Keeping yourself Organized when Editing pictures

As a rule, when taking pictures for my Etsy Shop, I always take probably around 10-20 pictures of the same product in different angles just for the sake of having from where to pick and edit later on. As I am not a professional photographer I always get tons of blurry, bad angle and bad lighting pictures that really, if I didn't have that extra shot i took, I was going to have to take the shot again, uff painful! I know! So that is why I make it rule to have tons of shots :D
As a result of that, organization is key even when editing your pictures in Photoshop or any other editing site.  When dealing with hundreds of pictures one always wants to see what is the easiest less time consuming way to get all your pictures laid up in front of your screen. Using the tools in Photoshop to keep yourself organized and be able to compare side by side is crucial if you want to save time. Please take a look at my newest video and feel free to comment and even add tips! :D

It's funny what you can learn no matter how long you've been using a program! I never used "match zoom" before, thanks.

I agree it's important to have a consistent workflow when dealing with images. I like to use Adobe Bridge along with Photoshop, it allows me to add stars and labels to images and has a number of other useful features as well.

I know, Adobe Bridge is really good for that actually. I created a Collection of my Etsy jpgs, so when I go there It downloads automatically. Abode is really great! I might do one about that too :D

Thanks so much for this valuable info. So much to do with shop posting, creating items, etc., that learning new tricks are often sidelined. Will be back to view more photoshop tips.

oh wow, keeping photos organized is a huge nightmare for me because sometimes I go through hundreds just find two or three I can use!
