Will You Move?

First of all, Mommy wants everyone to know that Meow-Me, Coco, Felix and Boomer didn't do anything bad to end up in jail...she had put Felix under the carrier cover for fun then she noticed everycat laughing at him so she thought, hmm...why not.  We were only under the cover for 2 minutes, just long enough for her to take those embarrassing photos. Yeah, did we tell you our Mommy has a wicked sense of humor?

Whisky : Hey! This bed ain't big enough for the both of us. Move it!
Whisky : Mommy! Ling's in MY bed!
Ling : I'm not moving and there's nothing you can do about it. So there!

Mommy here :  How do you organise your digital photographs? I have thousands and thousands of photographs and it takes a very long time to find what I want / need and by the time I'm done, I need to remove my eyes and soak them in cold water...well, it FEELS that way. Help? Please?

I have a Macintosh and my photo program is called iPhoto. In that you are able to make "albums" and categorize the pictures you upload. I have 6600 photos so I know what you mean. I take a lot of nature photos.

In my days of a PC, I made files and put kitty pictures always in one named Admiral file..flower photos in the next file named flowers. I just I created files, even one called clouds and named them and added my pictures to appropriate files when I uploaded them from the memory card of my camera. Also, if I remember, PC's have a program already installed for picture albums. I never used it as I didn't know about it at the times that I made the seperate files. I truly liked the files idea best.

Katie said to say that she has Boomies chicken all diced up and in a pretty dish, ready for his arrival.

she sends him <3<3<3

Our mum isn't organised - she takes the pictures off the camera once a week and files them under that dateon the computer. She also saves them as film strip so she can see each photo better when she needs them. She also saves them on another computer too in case anything happens so she still has them. She says she would cry if she lost them all but we think it could mean naughty words too1!
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

Old Kitty said...

Awww beautiful Whisky and Ling! It's nice to share sometimes! LOL!

Digital photographs: I'm terrible at keeping tabs on my digital photographs! All I know is that it eats up too much memory so I keep them in disks.

Good luck organising your pics! Take care

Marg said...

We are very disorganized too so we are no help what so ever. Soaking the eyes in cold water sounds like a winner to me.
Oh by the way, I would love to put some kittens around here in jail sometimes too. LOL Have a great week end.

Brian said...

Those sure are cute sharing pics! We haven't figured out a way to organize our photos yet either!

Mario's mom here - I do much the same as Katiebella's mom. I keep pictures in folders - if they are pictures of Mairo, they are in separate folders labeled "standing," "eating," "Napping," etc. I have 6,600 too - not all of Mario, but probably half are of him. I don't know how you could do it other than by subject and then sub-subjects, etc.

Cat-from-Sydney said...

My Mama's bad at organising too so we get Uncle Amir from the office to do it for her. We have those of 2009 and backwards in the external and only 2010 onwards in the lappy. purrr....meow!

Gattina said...

Oh they look so sweet together !
I put my pictures into folders, for themes. For example I have a folder called : "Unused cat pictures" as soon as they are used I take them out and put them in a seperate folder, for each cat one. When they are together I have a folder "cats together"
I do the same for other memes like Ruby Red or Wordless Wednesday. So I know what I used and what I didn't use. Maybe that helps you.

I know what you mean about those photos!!! Just last week I took all of Bambi's photos and put them in another file. I need to do that with other photos too!! Like Tinker photos and Tiger photos, Amanda photos ect!! My babies that have gone to the bridge.
I have pictures of Tiger in bed with Amanda!!! Tiger loved all the dogs!!!

unikorna said...

Now that you mentioned, you have a lot of amazing photos that you should post on Pinterest :).

The Cat From Hell said...

We sorts ours by Month and Year. Not a great system, but its a start.

Me LOVED the pcture of the cats in the cage!

Max the Quilt Cat said...

HH used to organize hers by date, but then you have to wade through all of them when looking for something cuz she never remembers the date she took it. She is not trying to organize by category.animals, landscapes, sky, etc. For my photos. I have my own file and then there are files for Bugsy and Knuckles in folders under them. A file for cartoons goes under the Max file too. That way, anything related to the blog, she goes to the Max file then gets into the sub file for the current topic. Does this make sense?

Have a great day.

pawhugs, Max

Prancer Pie said...

We luffed yesterday's pics! Our Mommy has a sick sense of humor, too, so we can relate! xoxo

Fuzzy Tales said...

I have thousands and thousands of photos...When I got my first digital p&s from my dad, I started organizing them by subject and season (or subject and months), but I quickly gave that up and now just organize by month. Everything gets lumped into one monthly album, except for special things like vacation pics. It's not the best system, but I don't have the time or patience to do more than that. My pics are either floral or cat anyway, for the most part.

I also have all my edited pics uploaded to Picasa, pay Google $5 per year for additional storage.

Kjelle Bus said...

My photos are not so well organized they are just put in a folder called Kjelle Bus 2010 , 2011 and 2012.So my mom has trouble too to find what she is lookin for :)

Mr Puddy said...

Hey, Ling...Ignore Whisky ! Doggie always bark !
and Now I wonder how wicked of your mom's sense of humor ! Let's try put all doggie in that jail !!!!...Ha...Ha ...Ha...( I hope your mom not hate me right now ; ) ...tee...heh

Oskar said...

We're no use helping to organize. My mom person is going through the 4,700 e-mails that have accumulated in her in box.

Whiskey, I suggest a nip on the Ling's bum.

I am glad to know that those kitties weren't locked up for a crime.

Nubbin wiggles,
Oskar

BeadedTail said...

Whisky, the cats take my bed too but I refuse to be on my bed when they are so you are a lot more patient than me! ~Sadie

Our mommy just puts photos in by month and year and complains a lot about not being able to find things so she's of no help at all.

The Island Cats said...

Whiskey, we don't think Ling is gonna move. So you should just snuggle up next to her.

Our mom's photos are just organized by date. And she must have thousands of them. She has the same problem...she can never find what she is looking for either!!

Katnip Lounge said...

Well, we think your mom needs some clothes basket time as a suitable revenge!

Mommy sorts our photos by date and subject...most of the time...

Berts Blog said...

I don't know what your complaining about, you both look totally comfortable. Unless you are like My Vickiea nd you need Lots and lots of personal space.

That must be it.......

Nola said...

I use iPhoto and makes albums for just about everything, pics of family, me, Nola, nature, Wordless Wednesday, Black and White Sunday

Clooney said...

Hey you two look pretty comfy-cozy sharing that bed! (We just lump all our photos together in one folder and look thru them all each time, hence no organization.) PS: Your new header is absolutely gorgeous and fantastic, love it! Ann is so talented.

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

Organize? You mean people organize? What is this word "organize"? Ha ha meow!

Whisky is SO adorable, we think he should be named an honorary Cat. But he has to share his beddy with Ling.

Repositório said...

Hahahaha! Funny babies!

Two Doodles and a Dane said...

BOl, your both doing a very good job sharing!

Mum uses a photo editor you download free its called Picasa and it is free from google! It is amazing, you can look at and edit your photos straight from it.

meowmeowmans said...

Whisky, it doesn't look like Ling is planning to move anytime soon. Maybe you two should just share the bed and snuggle. :)

Autumn said...

Uh oh. Sharing a blankie is not easy.

Remington said...

Cuddle time! Sorry I can't help you with the photo problem because we have the same problem.... Thank you so much for the positive thoughts while I was ill this past weekend! I appreciated it!

Here in Florida you have to have flea and tick protection year around!!! But the ticks are worse spring and fall. Zoie is on Frontline all year long. Heart worms protection too!!! It is expensive to take care of your pet RIGHT!!!
Thanks for your visit!!!!

Tamago said...

Oh I'm glad kitties were in jail only for a short time :-) Whisky and Ling are very cute together. I had dogs and cats together long time ago but they never became friends. So the picture of them together makes me smile big :-)
I have the same problem about organizing thousands and thousands of photos. I spend hours and hours looking for one particular photo!

ABBY said...

I have over 30,000 cat photos.
I label them by subject and activity. It helps to have some title so at least when I look at it I pretty much know what I'm looking at. Sometimes I surprise myself when I find an old file.

Mr. Pip said...

My assistant is the most disorganized person in the world. Quite simply, our photographs are NOT organized. She keeps saying she is going to organize them, but never does.

Your pal, Pip

Au and Target said...

Mine are by date but I know that at some point I need a better system. Maybe next year!

Love the pictures of the squishy kitties and Whiskey's outraged face.

Katie and Glogirly said...

Hi!
We knew you were just having fun with that silly photo!

Next to me, and Glogirly of course, photography is Gloman's biggest passion. He has probably taken hundreds or thousands of photos. He SWEARS by organizing them in folders by date first, then a small description.

Here's an example of how it works:

120309 Katie window

The first two numbers are always the last two of the year.
Then the month
Then the day

This always keeps your folders chronological. And that's a great place to start when you're looking for something.

This is how Glogirly organizes hers now too. I swear, they wouldn't even remember how old I was if it weren't for this system!

; ) Katie

Remington said...

Happy Tuesday, my friends!

Purrfect Haven said...

we laughed and laughed over your post... its all in the faces! Lovely! Regarding photos... we tend to save under various headings - so under Cats, we have 'in the garden' shots, 'bed' shots, 'lounging' shots, 'tummy' shots etc Love Helen, Darcy and Bingley xxx

Father Tom said...

A comfy bed draws friends like a magnet, doesn't it, Whisky?

Organize?? Hey, we're glad you asked that question because now we have all those ideas in the comments that we can read..(and..still..be..disorganized!!) jeesh.

haopee said...

I am a tad disorganized as well. Lol.

Whisky looks really awesome... I was wondering if she were some stuff toy because of the eyes!

Huggies and Cheese,

FURKIDSMOM said...

Sharing can be fun!

Mom keeps most of her photos by date. She does put some special ones (Holiday, special events, etc) in separate folders. She also complains about having to search for a long time when she is looking for something specific.
