While near are abundant software package packages out in attendance that will back
you match up and catalogue your items (whether it be designs, images,
music, etc.), many, if not most, are costly, puzzling and yet-another-thing
Today I poverty to meet the project of organizing your designs on the two-a-penny.
We will lately use the standardized Windows profile group (though this can be
readily through with on a Mac). I am going to gossip just about methods of organizing,
not any OS-specific functionality, so this can be promptly practical to any
type of directory on any group.
So the early entry we stipulation to canvass is what class of designs we have,
and what would be our second-best scheme for birth to form them.
With that in mind, we requirement to integer out how lots ways we can order
them. Off the top of my head, I can reflect on of a few
possibilities letter-perfect away:
- Few or one and the same designers (One/Few faddy company(ies) or your own)
- Many designers
- Design collections
- Genre or sub-type of designs (animals, flowers, etc.)
- Size of designs (We should label a intellectual register nearly these, since varying the immensity by more than 20% degrades the standard of the design, and from my experience, thats even enterprising it).
Let's see if we can create some latent structures for the examples preceding.
Let's give somebody a lift the early lawsuit of having honourable a few distinct designers, or you
digitize your own designs. If we are certain that the amount of designers is active
to kill time unchanging and you will not be increasing the numeral of contrasting shape suppliers,
then it would variety connotation to initiation thinking almost what description of designs you have.
If you have a ad hoc target audience, let's say you do kid dress or
pet items, then your categories could be controlled to Boy/Girl/Pet type,
Seasons, Holidays, etc. One state of affairs to keep in brain as we inaugurate subdividing
the categories is that you can get beautiful granular, but there's a prickle
of decreasing returns. What we poorness is the power to think,
"OK, I condition a bib logo for a kid missy that has a cute Christmas saying" and
be competent to cognise correctly wherever in your electronic computer it resides.
So let's make the first move grounds our catalog. We have, as examples, the later
[top-level]/Baby Designs/Boy/Holidays/New Year
[top-level]/Baby Designs/Girl/Holidays/New Year
Notice how we organized based off the masculinity. If your business organization is smaller quantity activated
(on-demand), later a instability of the preceding could be more helpful to you:
[top-level]/Baby Designs/Holidays/New Year/Boy
[top-level]/Baby Designs/Holidays/New Year/Girl
The select of how to divide the categories is greatly important, and can simply
be through after analyzing your own personalized desires.
If our business organization is not as targeted, and we use copious assorted sources of designs,
then we have a diametrical state of affairs. What we demand todo is, erstwhile again, fix your eyes on at our
customer bed and the variety of activity we're asked to do.
Again, this is field to how you career. We could a moment ago as all right do the following:
Putting it all together, we could have the tailing structures:
[top-level]/Bags/Fleur De Lis
So in that you have some suggestions on how to bring together your designs,
and support holding wherever you can discovery them.
Next column, I will physical type on this concept, and concert you how you can tag the
designs you own for unforced probing.
