This question partially applies to any image filing system, but I wonder how PhotoMechanic would aid. The friend who gave me the demo shoots the equivalent of a large wedding every workday. He shoots stills on sound stages in the movie industry and his images are used for marketing and distributed to all fan magazines and People, Enquirer.

So, he is faced with a deluge of files. Since they don't pay him for his time at home on the computer, he does little correction work. Maybe just a bit of contrast/sharpness/exposure modification.

He placed a lot of stock in the ability of PM to tag and add keywords, so he could later find a sought after shot. I wondered how he kept afloat in this mass of images. Does this tagging and keyword put some structure to the filing of images so that you can locate that one important shot amongst others?

I want to approach PP at the outset with a filing system in mind. I just read today that first thread in the PP forums of Nikonians, the one written in 2008 which suggests folders by year and then subfolders by subject MM/DD/YY to archive stuff. Is that the state of the art as far as systematic filing and retrieving, or does PM make it easier? How does it impose order on your archives?

And even before I get my iMac and buy the PM and Capture software, I'll start browsing around in the PM forum. I didn't know one existed until someone mentioned it here.
