Whoa as in “please stop horse”
Or wow Or whoa is me or OY
Ah… still diminishing my stockpile of digital photos.
1. 75% reduction and still reducing
2. Freed up lots of space on my computer.
3. Backing up photos is a good idea, when you have a plan. (I obviously did not have a plan until now. )
4. Sitting at the computer has actually been good for my low back and giving me more upper body strength, but my neck…. Oy
The app found thousands to trash
I hope I have learned my lesson to cull as I go and backup as I go so that I don’t have another mess like the one I created over the last ten years. Here is what I have been doing:
First two weeks-
First a myriad of duplicates destroyed
Imported the remaining into the library
The duplicate/similar program choked
Many photos had same name, but different photos from different cameras
Sorted photos by camera
Exported photos (eight groups)
Searches for duplicates in each group
Third week (this one) Culling and more deletions.
One group almost done with first round.
This project of just photos will take another month or more depending on the time I can endure sitting at the computer.
I am finding lots of smiles and deleting the frowns. 😃
On this day
Sisters-in-law entered hospice
Father-in-law entered care home
Auntie stayed in house alone
A very difficult summer
Memories are sad
Sadness all encompassing
Their spirits are felt
May they continue to RIP!
