I want to organize our digital photos once and for all

Our family photos are a mess. We have 4ish years of mostly unedited, unsorted photos in iPhoto. I'd like to get a handle on what's there, sort and/or edit, possibly print some books (our son was born in 2011) and create a system that helps us avoid this disaster going forward. More details inside. [more inside]

Windows software to organize photos and videos by date taken

We have our windows 7 computer organized by user, and the folder system is a mess. I want to be able to browse photos, and videos, by one simple criteria, date taken. For example, want to see every picture and video on my PC That was taken on July 19, 2013. I don't want it to be tricked by the save date, the edit date, what folder it's in, or which camera was used. Only the date I snapped the shot. Fantastic would be some kind of timeline that you can very quickly scroll thru and it shows you some kind of date display where you're at.

Photo Issues

Help my non-profit's photo problem! The non-profit organization I recently started working with has nearly 2,000 photos from years past that I'd like to sort in a meaningful fashion, whether by filenames and folders or with a program. I'd like people to be able to browse/search by date, the program involved (After-School, Food Pantry, etc), and the activity going on in the photo. The clincher: Must be easy to use, free, and can run on Windows 98. [more inside]

Photo Software

Can anyone help me find photo organization software with some specific characteristics? I use WinXP. I want to be able to place each photo in multiple categories, and I'd like to be able to output the categories as simple .html files, as that is my archival system of choice. I don't care about uploading to the web. Free is better, but I am willing to shell out a few bucks for the right software. [more inside]
