Organizing, managing, and finding photos

When you import photos and clips into Album, they are, by default, organized in the Photo Well, the main display area for your files, by the date and time of the photo. The date and time could be when the photo was taken by your digital camera or when the image was scanned. You also can arrange your photos by folder location, import batch, color similarity, media type, or tags.

Tags are keywords that you attach to your images to further identify and locate them. They could be based on people's names, certain events, or specific locations, as shown in Figure 2-3. Tags give you much more control when it comes to identifying, organizing, and locating your photos. You can further identify your images with written captions, audio captions, and notes.

Album allows you to use a variety of tools and criteria to find your images. For example, you can use the timeline (described later in this chapter) to specify a date range. Or you can search for specific images based on a common history, such as which photos have been printed. For lots of info on organizing, managing, and finding images, see Chapters 5, 6, 7, and 8.
