These days, just about all photographs are taken digitally. You don’t even need to possess an expensive camera to take digital photos, as most smartphones come equipped with advanced cameras that can take crisp pictures, brilliant videos, and even stunning panoramic shots. But where do all those photographs go? They are usually left sitting in the camera or smartphone, or shoved in a folder on a computer without ever being organized.
Organizing your digital photographs can be a tedious and time-consuming process, but once you get started, you will have an easier way to access your photos. Below is a simple way to organize your digital photos:
• First, make sure your photos are separated into folders based on where they were taken. You may have folders for vacations you took, parties you attended, events you participated in, and more.
• Next, organize the photos within those folders. This will most likely be a lengthy process, because you’ll need to go into each separate folder and click on each picture. Decide whether you want to keep the picture or not. If you do want to keep it, give it an identifying name (such as “Bahamas, Sunset, June 2013”) so you know exactly what the picture is about.
• Lastly, decide if you want to continue to store your photos on your computer’s hard drive or import them to a photo website on the Internet (such as Photobucket.com or Flickr.com), so it’s available to view wherever you are, as long as you have a computer or smartphone connected to the Internet.
