Thatís Lightroom on the screen. I was engaged in applying keywords to photos. The use of Lightroom is the latest method I use for organizing and retrieving digital images. Images are organized by date on my hard drive and imported into the Lightroom database, where I then apply keywords that are the basis for image searches.
The left side of the screen shows the date-oriented folder structure on my hard drive. The 2003 folder is selected. The middle section shows images in the selected folder. On the right is the keyword list, with only the highest-level words visible. Other keywords are nested below them.
The use of Lightroom made it pointless to continue to add image data to the Word file I had been using, so it became static---it gets no new image data. However, it is still used for finding film images about subject X or day Y.
