With digital, even with less triggering, you can quickly end up with thousands of photos. And finding one in particular, or worse, a group of images, quickly becomes long and tedious. Hence the need to adopt a filing system for your images. I give you my very simple system to sort your pictures 😉
Pin this article on Pinterest for future reference!
Before you look at it, two things:
- this is a system simplified ideal for photographers amateurs. I do not claim, of course, that it is sufficient for professional use, but it is good enough for most of you.
- I use in the video the excellent DigiKam software. Unfortunately, it is only available for Linux. But it is not very important. Indeed, as with RawTherapee, I’m not trying to teach you a software, but rather the principles and the major points that should guide your use of a type software (here an image sorting software). There are numerous other softwares for all platforms, and I give you links to download them right after the video 😉
(If you have trouble seeing, remember to put the video in full screen and select ” “.720p”)
What alternatives to Digikam then? If you use Windowsyou can use XnView instead. Under MacI’ve heard good things from iPhotobut I haven’t been able to test the software on my own. Anyway, you can use Google Picasa on any platform (Windows, Mac Os or Linux): it’s a little more simple but no less effective!
Here you go, feel free to add your grain of salt on your own sorting system, or ask your questions in comments 😉.
