On my own sites everything is remote hosted online, but that isn’t always feasible with client sites. I make it a practice of storing assets in a general resources folder next to the project file, but on projects with lots of pages and images I find it helps if they are split into sub folders for each page. These are all visible as project assets inside the asset manager after adding individually.
The problem in this instance is simply that the client has been continually changing his mind over what images to use, sometimes deciding to switch their location on the site, then go back to something from before. Basically, I wake up every morning and there is an email with a list of image changes and small text tweaks.
Due to all these changes, I’ve been reluctant to delete content during development in case we go back to something, so the asset manager is very crowded with similarly named files. There must be hundreds of images at this point and just imagine what this would be like with multiple resolutions.
In the long run the asset manager will need some kind of major overhaul, but just now, earlier today I would have liked an option to right click on an image on the canvass and locate it in a finder, even for the simple purpose of discovering the original file size. Reasons may vary but quick access to files is a real time saver.
