I’ve cycled through tons of photo apps and found little more than bloated software with excessive features I didn’t need. They filled up my hard drive, used excessive CPU cycles, and didn’t deliver the promise of organizing my photos with ease. Rather than continue on a pointless path, I took a step back, organized my photos with Dropbox, and solved all my problems. You can, too. All I wanted was quick access to my photo collection and an easy way to get it on the internet to share with others. The simplest option turned out best: I came up with an organization scheme, stuck it in Dropbox, and used third-party tools to automatically handle any more complex operations like photo resizing. It requires hardly any work to set up. You can free yourself of photo management software in just three steps.
