After this de-duping, meta-tagging, folder-fixing shape-up, you should be in a good place to keep your photos organized with whatever methods or tools you choose."</em></p><p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/dht/auto/1273630890.usr20447.jpg" style="border: 1px solid #d2d2bb;" /></p><p>With massive storage comes a massive mess. That is what experience has taught me. From documents, to music to photos, after time, you can easily find yourself spending weeks on weeks trying to organize your files. It only makes sense to use what technology you have to organize your mess. With photographs, it is getting easier and easier. Lifehacker has put up a good and useful guide. What helps is that some of these programs do not only read EXIF information, but can also visually analyze photos to help with your project. You will still have to spend time putting everything together, but at least it probably will not take years to get things in order.</p>
