I’ve started tagging my photos, moved the ebay photos into a seperate folder and deleted any images of items i’ve sold. The item’s I havent listed will stay there until I sell them or give up.
I’ve got far too many photos to do this in one day. I’m going to take it slow, tagging about 50 at a time.
Any new photos I take are imediately organised as soon as I upload them, to avoid a future backlog of random photos clogging up my computer.
All the photos I’ve taken for white rabbit photo (i.e. made money from) are all organised.
All my personal photos are all over the place.
I’ve got stacks of photos printed up, half filling albums, lying around, in cupboards. On the computer in different folders.
My negatives and slides are now neatly filed away in my neg and slide folders so that’s something. A lot of them have already been scanned so that when I do get round to sorting them, there will be a nice little system for me to find them easily.
My next step is to tag all my photos with by subject, location etc. This might make it easier to spot duplicates and delete them (I’m forever copying and pasting stuff and then forgetting about it…)
No doubt I’ll uncover plenty of ebay photos. They’ll also get deleted.
When all this is done, it’ll be easier to see which negs and slides have been scanned, and I can continue to digitise the forgotton ones.
Then it’ll be the printed photos. I should just find all the photos that have been printed up and pile them next to the computer.
If I’ve got photos that are in print but do not have a digital copy, they’ll be getting the scanner treatment too.
My final step will be to reorganise my albums, and make up a photobook for my parents :-)
