Question Photo Organization Dilemma.

I’ve been taking photos for years and dumping them into one file on Photo Bucket, but now the file is so large that I’m having trouble finding stuff. I want to organize them, but I now have a problem. I have multiple threads at multiple forums using the same photo link and now I can’t remember where I posted them all to change the link.

I wouldn’t worry about the older threads except that they keep popping up years later.

Should I just go ahead and organize them and only try to edit the links that I do remember?

Leave the original bucket intact....Take a copy and organise that.

With over 7,000 photos in my various internal and external hard drives (with up to 4 copies of some of them), I can see your dilemma.

My current pet bug is that every time you buy a new camera, that company's software tries to take over as default reader when you connect the camera or card reader to the computer.

How many photos can are you able to store in photo bucket and is there a time limit? This would make it easier to link to posts.

Hi James, I'm not sure. At first I would up load them full size then I started making the smaller. I did it because a lot of people still had dial-up and it was taking too long for them to load.

I have a LOT of photos and some i would just like to delete because I only had them illustrate a question or something that I was doing at the time.

Hi Johnny, I may have misunderstood your first post. I was assuming you downloaded ALL your photos to Photo bucket instead of storing them on your HD.

PS thanks for the tip, Ray.

I'm not sure this will answer your question, but this is what I did. I ran into this problem some time ago. So I started making a separate folder for each category. A sub-album for personal (family photos and the like), completed projects, jigs and fixtures, general woodworking, etc. Name them whatever you like and something easy to remember when you start to look for a particular photo. For example, if you made and end table, you might want to put it in a sub-album titled "furniture". Or an adirondack chair or bird house might be in "outdoor projects".

I would go ahead and reorganize them now before you get overwhelmed with photos and edit the links that you remember. It's not going to get any better. Don't worry about those that are posted in various forums. If someone clicks on a link that don't work, and they really want to see it, they will usually post a reply that a link don't work. When they do, you can edit the link then.

Hope this helps.

Jim

Thanks Jim,
I tried searching for posted links, but I guess embedded stuff doesn’t show up in the search. It’s too bad because I could have searched for the photo link and changed it.

Ok well I made a new file for my router table photos and moved a couple, then I just found out I cannot edit my posts with the new link after 7 days, so Iím stuck.

Oh well, I guess Iím just going to have to use Paulís idea of making copies. Iím just worried that with all the photos that I have Iíll run out of free space on PhotoBucket.
