    Photo Tags

    I'm want to tag my large collection of photos, and need information on how to approach that. I'd also like recommendations on free software to use. I process my photos with Corel Paint Shop Pro. I'm concerned that tagging done with it will not follow if I move to another photo program.

    Any resources or ideas would be appreciated.

    If you save the photos as JPEGs you can add the info to the Exif data. If they are RAW you would need to use whatever format the camera manufacturer specifies.
    I use Picasa to manage my photos with the camera saving JPEG + RAW, because Picasa doesn't handle RAW from my camera. All tags are saved by Picasa in the hidden file ".picasa.ini" in the same directory as the photos. To edit I use the camera manufacturers software.

    cheers, Paul

    Windows Photo Gallery also allows you to put tags on pics.
