If anyone is a PC user and has no hope of going Apple in the near future. I would suggest setting up an Inventory photographs folder and initially sort your inventory by Manufacturer/Keywords. Then set up an Excel System where you can sort by keywords - TBH I'm still working on it but it is every few months when the bug hits me.
The Excel system also serves as an inventory record should you need it for insurance purposes.
i heart excel. i hadn't thought of using it though to link photos... that was a great idea! wish i had thought of that when i started collecting my stamps! i had not thought about the inventory for insurance purposes... that gives me something to chew on. i wonder how i might put something like that together without duplicating all my work...you have my gears turning!
one specific question for you: i've wondered if i should go ahead and buy excel for my mac or go with whatever the comparable apple software is. do you have a suggestion or thoughts on this?
