If you’ve got a digital camera, then you need to find a good way to organize and store all those photos you take.

They really add up, don’t they? (Psst… here’s why you shouldn’t get rid of old photos.)

For storing, organizing, and tagging all of your photos with “tags” (so it’s easy to find photos in a search), I use a photo organizer called Adobe PhotoShop Album.

It’s a great software program that helps you to organize all of your digital photos (and/or scanned photos) in one place. I’ve used it for years!

It’s designed to import, organize and edit digital photos, and allows quick and easy searching and sharing of entire photo collections. It has been compared to Apple Inc.’s iPhoto and Google’s Picasa. Source


Why I like Adobe Photoshop Album

I like it best because you can:

  • Easily group each of your photographs into highly personalized categories
  • Assign keywords so you can quickly find pictures in searches
  • Leave detailed notes about each picture
  • Watch a slideshow of some or all of your photos
  • Share pictures from your photo album with friends online with just 1 click!

Plus, Adobe PhotoShop Album has won all sorts of awards.

I even use it to organize all of my scrapbooking layouts & ideas!

Anything that’s saved as an image can be stored in this photo organizer.

Here’s a great book for beginners using this program. (It was written by one of the developers of the program!)

But don’t just take my word for it. Here’s another great review of Adobe PhotoShop Album.

UPDATE: Adobe Photoshop Album is now known as Adobe Photoshop Elements.
