Flat, Hierarchical or Virtual Directory Structures?
I always try to avoid hierarchical directory structures for storing photos to keep it as simple as possible.
Well, that doesn’t work all the time… The directory structure on my PC is based on dates and looks like this:
- 2013_01_01 – Place A
- 2013_01_09-12 – Event A
- 2013_01-14 – Event B
- 2014_01_01 – Birthday A
The directory structure on my smartphone is more focused on countries because I travel quite a lot:
- Australia 2015
- Germany 2014
- Denmark 2014
- Spain 2015
- USA and Canada 2014
Wouldn’t it be useful to have additional virtual directories/groups/folders based on date and location or other criteria?
How about a virtual folder “Holiday in Spain 2015” that refers to 10 different real directories (e.g. day 1 in Barcelona, day 2 in Valencia, etc.)?
How do you usually keep your photos organized? It would be very interesting to hear from you.
