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:
🔸 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
🔷 Real-world places
🔸 subfolders Czechia, Slovakia, elsewhere
🔷 Heraldry and maps
🔷 Design and Art for Summer Camps
🔷 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!
