I learned from quite a few readers that they resort to photo sorting when they need to find out certain photos. They start sorting directly. The truth is, an occasional photo sort is often less efficient than a well prepared photo organizing. A presort is a good preparation for photo organizing. This post offers a solution on how to presort photos with photo filter.
What is and why doing photo presort?
Imagine this: you are preparing a nice dinner for a family gathering day. You have all the raw food materials at hand: tomatoes, chicken, potato, cucumber, cabbage, onion, pepperoni, flour, eggs, maize, lettuce, celery, salmon, green pepper, fresh ginger, garlic, etc. Also, the pot and fry pan are ready. You are not going to put them into the pot or pan cook directly and cook them RAW, are you? You see my point. Yes, the raw materials need to be pre-processed before they going into to the pot or the pan: you need to peel the garlic and ginger, cut it off, wash the chicken and salmon, and so on.
Although photo presort is not exactly same as food processing, similar to food processing before cooking, photo presort facilitates the later process of photo sorting. The better you presort, the easier the photo organizing process goes.
Major methods of photo presort
The postal and express industry has its ways of presort. Photo presort has its ways too. In general, there are 4 methods.
