2.) Keep an easy-to-follow filing system
Once you’ve decided on where to store all of your images, create a filing system of subfolders within this so you can access specific photos quickly and easily.
We recommend keeping it as simple as possible. So, for example, you could file your photos in folders based on date, camera type, or for a specific event, i.e. June 2020, iPhone Shots, Japan Trip 2019, and so on.
There’s no right or wrong way to do this, find what works best for you and keep this consistent throughout. We would however recommend trying to keep a filing system that reflects the original shoot as much as possible.
Whilst you may want to file images based on a theme, such as landscapes, animals, and travel, this shouldn’t be used as a primary filing system as you’ll be splitting up the original shoot among different folders. Sorting your images like this is more appropriate for secondary organisation, such as displaying your photos in a public environment, like Picfair Albums (see Tip 5).
