Chapter 1. Organized Chaos: managing photos using the organizer

Chapter 1. Organized Chaos: managing photos using the organizer

Photo by Dave MoserExposure: 1/180Focal Length: 48Aperture Value: ƒ/2.8


“Organized Chaos” is the perfect name for this chapter because not only is it a song title (by the band Benediction), it’s also apparently a marketing directive put forth by a super-secret department at Adobe who, from what I gather, is charged with making simple things more complex. For example, let’s take a look at the Photo Browser (for sorting images), which is basically the same as the Organizer. By adding the word “Organizer,” they secured a hefty annual bonus. Now, when they introduced the Organizer (also for sorting images), the super-secret department members all got brand new company cars, because having two completely separate tools that do seemingly the same thing is a home run. But where they really cashed in was with their addition of a button called the “Photo Browser.” It’s the perfect scam, because there actually is no Photo Browser; it’s the Organizer. So when you click it—believe it or not—it brings up the Organizer. That should be worth some extra stock options.
