I recently took inventory of my digital photo collection and discovered that I have over 100,000 digital photos stored between my iPhone, my computer, and various external hard drives and flash disks!
Yep, you read that right…over 100,000 digital photos!
I decided that now is the time to tame the beast and get my photo collection under control. (Lord, help me!)
Coming soon to the Victoria Marie YouTube Channel and Blog, I will be sharing my process for managing digital photos and why I made the decision to take less photos than in previous years.
Spoiler Alert: This was not an easy decision! For now, here are a few of my favorite digital photo organization tools. I will come back to these tools in more detail in September.
