What tools are you using to organise your photos? ie. lightroom, bridge, etc.

I put every shooting event into a dated folder with a descriptive name.

That's all I need to do. If I need to find a day's images, I use Windows' or Mac's Find command to search for a particular keyword.

The Mac equivalent of Windows Explorer is Finder.

Processed images from that day's shoot are in a subdirectory from that day.

Anything more than that is going overboard (for me).

Also I certainly would NEVER use a program like Lightroom to manage my files...I've heard too many horror stories of lost images due to Lightroom.
