It works on my computer and Ipad and will sync between devices. There's also Skitch, a cousin of Evernote that will let you doodle with your finger on your tablet and make notes on photos. Here's a sample.

    The cool thing is that it's synced into the cloud and I can search for the note. Being horribly disorganized and tend to lose paper, I'll probably stick with this.

    Just out of curiosity, how do you keep track of what notes go with what print? Do you print out a copy of your picture notes and keep with the print?

    My own hand written method is to make notes on a print exposure record like the attached one. I hole punch the paper and file it with the negative sleeve.
    That works well for me, because the pile of negatives is growing, and it's near impossible to keep it organized in any other way.

    I only make notes if I the printing is super complex or if I plan to make more of the same print later. Your system looks great along with other APUGers.

    For me, I don't like complicated solutions unless I find an advantage. Being dyslexic, I have horrible hand writing and I'm very disorganized. While in college, using a computer to write my papers saved my professors from reading my illegible handwriting. I still struggle with writing by hand. Typing is also tough because I also have dysgraphia. Spell check is a saving grace for me.

    Ok. I was only trying to understand how you keep your notes associated with a particular negative or print.

    Understand about dyslexia. My step son has a mild version of it. I know it can be challenging.
