Helpful Tips to Organize Your Photos in the New Year, Thanks to



If you are like me, the holidays provides the perfect excuse to whip out the digital camera and capture some valuable photos that will last a lifetime. However, these pictures won’t do much good taking up space on your hard drive.  This January, why not make it your New Year’s Resolution to finally get your photos organized once and for all.  MyPublisher is offering some helpful tips on how to manage and easily share your new memories.

Here are a few of their suggestions:

Tip #1:
Delete the photos you’ll never use from your hard drive.  We’re not talking about the ones where the expressions are slightly off, but the ones with obvious boo boos, like your hair blowing into the lens and the photos that your 3-year-old took when you weren’t looking.

Tip #2:
Rename the photo files from their original default names.  A file with the name ‘MAY_08_ZOO.jpeg’ will be much more relevant than “LD1002008.jpeg’.  Both PCs and Macs have ‘batch’ renaming tools where you can select an entire folder and then rename the files in it.  Just remember to be consistent, either by date, or name, or both.

Tip #3:
Create a logical folder structure for your photos.  Unlike your individual photos, try to do everything by month and year vs. by event name. Two years from now, when you are looking for a group of photos, you can narrow down by date rather than trying to remember an event name…. i.e. ‘Alaska Trip’ or ‘Trip to Alaska’?  Trust us, you won’t remember. 

Tip #4:
Share your Memories!  One of the best things about digital images is they can be used over and over again. 
MyPublisher offers several high quality ways to share your photos: photo books, photo cards, calendars and scrapbooks – each one created with MyPublisher’s superior craftsmanship and unique designs.
