How to File Your Instructables for Safekeeping

Introduction: How to File Your Instructables for Safekeeping

About: I am an Eagle Scout. I love Hunting, Fishing, Camping, Ropework, Chain Mail, Making things in general, and i love my family.

Have you done an Instructable and needed a place to put all of your photos for each project that you made JUST in case something happened during the writing process of your 'ible?

Well today I am going to teach you how to file your pictures neat and orderly so you dont have to stare at 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 photos just to look for a few that you need.

Step 1: Create Your Primary Folder

Left Click ONCE on a blank area of your compy screen. Now RIGHT CLICK and select "New" and then "Folder". I named my folder " My Instructables" to distinguish it from everything else.

Step 2: Create the Sub-folders

Now create your sub-folders. these are where you will store your Ibles photos. Name them according to your individual how to creat a folder, Make a .BAT file, MSFT Word Simplified, etc.

Step 3: Organize Photos

Now its time for the daunting task...Organization...look through all the photos on your computer, and put the Ibles photos into their respective folders. Sorry for not having a picture of the task of organizing pictures...that was done before i made this 'Ible.

Step 4: Voila!!

Now you have just successfully organized your photos. if something happens to your ible online, you at least have a backup to re-publish the ible instead of freak out that you dont have the photos any more!!
