Hey there! How are you? Are you frustrated with trying to keep all those digital files neat & organized? Is one of your New Years Resolutions to finally get that done?
Do you have camera photos as well as cell phone photos to organize?
Are you a photographer struggling to find the best organization techniques? What about backing them up and keeping them safe? Here are a few pointers on my system and solutions that will hopefully help you create a system that works best for you.
Before you begin to centralize, organize and back-up your photos it’s a good idea to decide on your organizational structure. I organize my personal photos by year and event. For example:
2016 (main folder)
There are lots of ways to do this. You can also do it by event:
Christmas (main folder)
You can organize by family member:
Sally Sue (main folder)
And so on. How you organize is up to you but it will really help to decide on a plan in advance. If you’re a photographer you can do it by year or by client. I had mine by year for a long time. I have since recently changed to organizing by client and I love it. For me photos are much easier to find that way.
Doe, Jane (main folder)
I also break photos down into small albums in order to find photos faster. For example:
I hope that helps with giving you some organizational ideas for your photos. For more information on centralizing your images and back-up solutions, including no cost options, grab your copy of my FREE Guide to Organizing & Backing Up Your Images below!
