In the old days, we’d print our photos and hopefully write identifying information on the back. Some folks would add them to albums. Then print photos became old-fashioned and digital images became popular. We took thousands of new photos and scanned the old. Our hard drives and cell phones are full of photos with no data. Finding what we want is often like a horror movie. Convenient to carry all of them around but if we can locate the exact image we want, then we’re in trouble. There is a solution.
You’ve heard about MemoryWeb on The Photo Detective Podcast now learn how digital organizing works and how MemoryWeb can help. It’s the digital photo organizer created by genealogists for genealogists.
In this episode, I announce a three-part Masterclass on Digital Photo Organizing using MemoryWeb*.
In preparation for the Digital Photo Organizing, I share tips on how to weed your digital files, snapshots, and slides. It’s not horrible to discard certain pictures, but there should be a plan. And it’s important to have some criteria before tossing for tossing sake.
