May is graduation and college reunion season.  Are you attending a graduation or college reunion this year?   Have you been thinking about those days and saying, I really need to find those pictures?  You and your buddies each have your own set of images from those special times.  What are they? Were you an athlete? A straight-A student always hunkered down over a book in the library? Were you in a fraternity or sorority? Or perhaps you were the yearbook photographer capturing the photos of all of those students’ college days. Whether you were any of those, and regardless of where and when you went to college, you undoubtedly have plenty of photos stashed away of your glory days, especially if your class pre-dated the class of 2000. In that case, you may even have slides, negatives, and videotape stored.

When organizing digital photos, figuring what are “keepers,” “maybe’s,” or “no’s” usually results in a complicated structure of folders and sub-folders that we have to repeatedly re-visit to whittle down or locate images. When organizing print photos, the process can be even more overwhelming because of the multitude of actual objects in front of us, and still isn’t as streamlined as with digital photos despite their organizational challenges.
