I’m taking more and although it’s not as many as some, it’s growing quite fast. So I need to get a grip on it. I want them more organised and here is what I think so far:
Get on one of these photo albums
Before I do anything with that, organise my photos into folders by date.
Then using the software go through and categorise/tag/whatever so I then have a date-based set and also another based on how I sorted them. That seems to me to be the best way to do it. Is it?
I dislike things like picasa – and probably others – which just search the HD and then display. For backup purposes that is a mess. I want to know it’s all in one folder.
I’ve got a lot of much older images (on photocd) which I could bring in if I get the organisation right. If you’ve cracked this sorting, does my way sound okay? I’m sure it’s not far off but learning from your mistakes is cool by me :)
