How to Organize Images?
#10
I have just used Dim and DupeGuru to sort out my images and they are excellent. I had all my images sorted as I liked them, then mistakenly used AVG to root out duplicate files in my system. Unfortunately it messed up all my images. As well as having them all filed in some sort of order I had a huge folder called "Images" with a copy of every one of them there. After AVG did its thing I had some in that folder and some in the classification folders. A complete pig's ear.
Years ago I was scanning old family photos and was amazed at how many contained people and placed I could not identify. I then found a group my father had taken, while stationed in Ceylon, during WW II. On the back he had written who, where and when and it was a revelation. From that moment on I did that with every digital image I took. Who (in groups from left to right), where (even places that are blatantly obvious to me), and the date taken (I know exif gives that, but many of my images were processed in early PS, which didn't retain exif data). So instead of the file being called IMG12345 it will be John, London 1-2-03
Ask yourself, "What's most important for the final image?".
