Organizing image source

Hi there,

I'm trying to come up with a way to organize the image editing process currently used by my team. I'm new to this firm and would like to get some things organized. First thing being the way that images are handled.

Currently there are three of us that need access to these images.

1. One person shoots the product, uploads it to her computer, cuts the image and puts it in her personal folder on the server.

2. I then, take that image and resize/optimize it for the web and upload it when I'm finished.

I also get images from the marketing guy, whom has his own folder on the server for me to sift through to get the image.

Without going to a full-fledged CMS, is there a way to keep track of the originals, resized files and local backup files? Can anyone recommend a folder structure that would be logical for this situation?

Thank you in advance

Revision control software is designed for this purpose. While it is used primarily by programmers for archiving and keeping track of changes in program files, it can also be used for HTML files, image files, or anything else that might go into your website.

The most popular free revision-control packages are CVS and SVN. Both are basic command-line programs, but there are multiple graphical front-ends as well as integration into popular development tools available for each.
