I envy people who are organized. I truly fly by the seat of my pants every day, all the time. In fact, if you were to take a peek in my dresser drawers, you may mistakenly think someone broke in and ransacked the place.
When it comes to photos, however, I do have my act together. Memory Manager Software (US|Canada) rocks my socks off - its sorting and organizing features are sweet, the timeline functionality makes me giddy and the fact that my photos are in little virtual power sort boxes, sorted out any which way I want them to be, well... that's just genius. Even my fiance, who happens to be a professional photographer, sorts and organizes his photos for storage using Memory Manager. Psst - by the way, Nick Kelsh is a big fan, too! :)
So... I realize that we're now into February, and that most people set up and start executing their new year resolutions on January 1, but really - it's never too late to resolve to get your photos organized. Even if you've got 70,000 photos (yes, Leanne Bailey really does have that many photos!) jump in and get started. Easily sort and tag them by events, seasons, who's in the photo, or any other way you prefer to sort them. Each photo can go into multiple categories, the software uses the photo's "taken on" date to create an automatic timeline for you, and you can include journaling with any photo.
As if all of the above wasn't enough reason to love this software, it's also got photo manipulation tools like red-eye remover, cloning, color adjusting, cropping, rotating and even that funky technique where the whole photo is black & white except one little section. Oh, and you can share your photos right out of Memory Manager on over to your Storybook Creator software (US|Canada).
Before I sign off, there's one other super coolio feature this software has that I don't think nearly enough people are aware of - you can lay out the photos for an entire Picfolio Milestones, Picfolio Minutes or Picfolio Mini Album (US|Canada) right in the software, then order up the whole batch of photos and they get mailed out to you IN ORDER. Yes - after you use this functionality and order the photos, open the packet of photos, slide them into your album, and viola. Instant album.
I finished a 258-photo album in about 4 hours. Here's a blog post where I talked about this the first time. And yes, I'm still so excited about it - I'm bringing it up again :)
Have you yet discovered this magical wonder we know as Memory Manager? If so, how does it rock your socks off? :)
