Stay organized with these five apps

ACDSee 15 1

This gallery is also available as a post in the Five Apps Blog.

One of my New Year's resolutions is to be better organized. Thankfully, there is a whole slew of software available to help with that goal. This blog post lists five applications that can help with organization.

Five Apps

1. ACDSee 15

ACDSee 15 is a utility that is designed to help you to organize your photo library (and how can you go wrong with an application whose name sounds like AC-DC). ACDSee can help you to sort and categorize your photos with ease. You also have the ability to do batch image conversions if you want to convert your images to a different format or resize or rename them. The software also gives you the ability to create PDF and HTML based photo albums or to create photo slide shows.

Am really surprised the editors have not responded to these comments at least by working on the format of this article presentation!

Who would guess to select the images to go to the next articles as many pics are for same article.

If the author wishes to get better organized, he could start by telling whoever is responsible for breaking up these articles into hard to find bits - to stop doing it.

The other 2 are ACDsee. but not that new version. Version 2 is by far the best. It is lightweight and very very fast. (Picasa is a bloody system hog) Tag & Rename . If you have a huge music collection (Like those of us in the Radio Industry) This thing is a life saver. I can look up, tag, rename files, rename the folder and create playlists all with a couple clicks. With a programmable mouse, I don't even have to touch the keyboard most of the time.

the first two apps made software i use pop to mind and they're free ACDSee 15 - seems like Picasa does the same things Tag&Rename - MediaMonkey does what you described and some + community backed scripts and support. Their beta supports syncing over wi-fi on Androids. I've been using this app for about 6 years now to manage my 70K+ library, can go on and on about features but take a look you'll love it.....WAY better then Itunes and you can backup/import your Ipod/Iphone

I personally bought Tag&Rename after reading about it here. It has a lot of features that the old Music Match interface had and it is wonderful. Does anyone have any utilities for managing files in your my docs

Tag&Rename is a great little utility for cleaning up a music library. It's a long-time favorite of mine.

I see the first app is ACDSEE. I don't see a NEXT PAGE button. When I press the right arrow, it shows me 2 of 18 pictures. If you think I'm clicking 18 times to read this article, you gotta be kidding. I know you want clicks, but this is getting crazy? Where are the other 4 apps and text?

Poor Reading Comprehension is really a adverse sign of just how bad the Education System actually is when people can read and not see the blatantly obvious. Offering Options is what should be happening and what I find amusing is that by offering the options so many complain and prove that they are unable to comprehend the most basic and simple things. ;) Col

If you look at the first page of this Slideshow the very first line has a link to a Single Page copy of this Slideshow. [i]This gallery is also available as a post in the Five Apps Blog.[/i] Seems that the more things change the more that they stay the same and that people comprehend even less of what it is that they are reading and instead want to complain as much as possible. The simple thing here is if you are one of the people who do not like Slide Shows don't look at them use the alternative and don't complain in a thread that you really don't want to be in to begin with.

This entire format/layout should be used in a first year web design class as what NOT to make your site like. It is ashamed that a professional website has such a poor layout for feature stories.

You would see this [i]This gallery is also available as a post in the Five Apps Blog.[/i] No clicking and it's on 1 page but if you don't want to read it that way and don't want to look at the 18 Slides in the Slide Show I suppose you could always ignore it. ;) Col

Directly under the first 'ACDSee 15.1' caption is a link to the article in a blog format instead of the slideshow format.
