Organize Your Images
The shoebox full of old photos has been replaced by a data-hogging digital folder of images and video clips documenting soccer games, breakfasts and selfies. And both are still just as unorganized as ever. Since January is National Clean Up Your Computer Month, it’s time to tackle the 10 jillion megabytes of images you have in 52 file locations.
Google Photos and Apple’s iCloud have made great use of artificial intelligence to help you organize, store and identify your photo memories. They’ll also help you create collages, videos and other sharable memory multimedia. You can search by date, location, person and even objects.
ACDSee’s name makes me the most nostalgic, but its functionality is top notch. Although it’s primarily made for professionals, ACDSee has a plan for individuals that lets you store, manage and edit images and video. It will pull all your images together to help you find duplicates, plus let you batch convert images from one format to another and much more.
