Guide by Kevin Purdy: Clean Up Your Photo Collection with Free Tools

Is your personal digital image collection a mess?  Disorganized folders?  Duplicate Photos?  Personally,  I spend every working day of my life ensuring that the VRC's digital image collection is managed as well as it can be, but I'll admit here that my personal images have not received the same care and attention.  That's why I am happy to see  Kevin Purdy's helpful guide posted over at lifehacker: Clean Up Your Photo Collection with Free Tools.  While the focus is on the Windows environment, he offers Mac alternatives in each section.  Full of references to useful tools, this article is a good reminder that digital resources need to be organized for optimal access and management.  Another good reminder: back up, back up, back up!
