Rely on metadata in photos for location and date, then upload all to Google photos. Job done. But I do only photograph with my phone, so if I had a camera too not sure how I'd handle that. I'd probably just bulk upload once in a while and then not bother organising.

Then turn on face recognition and you can search all your photos for people, b or combination of people etc.

No point organising in folders etc, just let Google handle it! If I want specific photos grouped just use Google photos to create albums

I fully support the 'never organise' approach. Google Photos is also good at automatically archiving screenshots and the like.

The face matching is great. Though when I set it up I had to pretend to be in the US via a VPN for about 5 minutes as it wouldn't initialise in the UK at the time. Don't know if that's changed or not.

The face matching is quite remarkable - it can tell the difference between my four boys as babies accurately (verifiable from the photo dates) when I've not got a clue who they are!

Got something to say?
