    Hey Paul! Any updates on your digital decluttering project? I really enjoy reading that series and seeing how you’re scanning and organizing your photos. Thanks!

    I finished scanning my old photos two years ago, so that work is pretty much done, at least the heavy lifting. All I have left is a collection of previously scanned photos to go through, sometimes for cropping/editing, but all of it will need at least data-based meta-data.

    Ah ok. What do you using to clean up and edit the meta-data on your photos? The days of software on your computer, like Picasa, are long over.

      Google Photos received an update at some point where it uses image recognition on your photos to locate landmarks and automatically geotag them, photos I took of my Europe trip in 2019 on an RX100 with no GPS are now geotagged by Photos. Pretty amazing tech.

        I might have to give Google Photos a try? My issue is that I have over 250 gigs, something like that of photos. And that doesn’t include the photos everyone has taken with their iPhone. I use OneDrive as back up because I get that 1TB free with a Office365 subscription. That’s such a great deal considering what you get.

      I just use File Explorer for the date.
