Organizing Your Photos: Favorite Products for Digital Pictures

Organizing your photos can seem really overwhelming especially when you sit staring at a computer with 10,000+ digital pictures.

Organizing Your Photos: Have A Plan

Organizing Your Photos: Have A Plan

Last week we shared that the first step in getting your photos (digital and print) more organized is to gather them all in one place. Now that your dining room table is covered in boxes of prints and your computer is busting at the seams with your huge My Pictures file, what you do now?

As with any good organizing project, you need to take a little time to make a plan. Diving in willy-nilly may seem like the way to get started but it can lead to overwhelm and exhaustion fairly quickly.  Take a moment to survey the photos you have before you.

Most of us have strong connections to our photos, or more technically to the memories they capture, but frequently they are at the bottom of our priority lists when it comes to taking care of them.
