Organizing Your Digital Resources

I can’t believe it’s already 2018! At the beginning of the year, a lot of people are thinking about resolutions and putting things in order, so it seems an appropriate time to write about organizing one’s digital resources. Whether you’re a scrapper or a designer, having your digi stash organized means you’ll be able to find what you need quicker, and that your scrapping/designing process will become more streamlined and effective. If you have thought about doing it, there’s no better time to start than now.

Preparing for Project Life: Have a Plan + Planner Reviews

Well here we are folks.  It’s December… ALREADY.  Can you believe how quickly this year has flown by?  I’m sure this month will be flying by just as fast and January will be here before you know it.  To Project Lifers out there, this can be an exciting time because it means you are close to finishing up your yearly album!  To Project Life attempters out there (like myself), this means that you may be thinking about trying it out again next year.

 

You tried this year.  You even managed to stay on top of it for the first few months.  You loved the moments you were capturing and the quotes that you were able to record.  All because you were in that “mindset.”  You know the one I’m talking about.

Photo Organization – Date Coding

A couple of years ago, I made a layout during a speed scrap that compared what two of my sons looked like at about the same age while wearing the same shirt. One of the other speed scrap participants commented that she was amazed that I was able to find the older of the two photos so quickly and that my photo organization must be much better than hers. Up until that point, I’d never given much thought to my method of organization, a simple date code that accompanies my photos, or that it may be useful to someone else. I shared my method with her then and I’ll share it with you now.

Photo Organisation: Back Up

We are talking about Organizing Photos and this month.

 

One of the most important things about organizing your photos is to make a back up!
And I know how important it is to make a back up from your files, because I have had some broken harddrives in the past. Fortunately I had a back up from all my files, so I didn’t loose anything. But I think everyone can imagine how terrible it must be to loose your photos or other important files.

Photo Organization: Tagging/Keywording

Happy Monday everyone!

 

All month long we’ve been talking about photo organization. Scrapping is important of course, but the reason we scrap is our photos, right? We want to be able to find them easily when we’re looking for them. Today I’m going to talk to you about tagging/keywording. Tagging and keywording are just different words for pretty much the same thing, assigning tags or keywords to the metadata of our images so that we can search for (and find!) them later. We’ve talked about how helpful it is to tag your digi supplies, well tagging your photos is just as important.

Organizing Photos – Adding Automation

This month is all about wrapping your arms around your photo library. I’m here to share a little peek into my photo organization process and a couple of tips for adding some automation into your process to make it a little easier.   I use Lightroom as the window into my photo library. I’ve been organizing my pictures in yearly folders for some time, but depending on how many photos you take, you may choose to break them down further into year, month, or weekly folders — whatever works for you.  I find yearly to be adequate for me and because the photos all carry a time and date stamp, it makes viewing them chronologically so easy.

Organizing Photos – Rating

Continuing on in our quest to organize our photos this month, I’d like to offer a few methods for rating your photos. When I was deciding how to approach this topic, I really thought we probably all rate our photos in a similar manner, so how much could there possibly be to talk about?… So I did a little poll among my own photo taking, tech savvy, digi-scrapping friends and it turned out that it wasn’t the case at all.
