Photo Organizing in a Nutshell
Go from overwhelm to overjoyed in 6 Simple Steps. Chunk it and Chip away!
When you think about organizing your photos, do feel overwhelmed and anxious? Are you finding yourself worrying about where all your photos are, how are you ever going to possibly corral all of them, or if they are slowly being eaten by those outdated sticky albums? I totally understand. I used to lie in bed at night worrying about all of this (and more) until I came up with a simple plan for sorting through and organizing my photographs.
I will be elaborating on my process for the next 6 weeks to keep things simple. The trick is to "chunk it and chip away". No stress leads to success! Here are the steps in a nutshell:
Step 1: Gather - gather all of your photographs and memorabilia into one temporary place
Step 2: Macro Sort - learn the 2 second rule to editing the first pass
Step 3: Mini Sort - explore themes, people, and events
Step 4: Micro Sort - now you're an expert, learn tricks that help to organize questionable bits
Step 5: File - discover the rolling filing system that keeps you organized as you add photos
Step 6: Share - create art gifts, photo books, slideshows, calendars to share your photos
