This may not seem like a big deal today but believe it or not you will get a phone call from someone asking if you can find the original file for their favorite photo they have lost. For great ideas of getting your act together and organized see organize The idea of keeping all of your photos in a one folder is pretty basic, but following their system with dates will be a huge help down the road as you accumulate more and more digital files. This whole digital process is still pretty new relative to photography and your photographic collection. As always remember to back everything up on a regular basis. When in doubt keep printed photos of your favorites, if all else fails you will have a print to work with.
