Based on a poll I recently conducted, the majority of visitors of my gallery (55%) prefer to have it organized by subject alone and do not care about the technique. So I set out to rebuild my gallery accordingly, using subfolders as well to have it better organized. Thus a new structure emerged:

🔷 Tolkien
   🔸 subfolders First Age, Second Age, Third Age, Kings of Gondor, The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings, Songs and Poems, Humour
(subfolders sorted in chronological order of the events (or approximate time a place could be depicted). This was inspired by the way peet organizes his gallery)
🔷 Other Fantasy Art
   🔸 subfolder Centaurs
🔷 Surreal
🔷 Real-world places
   🔸 subfolders Czechia, Slovakia, elsewhere
🔷  History-related
🔷  Heraldry and maps
🔷  Design and Art for Summer Camps
🔷  Photography
🔷  Artisan Crafts
🔷  Work in Progress

I hope this new structure will make my gallery better organized. :-) Though there are still some problems and things I consider and you could help me:

  • What do you think about the names of the folders? Would you suggest any changes?
  • Have I forgotten any area of my work that would deserve a separate folder?
  • Some folders comprise old things and areas of creation which I have not updated for a long time (Photography and Artisan Crafts), but I couldn't bring myself to delete them outright
  • Should all pictures from subfolders be also presented in the parent folder too? Conversely, should all that is currently in a folder be categorized into subfolders if there are some? (I'm thinking about the Other Fantasy Art, where Centaurs is an obvious subfolder, while other pieces are difficult to categorize)

What do you think?
I'll appreciate any suggestions! :dance:

Wow! podle mě moc dobré rozdělení, mám najednou pocit, že tam toho máš dvakrát tolik! Předtím to asi bylo takové moc "schované".
Obzvláště tolkienovská oblast vypadá bohatě a překypuje mnohými detaily - třeba jenom výhledy na místa.
jinak, v historické oblasti bych asi nechala českou korunu jako pevný obrázek u kategorie, vypadá tam vážně dobře a je to krásné dílo!

Díky, tak to jsem rád, že to mělo takový efekt! =D Jo, o pevných obrázkách jsem taky přemýšlel a říkal jsem si, že by to bylo dobré, ale zatím jsem si neujasnil co kam dát, tak díky za tip! :-)

Sounds like a good organization! And I think the names are very good, you know/can imagine what the folder contains by reading it. I also wouldn't delete older stuff, at least it is a nice abstract for yourself, too, unless you feel unwell with some old works. I would kkep the pictures in the parent folder as well...when someone wants to have an insight in all your work / a topic, it would be tiring clicking on each folder to have seen all pieces. Otherwise, people who just want to see your centaures or your works for the First Age of Tolkien, for example, are able to select them.
