If your music library is devolving into an audio jungle, there’s no better time to wrestle back control.
In previous parts of this series on tidying up the chaos that is your (or at least is my) digital photo collection, we reorganised our photo folders and de-duplicated our photo files. Things are going well – we have lovely, date-ordered folders and all of our duplicate photos have been zapped. But we’re not there yet. Dig into the folders, and you’ll still see those annoying, meaningless photo file names generated by digital cameras – DSC1634.jpg? P76376.jpg? Not helpful, when you want to sort those folders in OS X Finder or Windows’ File Explorer. So, we’re heading on a path to automatically rename all of our photo files based on the date the photos were taken. But before we do that, we need to talk EXIF.
