Tagging photos and files

backpacktagsTagging files is an alternative to, and enhancement to, creating a folder structure for you photos and files.

Tags are non-hierarchical

  • Many tags can be assigned to one photo
  • Many photos can be assigned the same tag

Tags are meta data

Picasa

  • Photo organizer in its “Library” and editor for simple photo editing: crop, straighten, color correction and touchup.
  • Allows view by date or by folders
  • “Unsupported” by Google now but still the best free Windows desktop photo organizer / editor

Metadata is kept in Picasa database, not in the photo’s Exif fields.  All your tagging work is lost if you move to another organizer like Windows Photo Gallery.
