Digital Photo Organization – StageCoacher

Digital photos are definitely one of the most overwhelming areas in an organization.  Over the past decade, photos have changed so much.  I grew up when you took photos on film, LOL– and here we are now taking 50 digital photos of the same scene every time we whip out our phones!

Do you have thousands of photos?  This post is for those who are like me.  You can watch the video by clicking here, or continue reading to learn my top tips for organizing digital photos.

1. Delete, delete, delete!

This is the most important tip.  This is the one thing you must do if you want to take away anything.  It is essential to regularly review and remove photos that you no longer need.  It’s normal to take 20 photos of the exact same thing.  We want to get the perfect picture. The more photos we take, we have more chances of everyone looking at the camera.

You can take multiple photos. However, you must review them regularly and delete any that you don’t like.  It’s only necessary to take one or two shots of the first day of school for your children.

I don’t schedule the time.  This is something I do more often in the margins.  I might delete some while standing in line at the grocery, picking up my children from school, waiting at the doctor’s, or watching TV at night.  It doesn’t have to be a major chore if you keep at it.  It’s ideal to delete every day, but it’s better to do it weekly.  It doesn’t have to become an impossible task.

It is the easiest thing to do.  You don’t need to organize deleted photos.  You don’t have to organize deleted photos.  These tasks will be so much easier with it!  It is also great when my phone pulls out “memories,” That is why I only see photos that are decent!

One great photo is better than fifty bad ones.  I have also noticed that I am more selective in the photos I take. And how many shots I take.   Click away if it’s an important life event!  If it’s a random event, click away! It will almost always…
