If my wealth were counted in pictures, I would be a billionaire. I’ve always loved pictures. My Mother took a lot of pictures. My Father was a photographer, video-grapher and film developer. Several of my maternal Aunts have treasure troves of family photos.
I’ve always tried very hard to write the names of subjects and locations on the backs of the photos. Even with the age of digital photographs, I still enjoy having printed photos and labeling them. With the digital photos it’s also important to “label” them. Another word for labeling digital photos is meta data. According to e Merriam – Webster, “data that provides information about other data”. The picture below is a screen shot of a jpg file with the meta data filled in. When metadata is used correctly, it makes it’s easy to find the jpg files.
I need to re-double my efforts to label physical and digital pictures. My descendants will thank me.
