Tuesday Computer

TBT HERE:  I showed a picture of my written pic list a few days ago.  Many friends mentioned "just" keeping theirs by month in folders.

I do THAT too.  I keep all my pics original size, but crop, adjust, and resize. And then export to Mac Finder.


I have folders divided into categories (far left).   Then I have folders by year. After that, I have folders in each year divided into months.  "2107" means 2021 July (07).  After that, each series of processed pictures get a date.  So "210710" means 2021 July 10th.  But that is the saving date, not the individual pic date.

I save all the processed pics at 150-299 Kb to save space.  Larger ones don't show up better on the blog, but I also keep the original sizes for other reasons in Photo.  I may send the original Mb sized ones to the Cloud someday, but I still have space here for now.  I have a 1 Tb hard drive Mac Mini.

I spent a career that required obsessively organizing information, so it is hard to stop even after years of being retired.  Well it was a natural talent.  The IT guys in the old office went crazy trying to follow my files.  They were used to people just putting EVERYTHING they did in "documents", LOL!

But I thought you all might enjoy seeing "maybe over-organized".  LOL!

  13. It is good to have them organized in a manner that works for you as it is so great to look back. We lost 2012 due to some past computer catastrophe but have everything back to when we started digital. Wish there was more before but the ex took all the photos. Witch!
