Organise your image library with help from the Photos app
Your guide Ian Evenden says… “It’s easy to sort a large collection of images using Windows 10’s built-in Photos app”
With modern digital cameras, it’s easy to take a lot of photos. It’s not like you’re wasting film, after all, and with memory cards of up to 128GB easily available and reusable, you can come back from holiday with a bulging collection of images that will need organising and sorting through. That’s where organising software comes in. Being able to arrange your images, even if it’s just by date, into a coherent collection is important if you want to be able to find your photos as your collection grows.
Apps are available to help you, one of the best being Adobe’s Photoshop Elements, which bundles an image editing program with a standalone Organizer that takes a lot of the effort out of organisation, including GPS tagging and face recognition. The Photos app in Windows may be less sophisticated, but it can still make your photos easy to navigate.
