A few years ago I scanned nearly 8000 photos. I have since placed these into multiple Albums in Apple Photos. Now I want to go back and add dates. I need help to develop a strategy for adding dates. Almost all of these will be guesstimates.
For example, If I have a photo that I believe to be from the 1940s , should I just add a date of Jan 1st 1940? And maybe add a keyword “circa” for every picture without the exact date?. If it looks like to was a Christmas picture should I date it Dec 1 or 25, 1940? If it’s summer should I date it June 1, 1940?
Should I add a caption “Uncle Festus - circa 1940s”? The reason I would use captions is because if these were exported to Google Photos (which some family members use) Apple captions will appear as Google descriptions. Google does not use titles nor keywords.
I am interested in hearing how others approach this.
