You might be known for your organizational skills. Your neat and tidy closet sings the glory of how organized and managed things are in your life. But what if your PC isn’t as organized as everything else in your life?
Now when you originally purchased your PC, you might have organized all your files in order, but with time, things might start getting messy. Not anymore! Let’s start with managing all your digital images. Yes, we know it might be a little boring, but if you want to organize everything on your PC, you have to devote some time and energy to it.
Here are some steps that can help you manage all your images and organize them like a pro. Let’s take a look at them.
Create online backup
Imagine this, you went on an exotic vacation, and somehow you managed to delete all the pictures. Wouldn’t that be extremely heartbreaking? Obviously yes. No one likes to lose their precious photos. Right?
According to prominent technical experts, since people cannot have hard copies of all the pictures they own, digital images should be protected and safeguarded like gold.
Traditionally, people used to have bulky hard drives where they stored their files and all the data they owned. Also, they had to carry those hard drives everywhere. But that’s not the case today. Thanks to online drives, you now have the option to digitize your pictures and use online drives to keep them safe. Maintaining an online backup of the photographs is prioritized by every user since it is the practical and convenient option to store and access pictures and other media files.
For this, you need to sign up for an online drive such as iCloud and use the internet to back up whatever you want. The best part of using online storage drives is that you don’t have to carry bulky devices around with you. Yes, you read that right. With the help of your id and password, the files can be accessed from any device with an internet connection. These fantastic storage options offer ultimate safety mechanisms that protect the user’s data against potential threats. That’s a relief!
Additionally, whenever you accidentally delete any important picture from your local device, you won’t need to get panic because the file can be retrieved through the online backup you just created.
Delete all the duplicate pictures
Did you know that half of your disk drive is filled with duplicate pictures? Yes, you read that right. No matter how much you try, your computer generates some automatic duplicate files that need to be deleted regularly. This means that if you find your PC running slow, such files are responsible for it.
In fact, such files mess up with the operating system and end up hindering the productivity of the user. And the worst part of having these files on the local system is that over time they tend to multiply themselves and at a certain point it gets a bit tough to distinguish between files you need and the ones that you don’t. That’s definitely frustrating and annoying.
Also, if you think that uploading pictures on iCloud can help you get rid of duplicate files, then you can’t be more wrong. iCloud is definitely a great way to keep the clutter off your Apple devices, but since everything is synced with each other, duplicate files may find their way to your online storage. Fortunately, there are tools and steps that can help you get rid of all the duplicate images on your iCloud and make up some space for your other files instantly. After this, you won’t have to see similar pictures again. That’s indeed a relief.
Categorize your pictures and make folders for everything
After you get rid of all the unnecessary pictures, you need to classify images according to date or event and move them to different folders. For example, suppose you went to Florida for a vacation, then you need to put those images in a folder named “Vacation” and a subfolder named “Florida.” This way, whenever you’ll need a specific picture, you can easily find it in a particular folder.
Now, what if there are few pictures that you really really like, and every time you want to look at them, you end up confronting a million others. Thankfully, there is an amazing option in your Mac that lets you mark some pictures favorite . It will not only save so much of your precious time but will also help you manage your photo library. For this, you just need to select the image you like and click on the “heart” icon in the bar. After that, you just need to click on “Favorite,” and you are all done.
Now, next time you want to upload your favorite picture, you don’t have to scroll for it a million times. Isn’t that easy peasy lemon squeezy?
After you are done with organizing your images, you’ll notice that your PC is much faster, and the experience is seamless. So, what are you waiting for? Go and get those pictures organized ASAP!
