5 Best Ways to Organize Photos of Any Kind

Last Updated :

We live in an age where storing and organizing the photos is more difficult than taking them. It was a thing of a past where people used to worry more about taking pictures than storing them. It was because earlier cameras used to come with a reel in which you can store a limited number of images. This is in stark contrast to digital camera which come with a memory card in which we can store numerous images. However, with the advent of digital technology, digital photography has become quite simple. You simply need to click one button, and the moment will be captured. Quite opposite to older cameras, there is no wastage of reels to think about, neither is there any problem in developing these pictures. The problem however lies in storing and organizing these images. Some extra measures need to be taken to solve this problem efficiently.

Methods of Organizing:

If you are finding it difficult to organize your photos in a systematic manner, then you can follow these simple tips given below:
  • Store them according to time and place: Whether it is your digital images stored in your camera or smartphone or the printed photos, a simple classification based on time and place can be really beneficial. You can sort your pictures according to some particular time and some particular place in which they were taken. This can greatly help in sorting the images.
  • Categorizing Your Photos: You can also sort your photos in some particular groups according to your friends, families, school or college graduation. This would greatly simplify the process of sorting your photos.
  • Detailing: Add details to your photos. Store them with some simple text on them like XYZ’s birthday, or ABC’s anniversary. This would further help you to sort your photos in an organized manner.
  • Removing the bad ones: Delete all the photos that are blurry or are otherwise dull or dark. You should only focus on those images that are clear and are of high quality.
  • Make More Copies: An important part of sorting and organizing your photos is to create exact copies of the folders and subfolders of these images and store them in more than one place.

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.

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!
