How To start organizing photos #1's picture
March 4, 2018 - 10:52am

Just watched your organizing photo video. Wish my life was so organized. How do you start organizing thousands of photos if you have not been organizing them. I started your method a long time ago. Then iphoto and Aperture switched. So everything is kind of a mess. I’ve done some organizing but I need more. So how to start the process all over again?

Thanks. Love your videos!

I would start organizing in big chunks, then making them smaller. First put them in albums by year (all of 2017, 2016, 2015…). Then go back and break any obvious events (i.e. a family vacation) into its own album, and anything that is just random fluff into either “year-month Misc.” albums, or simply “year Misc.” albums. That's up to you. Start with really big bites, and then start cutting them into smaller pieces. 

Make sense?

Yes, you make sense.

When I started organizing my photos, I suddenly noticed that I have tons of iPhoto events. Can I organize them and  add them to my Photo albums and folders ?
