Have been out of the photography game for a long time but I'm getting back into it soon. I like hiking and will be taking a DSLR with me on many of the hikes, shooting "outdoor" photography. I don't think I'll spend a lot of time editing photos, in something like photoshop, but I do want a good software to store photos, add 'data' to them (in addition to date/time), such as location, name of animal/flower/tree, etc., to search and group them into on-screen (or on my TV?), and to upload them to an internet sharing website (also have to look up those sites for one that is easy to use, and doesn't spam you).
Any recommendations for something that isn't too expensive (i.e., not paying for a features I don't need)?
Photoshop Elemets was made for you. Not too expensive and you can do as little or as much as you want. Plus it has a library to help keep track of the thousands, more or less, of photos you will take.
