Re: Simplest & Best Way For Extended Family To View/Comment On Digital Photos? #general

In terms of labeling photos, I have always started photos with the date, and then a description of at least who was in the photo. For example, if I knew that a photo was taken on the date of my grandparents’ wedding, I would label it 1915-09-05-wedding-(my grandparents’ names). That way, all photos sort chronologically. If I only know the year or month, that’s how I would start the name of the file (e.g., 1915- or 1915-09-). If I was unsure of the date, but making a likely guess, I would note the year followed by a “ca” for circa (e.g., “1915ca”), which puts it in a certain chronological order as well. I use Dropbox to share photos (and other files) with family, but that doesn’t allow for comments per your suggestion, which is a great idea.

All the best,
