I made the mistake years ago of automatically offloading whatever photos were on my phone, that I’d taken, to my computer. They all went in the same folder. They could then go into the iCloud or on a separate memory disk. At the same time, they cleared themselves from my iPhone.
Yes – I was winning at life. Or so I thought.
When I came to retrieve some of those photos, a few months’ later, I had one, big massive file of over 3,000 images all from my phone. This took so long to load, it was agony. I realised in hindsight, I should have taken the time to categorise them at the end of the month. Take it from me, it’s not enough just to store your digital images. So you could organise a folder just for January, February, March and so on, so when you come to want to view a particular event, it’s easy to find and doesn’t take an age to access.
