Organise Your Photos With Windows
Learn how to manage your photos using your Windows PC!
The vast majority of my clients come to me because they are constantly running out of storage across their devices because of their thousands (upon thousands) of photos. It’s just so easy with these wonderful devices to take photos and they seem to multiply rapidly. What’s scary, however, is that in many cases, they’re not sufficiently backed up. This means that the precious images are at significant risk of irretrievable loss.
Do you relate? Is it time for a photo storage system and some good old decluttering?
Let me teach you the very same process and method I use with my VIP clients to transform their photo collection from cluttered and unusable to beautifully sorted and accessible. With just 7 steps you will finally fix that photo mess. You’ll have a deduplicated, organised and backed up photo collection you can easily enjoy within a system that sets you up for future success.
This training has made me feel confident about managing my digital photos. I now know they are safe, they are accessible, and I have a system to deal with all the photos I take in the future.
Chantal’s courses are amazing. She freely shares her extensive knowledge about Photo Organising and is happy to answer any questions you have. When I started Digital Photo Organising I thought I could simply Google what I needed to learn, but there are so many insider tricks and tips that I would never have learnt if I didn’t invest in Chantal’s courses. The information you learn is very in-depth and can at some points seem overwhelming – but Chantal is always happy to go over things again, you can re-watch the class recordings and the FB group helps students discuss and learn from each other.
I signed up to the course as I had started working on my photo collection, but was looking for ways to get more efficient, with the huge task ahead of me. Chantal was very good in answering questions. With ever changing technology, if there was something she was unsure of, she was always able to find it out, and comeback with answers quickly. Extremely happy with the ongoing service Chantal has continued to provide, even after the course has been completed.

About your presenter
My belief is that photographs give us the ability to overcome time and distance, strengthen family ties and even shape identity. I would love to help you experience this for yourself through a well-organised photo collection.
I understand how overwhelming it feels to be drowning in photos. You might be daunted by the technology and worried about losing your photos. I’ve been there too! Not only have I worked intensively in the digital photo management professionally, but of course I have also used a variety of solutions to manage my own photo collection.
Let’s get your photographs sorted together so that you can share them with your family, now and into the future.
What if I can’t join you live?
All sessions are recorded. You’ll have full access to them and can also download them. Of course, it’s most beneficial to be able to join the live meeting but you will still learn enormously from the recordings.
What if I feel I don’t have enough time to do it all?
As mentioned above, the sessions are all recorded and will be made accessible to you. If you fall behind with the work, you can always pick up where you stopped and go back to the sessions. Sometimes, life just happens.
Will you run this course again?
Yes, towards the end of 2021.
Does it matter whether I’m using a desktop computer or a notebook / laptop?
Not at all, it will be exactly the same except from the screen size.
I don’t want to use the cloud – is this a problem?
Not at all and I totally understand that it’s not for everyone. We will cover a range of solutions that don’t depend on the cloud at all.
Does it matter what phone I use?
No, not at all. The majority will probably use an iPhone but we’ll cover Android phones, too.
I have a Mac – will you run a similar course for Mac users?
There is a course for Mac users available and you can find it here.
Why should I take this course and not just ask Google?
- You get one-on-one access to an experienced photo organiser with indepth knowledge about digital photo management.
- Learn from the comfort of your home, yet personalised and tailored to your specific needs.
- You’re not alone! You’ll work with like-minded people and not only get the accountability but the motivation and encouragement, too.
- Windows wants to sell you as much as possible (which is fair, they’re a business after all). I want you to learn how to use their tools and benefit from them in the simplest but most effective way.
- Benefit from the knowledge and expertise I have acquired over time working with many clients using PCs.
- This isn’t just a course full of tips and tricks; it’s a complete step-by-step comprehensive blueprint for photo organising using your already existing Windows environment.
- The course focuses on the latest software, rather than older videos found online that don’t cover newer features and options.
