Project Time

When the weather turns cold and the snow starts to fly, I have to settle down and start organizing digital pictures.

There are duplicates and bad pictures that need to be deleted.  That’s time consuming but easy. However, some are organized by date and others by topic and this is where I run into trouble. In the long run, organizing by date doesn’t work because you have to know what year or month to look under to find anything. This works for birthdays and events you associate with a specific date but not much else.

So I think they need to be organized by topic and then by date but this part of the process sounds overwhelming. Plus, I have pictures burned to disc and saved on Snapfish but not anywhere else. Not to mention the stacks of prints waiting for albums.

If I get started this November, I should be all caught up in five or six years!

Who has tips for organizing digital photos? I would love to learn from your experience!

  1. I can relate. I have 4 external hard drives, a Mac, PC, 2 old laptops & multiple CD’s. Plus numerous SD cards & thumb drives. I’ll be dead before it is ever organized & in one place. 20 years worth. 😉
