How do you Organize your Digital Scrapbook Kits?
How do you organize your Digital Scrapbook Kits? I am frequently asked this question, so today I would like to share a bit about my favorite organizational software, acdsee.
When I started digi-scrapping in 2008, I quickly became aware that I needed to find a system that would let me organize my kits and photos. I was looking for “fast, efficient, and easy.” I looked at various systems, but nothing had all of the characteristics I was looking for, until I found acdsee.
Features and Benefits:
acdsee allows me to create different Albums, Catalogs, and Categories, which all help me organize my “stuff.” What I REALLY like is that by using the ACDSee tools, I can set up an organization system that works for ME. Our brains don’t all think alike. While I might organize my supplies in a way that makes sense to me, it might not make sense to you. That’s just one of the beauties of ACDSee – personalization for the way your own brain thinks and processes things.
I love that I can use colors and numbers to tag my favorite supplies or kits. I can also easily make notes to keep track of things important to me, in reference to a particular kit or product. This is great for not only designers, but also CT members, and personal-use scrappers.
Have you, as a scrapper (or designer!) ever purchased the same product a second (or third!) time? I have! With acdsee that won’t happen. You will know what kits you own with just the click of a button. No duplicate purchases for me!
I can assign Labels and Ratings and Keywords to anything and everything I want. If I want to see all of the buttons I have in any kit I own, I click on my Buttons Category; every button I have will appear. No more searching for that one special button that is who-knows-where. It will pop up for me as quick as can be.
The acdsee interface is easy to use and easy to customize.
And did I say “fast?” acdsee has no trouble searching through over 3 TB of information for me.
acdsee offers a trial, so you can try out their software for yourself to see if it works for you. Try it and see what you think!
