Picasa is another great way to help you manage the unweilding array of folders in your main production folder. Install Picasa and it will automatically search for and start managing all the images and many of the video clips on your computer (and shared production folder - if you set it to look there). Every time you open Picasa, it automatically locates all your pictures (even ones you forgot you had) and sorts them into visual albums organised by date with folder names you will recognise. You can drag and drop to arrange your albums and make labels to create new groups. Picasa makes sure your pictures are always organised.
Like the Microsoft Office Picture Manager that most BBC desktops now have, Picasa also has useful editing tools and one-click fixes. With Picasa you can also email, print photos at home, make gift CDs, instantly share via Hello, and even post pictures on your own blog.
