    So, my problem is very simple. I like organizing my things by tagging them. I like photos. I have a lot of photos that I took in 2 different external drivers. I can't combine those two. I can't put all of my pictures in my laptop. I want to organize those pictures. I want to put an driver in my usb and the app/software just organizes the pictures from that driver, than, when I plug in another driver, I want the pictures from the last driver out and the pictures from the connected driver in. Any suggestions? It can be for windows also.


    I decided I want to scan all my school work, but I need someway to organize them, so i thought of tags, is there any software/app that allows me to tag the pdfs with words like "chemistry" "1st semester" "project" "math" etc? It can be for windows too!


    So, I have a lot of songs. I like creating playlists tagged as "happy songs" "sad songs" "love songs" "rock songs", but I usually find myself having to copy and paste songs over and over again. Is there any app/software that allows me to just click on a song and then move it to 3 or 4 playlists, or that allows me to tag the song, or that even shows me suggestions? thank you

    iTunes can handle the music and PDF bits. Learn how to use smart playlists. You can use the Grouping tag and then look for tags in that.

    Keep them separately maybe? keep music in iTunes, keep photos in iPhoto, keep scanned papers in iDocument, yep?

    I would say iPhoto or Flickr if you want to go online. And Evernote for your PDF files.
