Every one of us using smartphones has no less than a thousand photos (including myself). However, they must all be lying in different folders jumbled up and mixed up. This guide will help you to sort photos by date and organize them into various folders using Systweak Photo Organizer. This application is one of the best ways to organize photos and sort them by days, months, and years.
How Does a Photo Organizer Work?
You may not be aware of the fact that when you click a photo there is more to what meets the eye. You can see the image as a result of what you clicked but in reality, there is a whole bunch of information that is being recorded along with the image. This data is called metadata and consists of the date and time when the photo was clicked along with the device details and geolocation coordinates if the device has a navigation feature turned on.
In other words, when you click a photo with your smartphone and your Internet and Location turned on, it would be easy to identify when and where the image was clicked without even looking once at the photo. This is not magic but can be done with the help of another app known as Photo Exif Editor that helps users to obtain all the data stored while the image is clicked.
Systweak Photo Organizer used the same metadata stored along with the photos and sorts photos by date into various folders based on day, month, and year.

And with a few mouse clicks, you have finally reduced the mammoth task of organizing your photos into different folders sorted by day, month, and year.
The Final On How To Sort Photos By Date Using Photo Organizer?
The Systweak Photo Organizer is an amazing application that can work wonders on your Photo Collection because sorting a thousand+ photos is nothing short of a miracle. There is one limitation, however, that it works only on metadata provided. If you notice the above folder image, you will find a folder by the name “Unknown Date taken” which means any image that does not have the required metadata information will be placed into that folder. This is only true for limited photos only that you have downloaded on the internet or received from a friend who has purposefully edited the metadata for some reason or another.
