    Here's the deal. The Droid is great. But I need my phone to be able to identify people by their name tagged to their pic. I am a physician and I photo all my new patients so I can identify them when they call me. I have nearly 800 photos I'd like to upload but I can't find a way to search for them by Name. Finding by date won't help. Any suggestions?

    Were you able to find any solutions? I'd also like to have my photos stored alphabetically.

    Download ASTRO file manager from the marketplace. Your pictures taken by your camera should be under /sdcard/DCIM/camera

    I downloaded Astro. It works!! Thanks so much. It's perfect. The gmail contacts is a great idea, too. I may try that. Thanks for your help guys.

    Since the photos in the gallery appear in date order, then simply manipulate that date. I posted the following answer a month ago in the 2.1 Bugs and Questions sticky thread. That's one of the best places to look first.
