If you take an average of 3 phone photos a day, that’s over 1,000 photos a year to sort!
Wow, who has time to sort them all at once?!

If you do these 3 tips regularly, you’ll always keep up and never have to do a big sort again!

  3 Tips to Organize Your Phone Photos

Do these 3 tips right from the start and you’ll never have to scroll through hundreds of photos to find the one you want. After all “Photo Clutter” is as bad as paper clutter and means you didn’t follow the tip to “Save your best and let go of the rest.” Here’s 3 ways to do that…

1. Sort like an Eye Doctor

Your eye doctor gives you an exam by showing you two images and asking, “Is 1 better or is 2 better?” Ask the same question with your photos after an event and you’ll easily narrow down to the “Best” one to keep of the same shot.

For instance when you go out with friends and ask the waiter to snap a picture, he/she shoots and says “Oh, just one more to make sure I got it right.” Sure enough you instantly have six photos of the same group of people, when you only wanted one. So …

When you’re home select the one photo with the question “Is 1 better or is 2?” Then choose the best facial expressions on the most people and best background. Keep that one and immediately delete the rest. Don’t do double work later by not deciding right then. Trust yourself and decide.

2. Use the Smile Test
Each night of a special photo day go through your photos not only to relive the day, but also to select the best and let go of the rest. If a photo makes you smile, that’s a “Keeper” and you can click a “heart” at the bottom of the screen to signify it. That makes it easy to choose your Christmas Card Photo or have them in your “Favorites” folder.

3. “Share the Best!” A Time-Saver Tip

I love taking group pictures at an event, but someone will inevitably ask, “Can you send me that picture?” Ah, you don’t want to have add that to a To Do List so do it right on the spot. Ask if they want text, email, or Air Drop? Then send it. They’re happy and you’ll be happy the photo is shared!

Be a 1 Minute Photo Manager and you’ll always have just your favorites on your phone!
