Renamer is awesome! I used it until I found out about the batch rename tool in Adobe Bridge. ACDSee also has a great renaming tool if you use it to organize your stash.

I keep a spiral notebook next to the laptop for current projects, kit ideas, things to do etc. I also keep a post it right next to the laptop with the 6 most important things at the moment- upcoming collabs, newsletters etc.

I use an exclamation point to start the folder names of the ones that are still due ... it puts them at the top of the list.

I also keep a notepad file with the instructions so I don't have to go back to the site for the info ... running out of RAM way to often.

You all are so organized and have great tips and ideas. If I don't move on to the next round, no worries for me, I am learning so much just by reading all of these notes and chats and ideas. I'm glad I participated or I never would have learned these things. Thanks everyone!

If nothing else, this contest is a fantastic learning tool! Every year i've done it i've learned more and more.

I also have issues with RAM. Found out yesterday though, that it's largely a windows Vista issue. so as soon as i've got the $200 to upgrade to Win 7 pro. im doing it! PSCS5 is such a RAM hog. i literally can't run anything else when i use it. So glad i've got my netbook, it allows me to still be connected to the net while designing

Tell me about it! CS5 ties up everything on my laptop. I'm so excited about my tax refund upgrade next year. Till then I will just keep plugging along.

I have a notebook with design ideas, pricing notes, etc. in it. I hope someday I will get to half of those kits. LOL!

To rename all my files, I use Batch rename in adobe bridge. It's under the tools menu. Thankyou Mandak for that tip on automator I must go investigate! - (macs have so many cool features - I love it! Sorry to dribble - I'm such a Mac lover! LOL!)

Good Luck everyone
You're welcome. I use Automator for a lot of things, I use it to build thumbnail files for some kits, re-name my files and other things not scrap related. If you run into issues or want some help as to how it works, PM me. Maybe I can do a blog post or something about it at some point!

Finally got some love done in the Round 1 gallery, I think I got everyone. Such beautiful kits this round, getting anxious to see the results.

Is it morning yet?

Hee hee. I love how Digital Scrapbooking brings together so many different people from all over the world. It never occurred to me to consider whether or not one of my online friends was in a different time zone than I was before I started doing this.

It's only barely afternoon where I am.

This HAS been fun... just seeing the way it all works. I haven't participated in a contest like this before, so it is a new experience for me. Just like everyone else, I wish us all the best!
