Organizing photos for your big web project can be difficult and time-consuming. When you need them, it might take hours and you might not even find the one you were looking for. But today, with the right tools and a little time, the process is much easier.
- Organize by page – Create a good folder structure, named according to each page. Any photo you need for that page can live in one location to make it easier.
- Organize by type – If you have a lot of generic photos based around a theme, create a folder per theme. Then, if you ever need more “Smiling Group of People” photos, you know exactly where to look.
- Make sure all people’s bio photos are named – It’s a pain to get 20 images of people without knowing who is who.
- Use intuitive and consistent naming structures Similar to the suggestion above, naming can help later in the process. If you have to do a quick search for something specific, it’s easier to find home-image.jpg rather than image9830.jpg.
- Highlight your favorites – Keep your favorites in a safe place or have a unique character in the name to keep them at the top of your lists.
- Delete unneeded photos – It’s scary deleting things, but if you have bad, outdated, or blurry images, it’s better to remove them from the options.
- Make a separate folder for images ready for web – Keep high-resolution images in one place, and your web-ready images in another. This makes it easy to grab the images you need while building the website.
