It can be hard to keep track and store all of your church’s photos without getting confused where you put them all. All the events, the photographers, the people in your photos, it’s hard to keep up with all of them. Especially when you’re looking for one specific image out of thousands that are in your drive, it could take a little while before you find it. 

Chances are your growing collection of church media could be organized better. Luckily, you’ve come to the right place! Here are some ideas that you could arrange your photos efficiently!

Date

One super easy way to organize is by date. Most of the time, you will almost always know when things are shot. It can sometimes be harder to figure out who shot it or what it might have been named. So if you organize by date then it provides you with a quick way to access photos.

Events

Keep all photos together based on events. If anyone sends you photos from that event, put them in the event folder. You should also have a folder for photos around the facility, one for staff, commissions, each Sunday school class, etc. If you have more than one campus, you can organize by listing campus-year-event name. You can also create separate folders for worship photos like Easter, Christmas Eve, etc.

Utilize to Organize

One platform medium to use when organizing photos is Fluro Photos. It is specifically built to for this exact purpose. It provides you with a great place to store all of your photos, and provides easy access to them. Instead of them being scattered through hard drives, you can now have them all in one place. Fluro Photos makes it really easy for you to find what you are looking for, and you can even tag photos with certain things and link photos to certain events and have separate logins for each photographer with permission to what they can access.

Closing Thoughts

Our jobs as church communicators can be tedious and time-consuming. It requires a lot of effort from us, that is why we have to utilize resources that make our job much more efficient. Organizing our church media makes it easier for us to make our resources readily available, and we hope these solutions could help improve your church’s photo management.
