What is Image Archiving and Why is it so Important?

Whether you are a professional photographer or you simply enjoy catching life’s moments, it is essential that you have an effective archiving approach to preserve every memory. 

Image archiving allows you to relive precious memories and preserve your images for future generations to come. There are many options for how to preserve your memories; whether you print your images and store them in photo albums, or use a digital hard drive to access your photos for years to come. In a world that relies on technology, it is vital to have a well established backup method for your images.

At Camera House we offer a range of different storing methods, providing everyone with an individualised solution that works for you.

Tips and Tricks for Image Archiving

Organise your Image Archiving by date or occasion

Organising your images into sub-categories, such as month, year or occasion is the most effective way to manage your image archives. Organising your images by date not only allows for simplicity when locating memories, but it also allows you to look through memories in a periodic manner. A perfect way to spark nostalgia!

Use a naming system when storing photos digitally

A naming system is commonly incorporated amongst professional photographers who have a high volume of images. It allows images to be easily accessed through a simple search. You might create a set of formulas used for each photo, such as ‘month_year_location’ which builds an easily recognisable search description for your images. This is a simple yet effective method for users who need to find their images regularly as it only requires a quick search.

Use the same method consistently when organising your photos

Despite how structured your image archiving system is, it won’t be successful without consistency. The use of various methods will often leave users feeling confused and in turn cause more harm when trying to locate your photos.
