Your kids take pictures constantly, uploading shots to their MySpace page or to Flickr, the hippest of photo-sharing sites, then "tagging" them with keywords so even strangers can enjoy them.

As for you? Well, if only you could figure out how to get them off the camera or e-mail them to your family...

What you need to know What makes it easy for them to zip through their snapshots is quality photo-organizing software. Most programs that come with cameras are cheap afterthoughts. (The exception: Kodak's EasyShare.) But good software automatically downloads photos from your camera, easily locates pics on your hard drive and presents your collection in a visual catalog.

The cool-boomer solution If you have a Mac,use the pre-installed iPhoto; if you have Windows Vista for PC, use the Photo Gallery. Everyone else, download Google's free Picasa software (picasa.google.com). Any of these easy programs will help you manage your photos and let you perform simple edits like removing red-eye.
