View Full Version : How do you organize your supplies so you can credit properly?

I had folders for background papers, tags, etc. but now I'm thinking that I need to put them in folders with the names/websites, etc.... or maybe I should make a text file with the credits and store it with the page/embellishment. Some have a credits text file already, I know, but some don't...anyways, I'm just wondering how I'm going to find anything if I split everything up like that. I saw something about making contact sheets...is that the best way to find things once I figure out how to organize it?
It seems to give proper credit (any DSP graphics are just credited to DSP), they need to be organized by site/designer and then use an album software like free Picasa to keyword tag them so you can sort by "eyelet" or "paper" etc. That seems to work best for the most people.

Sometimes after I've downloaded an element I'll rename the graphic from "bubble.png" to something like "bubble-DSP.png" and then have all sorts of folders in my elements folder that sorts them like : frames, tags, metal, etc. Then not only can I find the tag or frame element, I know by the file name where I got it. It's not perfect, but helps.

That's a great suggestion! I'm trying to decide what to do - download another program and go that route or do something else...such as your suggestion. 128K Ram is making me think twice about running another program.
Btw, I love your suggestions about printing out your layouts in 4x6 as well as the larger sizes! That convinced me to let my paper supplies play out and mainly do digital scrapbooking!
