Clip Art Organization

As those of you that know me well know that I am compulsive about quite a few things.
One of them is clipart.
OK, I admit it.
I have a problem.
I
LOVE
CLIPART!
I am quite the junkie in that respect.
Sometimes I just have to have it
even though I don't "NEED" it
or really have a use for it.
If I like it,
I want it!

The problem is, I have so much that I need a better way to organize my files.
Currently I have them filed by artist/creator.


I often have a hard time finding exactly what I am looking for.
I have even been known to purchase a file that I already own
just because I can't find the original.

I need help
(or an intervention!)

How do you organize your digital clipart and images? 
I am looking for a better way to see at a glance what I have. 
I would love to hear/see how you organize yours.

Comment or link up below with how you organize your digital images.

  1. I have my files organized like you do. I learned a very valuable lesson recently though...BACK UP! I was five minutes from backing up my thumb drive and bending it in the computer. I lost so much stuff. This is the second time this has happened. I'm going to slowly have to build back all my files. :*(

  2. Mine are mostly grouped in themes and I tend to create new folders as I go. I also sometimes save things twice if I think they fit into more than one category. I have a main folder for backgrounds and another one for frames and then within those there are other folders e.g. dots, chevron. Some of my other folders are: animals, food, people, school stuff, maths, monsters etc. I find that system works for me when I am looking for something. Good luck.

  3. I use an App called Pixa on my Mac. It is simply FANTASTIC! I have all my clip art organized into folders. And within each folder, I can search for a color, a specific artist, etc. I LOVE it!
