Do you use iPhoto (or whatever photo-sorting app) for, um, everything?

I use iPhoto to keep the digipics of my family and friends, office, and miscellaneous things I have the urge to snap with my ubiquitous iPhone.

However, one class of photos that I don't keep on iPhoto are those that men (and women, I'm sure) tend to collect that they don't necessarily discuss with their Significant Others. I keep those in a separate folder in my main Pictures folder.

Do you all do this? Or am I the only guy who keeps the Perv Bank away from the photos of Junior's last birthday party?

I mastered the use of organizing my photos into folders quite a while ago. I've never really seen the point in having an App to do basically the same thing. The 'special' photos are obviously hidden from view

I use iPhoto Tags and the "Hide" function to conceal things that shouldn't be seen by the casual observer. It isn't to hide anything from my wife (who would be the subject of many of the hidden pictures), but simply to keep someone glancing over my shoulder from seeing them.

My wife knows that I have risqué pics - she just prefers not to see them. "I don't care where you work up an appetite, babe, as long as you eat at home." Wotta gal.

My main concern is, if I sync my iPhone with some of these pics on them, is making sure of no accidental disclosure, if you know what I mean. Could get embarrassing around the office.

Maybe it's just me, but if I had those kinds of photos on my phone, it wouldn't be something I'd be looking at while at the office.

Regardless, if its not your wife, maybe the guys at the office would appreciate seeing a good looking women

I didn't say (or mean to say) that I would be looking at those at the office. I just don't want to accidentally bring something up that I really shouldn't while searching for the newest pic of my housecat to show to my office manager.

And, I'll have you know, I married a Wagnerian goddess! She's just shy.

Wasn't trying to take a shot at your wife, just meant that I wouldn't be showing pictures of my girl around.

Any questionable pics, and I've accumulated quite a bit over the years and multiple GFs I keep on an external HD. There is nothing questionable on any of my computers.

Yeah, I know, I'm just messing with you. No worries.

Well, so do I -- just not ALL of them.
