I organized my files into these categories: images, backgrounds, alphabets, and borders.
For the background, alphabets, and borders, so far, that's fine. I don't have nearly as many of those. But all that clip art! Even with just having a folder for clip art, there is still a ton of it! So my question is... how do you organize your clip art?
Some methods I've considered are by author/creator (such as all Scrappin Doodles in one folder, all Ashley Hughes in one folder, then broken down by set in that folder), all by theme (holidays, animals, etc...) or even if it can be used for a freebie or not. (Which, pretty much, would mean Scrappin Doodles in one folder and everything else in another since I don't have a SD freebie license!)
Also, how do you label your folders? Right now, each of my clip art sets is in its own folder, along with any pertinent information that came with it (TOU, preview, button for credit, etc...) Some of them are labeled by the name of the creator, while some are not.
I'm a little OCD about this, but I'm not sure how to get these organized so they are the most effective for me, and easy for me to find! I'm so OCD about my pictures, they are organized in folders by year, then month, then event, but my clip art isn't so cut and dry!
I'd love for you to share your methods for organizing your clip art!
