To sort a lot of existing Photos

Post by bnwgraaf » Sun Jul 01, 2018 11:04 pm

I am planning to buy me a NAS, mostly for photos and music.
It will be a Synology or Qnap, but at the moment I prefer the Qnap.

To be sure, I am testing with the live Photo Station demo. Most things became clear now, but I am wondering one thing.

If I have bought a NAS, all my existing photos will be copied over to this NAS. After that I will have to do some work: editing some tags and metadata and create Albums to put the photos in.
If I put several photos over to some albums, is it than easy to show only the photos which are still in no album? In that way it will be easier to put all the left photos in an album.

Another question: Am I right that albums are virtual, so all the photos stay in the album where they are uploaded? Will they stay in one big album, or is it possible/better to create subfolders (automatically)?

why don't you just use the nas as storage space and continue to use whatever viewer/editor you have tight now?

that way the brand does not matter and you can keep the almost exact workflow

also don't forget to do regular backups of your nas

Easy as a breeze

yes, the albums are virutal, all the photos will be in the folder where they are uploaded and one photo can show up in multiple albums without duplicating files.
