Finding your photos can sometimes be very difficult. Especially when they have abstract names like DSC_9237. And yet if you just rename your photos with the right tactics, you’ll never get lost in your collection again.
You know the situation: you need to find a specific photo, but it’s lost among your piles of other pictures and folders. Or you do find it, but only after spending dozens of minutes. And yet there’s a way to organize your photos using keywords so that you can find any one of them in just seconds.
Are you prepared for the clock change? If you care about preventing chaos in your collection, then that preparation includes double-checking the date in your camera. But if you do end up with a bad time or date on your pictures, here’s how to fix this with help from Zoner Photo Studio.
A photographer’s work is hardly over at the end of the shoot. On the contrary, you need to sort, edit, and maybe also share and send the pictures. But even before all that, you need to get them off the camera onto your computer. There are several ways to get photos onto your computer. For example, you can copy them by hand. But much more elegant and efficient is to import them using Zoner Photo Studio.
In our age of digital photographs, you can snap as many pictures as you’d like. So it’s easy to take several pictures in a row to get a higher chance of getting at least one that’s usable. However, you then face a demanding task—picking the best photo out of all these similar ones. But Multi-selections make it easy.
Having your photo files tagged with GPS coordinates is very practical. Not only do they let you know where exactly you took each photo, but also, using a track log you can see the path you took on your trip and how your photos lead across the map.
You might be among the many photographers who completely ignore the possibility of GPS-tagging your photos. “After all,” you tell yourself, “it’s not like I’ll ever forget where I took a picture!” But nobody’s memory is perfect—not even yours. Scout’s honor: can you really find the precise spot where you took a particular picture, say, five years ago?
It may have already happened to you: you needed to quickly find a photo of your parents, or pick the best out of a set of mountain photos. But your pictures were scattered all over your disk, so just browsing normally, you were helpless. And yet, there is something that helps with precisely this job. What is it? It’s keywords! Keyword-tag your photos, and searches like these become a question of seconds.
