4 Tips to Organize Your Photos

Last Updated :

Organizing your photos is quite a difficult task and requires some planning. With the advent of digital photography, we have become so engrossed in taking pictures that we hardly know where to stop. Absence of a roll film, easy to use features, and auto-formatting has resulted in more and more people capturing each and every special moment of their life. This practice results in a huge volume of photographs that are usually not organized properly. Such a sheer volume of pictures scattered carelessly around your hard drive with improperly named folders can cause quite a mess in your computer.

How to organize them?

It is essential to manage and organize your photos so as to avoid confusion and headaches while locating a particular photo. It is never easy to remember the exact place of one particular image when you have thousands of photos saved on your system. Therefore, it is highly imperative that you follow some rules for organizing your photos. Else, you can follow the four simple tips given below for efficient organization of your photographs:

Use a Chronological Order:

You should save your photos according to the date and time they were taken. This would ensure that your photos are arranged properly. The digital cameras offer you to store the date and time on which your photo was taken. While storing your photos, you can simply refer to this useful data that the cameras provide.

Properly Name Your Folders:

Giving your folders some proper name solves a majority of the problem of organizing your photographs. A proper name would give you all the necessary details required for locating a particular photo.

Use some Special Software:

There are a number of photo organizing software available online. These software enable you to save your photos quickly and in an organized manner. Additionally, with the help of these software your can edit your images.

Create a Backup:

One of the best methods of organizing your photos is to create a backup of these photos. This would ensure that you have a copy of your priceless photos with you in case something goes wrong with your system.

PicBackMan does exactly what it's supposed to. It's quick and efficient. It runs unobtrusively in the background and has done an excellent job of uploading more than 300GB of photos to 2 different services. After having lost a lot of personal memories to a hard drive crash, it's nice to know that my photos are safe in 2 different places.

LOVE this program! Works better than ANY other program out there that I have found to upload thousands of pictures WITH SUB-FOLDERS to SmugMug! Thank you so much for what you do! :) #happycustomer

I pointed PicBackMan at a directory structure, and next time I looked - all the photos had uploaded! Pretty cool. I use SmugMug and while I really like it, the process of creating directories in is pretty laborious when you need to make 80+ at a time. This was a breeze. Thank you!
