Organizing Your Pictures on Your Computer

While browsing in the bookstore last week, I discovered a new book called Digital Photography: The Missing Manual by David Pogue. It's divided into two parts, one about using your digital camera and one about managing your pictures on  your computer. 

The part I like best about it is Pogue's approach to the whole computer section, which is often intimidating for new digital camera owners. He talks about two photo organizing and editing programs that are free and simple to use: iPhoto for Apples and Picasa for Windows. The best thing about these programs is that they are FREE! iPhoto comes installed on every new Macintosh computer and Picasa is available for download from its internet web site.

Check out this book and these programs if you need help organizing your photos on your computer. By the way, both iPhoto and Picasa help you easily email your big digital camera pictures as well.
