Overview

Most people are awash in digital photos—some taken, some received—stuffed here and there in random folders and albums across a hard drive. In The Digital Shoebox, Sarah Bay Williams, creator of the image archiving system used by the Academy Awards®, shares her foolproof method for effectively organizing, finding, and sharing photos so you never lose track of your most precious memories.

Unlike many books on digital photography that are driven by software, The Digital Shoebox teaches readers an easy-to-remember and easy-to-repeat system that doesn’t feel like homework or require learning lots of complicated software applications. Part 1 of the book guides readers through the seven most important steps for organizing photos; Part 2 is packed with tips on ways to enjoy and share those photos. Each chapter closes with some slightly more advanced information, should readers want to get "technical."

Based on the author’s experience as photography coordinator for the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, and as someone who simply loves taking photos, The Digital Shoebox is the first concise and user-centered guide solely dedicated to organizing a personal digital photography collection.

  • Takes a fun and easy-to-implement approach to asset management, featuring a friendly writing style and charming illustrations
  • Teaches the seven key steps needed to help users keep photos organized, available, and safe
  • Includes a "Beyond the Box" section at the end of each chapter for more advanced readers who want to move beyond the basics
