it doesn't view .afphoto files yet.

 

 


Windows PCs. Photo and Designer, latest non-beta versions.

It's a great free program for personal or educational use. For commercial use, you need to purchase a (lifetime) licence that costs US$34.95.
