I just have 2 starting folders. Exterior and Interior. From those two folders I go to sub categories like car, bedroom, bathroom, etc. Depending on what the scene is.

Lightroom is made to do just this sort of thing.

 

As well as editing photos (and to a limited extent videos), it's main purpose is to organise and categorise photos and video. You can add labels, multiple tags or hierarchies of tags, and it deals with huge numbers of files reasonably well.

Mei, that's very interesting, Ive never seen that before. as I do already have lightroom maybe I'll give that a try. is it all local or can my lightroom organized files be uploaded to cloud?
