This is something I'm always interested in hearing about from other photographers. I did what just seemed systematic to me but find that others do it differently.

I use Lightroom4 to import the images into the cataloging system. As the images are imported they are keyword tagged before they're saved into their relevant folder. I tend to file all my images by dates - a folder for each day, inside a folder for that month and inside another folder for that year. I can do a search on a keyword and find the images I'm looking for. Or, if I remember something relevant from a certain time period I just go straight to that folder. I have a 2TB external hard drive for back ups but also backup/save all my best shots online at Dropbox.

How do you manage your photos?
