Get random photos.. I needed to optimise my photos because they were taking up too much memory. So I optimised and deleted 450 originals. The only problem is you get a random selection that is out of order when you go back in your gallery. This set of plant saucers came up as recent! Filled with water and set in a slight slope the birds seem to like them. Memory saved? About 950 megabytes!
When you have over 8000 photos on your phone it’s time to downsize. I decided to use a cleaning app and optimise my images. I’ve done a few hundred before, but feeling optimistic I decided to do 4000!
Mistake. I decided to delete the originals as a lot of them are megabit or high kilobits sizes. Plus I don’t really want to store things on the cloud. It started well, but I found that sometimes I’m getting messages ‘could not delete, please try again’. I’m going back in months, and sometimes the black deleted files are in blocks, other times in a checkerboard pattern. It reminds me of defragging my computer years ago.. Does anyone even do that anymore?
Anyway, back to work…
