Adobe offers a free tool for managing your digital files, including photos. This product can be used independently of Adobe’s Creative Cloud suite. Adobe Bridge, one of the best programs for organizing photos, lets you add tags, notes and other metadata to your shots. It also lets you sort multiple photos simultaneously. This manager centralizes access to your files and lets you add watermarks. It also makes it easy to publish directly to Adobe Portfolio.
Google Photo (free)
Google‘s backup and sync tool is a good free alternative to Mylio since it also helps organize photos. This cloud program automatically backs up your image folders. You choose which folders to upload, and they are then backed up and synchronized autonomously. Once the files have been uploaded, they are sorted chronologically. Google’s artificial intelligence structures them further, even suggesting which images could be archived.
