Do any of you tag templates other than by designer?
Maybe by theme?
Keen to hear any ideas or thoughts!
I have a category in ACDSee called templates then sub categories of 1 photo, 2 photos, 3 photos up to 10+photos. And that's the only tag I give them. Oh and a tag called Layerworks also. So if I need to use a template say for 4 photos I know I can just to go to the 4 photos folder. Works for me.
Like Carol, I tag by number of photos. I also tag according to theme. For example beach or Christmas. Sometime I also tag based on colour if it is Double D Layered template.
And as as you know Liz, I struggle with tagging anything at all....so this is only WHEN I get around to tagging!!!!

I'm totally different! I have Album, Artsy, Calendar, Card, Flat, Layered, Photo-cluster, Simple, Double page, A4.
I tend to be album focused so I created these categories so I can choose a mix of templates that work together.
No reason why you couldn't ALSO have theme AND number of photos!
I don't tag too many by # of photos because I know I'll probably tweak that; I do 4x6 (mostly CZ's little ones), 24x12, , album, long journalers, and multi photo.
What I DO tag, slowly but surely, are the StudioDD templates. I try to tag all the elements in each of those template, some of which I bought just for the elements as I rarely do 1 photo layouts. I have a good bit of back tagging to do!

Thanks ladies! I'll probably go with no. of photos, theme, design (as in artsy, layered, clean, etc), and yes Maureen, I think I'll tag elements too (especially on Layer Works) because like you, I've bought some of them for the elements!
I've got a quiet weekend ahead as DH is working on Saturday so I'm looking forward to making a huge headway tagging my brushes, I've still got a couple of kits & collections to do and of course, my templates but I do believe I'm starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel! YAY! Well, for now anyhow!
I tag by number of photos and also if I think a template would make a good calendar topper, or theme page (Disneyland, for example). I used to tag individual elements within a template, like Maureen described, but found that was a little too much effort (even though I am a fanatic tagger!). I will tag the word art though. I use so many templates it has its own library in iPhoto!

Yes, I forgot about the StudioDD tempaltes. They are more like a whole kit! I tag each piece separately, too.
A huge timesaver is this Photoshop CS command File -> Scripts -> Export Layers to Files. Sorry, I'm not sure what it is in Elements.
(And I have to admit that I love clicking one button and have Photoshop do a gazillion time-consuming things for me!)
