I have about 15,000 digital photos (all personal family photos). I am starting to use Adobe Photoshop Elements 5 based on your descriptions in your articles. I am anxious to start tagging the photos but am concerned about two things:
As you can imagine, 15,000 photos are difficult to navigate, I really dont want to start the huge project of tagging if they will not be universal to different programs
- If I tag these photos in Elements 5.0 will the tags be usable in other programs?
- More specifically, will the tagging work that I do be visable in the new Microsoft Vista OS?
The tags you add in Elements are also fully compatible with Microsoft Windows Vista so you will be able to perform searches on tag data and all your tags will automatically be displayed in the Windows Vista Photo Gallery application. Windows Photo Gallery will not recreate the same tag hierarchy that you had in Photoshop Elements, but you can recreate the tag hierarchy within Windows Photo Gallery by dragging and dropping one tag onto another to make a nested structure. I nested tags several levels deep in Windows Photo Gallery and did not encounter a limit.
