Plus, my stuff is segregating by format (pictures, movies, text files, final draft files) and categorized by where they came from.  Now if I have an idea, I can put the visuals into the text file right in there.

Here's something I just threw in:

The actual picture I filed with the other pictures in its' set, in an appropriate subfolder in the proper subfolder on the external drive.  But now I pout a copy of it in Scrivener with a quick note (I'll add others later), filed it as an interesting location.  Then I can figure out what it is, what the characters could do there, etc.  The old way would have just been a JPG file with a whole bunch of others in folders, but I'd either open one at a time or roll through them all.  Just doing this gives me so much more context.

What I love about this is the next time I stumble upon something like this, I can slip it right in there instead of having to go back and hunt for it, and I can remind myself exactly what I was thinking.  File and forget.

I actually need to go back in there and divide my scene ideas into "Work, Play, and Fling" folders (thinking Nip/Tuck structure!) to make it easier for me later on to construct episode plots.
