The ones downloaded onto my computer are sorted by topic (season, holiday, beach, pet, etc) and then in folders by designer.  

The ones imported into Design Studio software are not sorted since I search by type design or shape but any details I have about the designer is entered in the info for that image with some keywords for searching.

This is beyond me. Sorry. I have to actually transfer all my photos to a portable HD.

Thanks so much. I couldn't decide how to organize them and I have a lot. I wanted to be able to access those files easily. Are they easy to find what you want that way?

I have mine sorted by personal usage vs commercial usage first.  Then, within those categories I have folders for each designer.  Then in that folder, I have folders for each individual kit.  So a typical file would look like:  c:/personalusage/CGEssentials/SnowboardingKit and then each kit has subfolders for papers, elements and alpha.  If there are other things like a brag book or quick pages, they would also get their own subfolders.
