How a timeline can help with photo organising

As we are organising photos, we usually like to know what happened when. There is a whole range of information we can gather during that process that can help us to date or place photos. This applies to printed and digital photos. 

A great tool to help us gather that information that sometimes randomly comes up during the sorting is a timeline.

Some options to record a timeline are:

  • A simple note book
  • Index cards 
  • One sheet per year in a binder
  • An Excel sheet
  • A bubble chart
