Lightroom organizes all my photos. The edited versions tend to take up space (and it's really only sharpened edits) so I delete the high res PSDs after a while and keep the finished JPEGs. I can always resharpen the image if I need it later.
I'm starting to get ready to back up all my 2007 images to DVD and start cleaning up hard disks. That's a project for a cloudy weekend...

After downloading the photos from my camera I archive the original images in a zip file and then process the un-archived copy of the images. I use a 500 gig external hardrive for storage (relatively inexepensive and easier for mass storage than DVDs or CDs.)

If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the outcome of a hundred battles.

I save all my originals in separate folders by date. Folder 2007 sub folder month sub folder by date and maybe if something of interest I will add teh airfield designator. I do the same with processed images, keeping the file name which includes the date, reg and airfield for example: 9V-JEA_EGCC_jid_20071213_5174.jpg
This way I can search by date, airfield and reg. Everything is backed to a 500gig external HD (less the Â£70 now).
