What uses do you put the pictures to? Do you do any manipulating, like removing red-eye or upping contrast, etc.? Are all your pictures labelled and sorted?

Oh, yes.....and it's overloaded so I badly need to take several days to copy onto CD or flash!

I use it kind of like a scrapbook...storage for pictures, but I also do the fun stuff. I have Paint 7 and you can twist, ripple, pinch and a lot of other things with it. You'd never be able to tell what the original picture was after some of the editing. (And some of the edits have to be thrown out because they just don't work!)

But, of course, it's a place to keep pictures for e-mails, facebook, etc. And sometimes when I'm really not occupied with something more worthwhile, I'll go in and draw pictures in there.....or mess with downloaded pictures from Google, etc. I just wish I had the pointilism option!

Nice done on the foldering pictures on computer, I collect my pictures in the way as well. Scrapbook, I lvoe the idea! In fact I do categorize pictures according to their main colors, not all my pictures are labelled but some of them have other usages such like being used to a documents, powerpoint, facebook etc. would be sorted, some manipoulation to remove the red-eye and upp contrst would be done as well to enhance the fine effects. I love th idea very much, it works convinient!!!!

I, too, have unlabeled pictures...just a long string of letters and numbers so I'm trying to get titles under them so my search works! Who can remember P12785327 when looking for something like deer in the front yard? MUCH better to have names on everything but it's taking a long time to do...especially since when they fixed my computer they duplicated all my picture files so at first I had two of everything! Down to one each, I think, but haven't labelled yet!
