Tagging progress…

The great photo organization project continues. I’m not in what you’d call a “habit” yet exactly as far as my daily tagging goes. I’m up to 1,691 old photos tagged (out of 35,349). That’s about 4.7%. That’s progress and I’m happy with that for now. Even at that slow pace I should finish within a year.

Two things:

  1. New photos. I forgot that I would still be adding new photos. So the total number of photos is always increasing. I’m working backwards (I’m back to July 2009 right now). But because I keep adding new photos, it’s like taking two steps forward, one step back.
  2. I’m naming people in my photos. What do you do when a person’s name changes? Do you continue tagging them with the old name so you have continuity? Start tagging with their new name and leave the old tags alone? Or retroactively change the old name to the new name?
