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!
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.
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.
