Google Photo is very useful to manage my reading notes and interesting sections. Once digitalize, I can read everywhere. It also saves space.
While reading, I use sticker post-it to bookmark. After finishing, I use a smart phone to take photos. They will be uploaded to Google Photos automatically . Then, I retouch them, group as an album, and add text to keep notes on desktop computer. Here are steps:
- Select and add photos to a new Album in [Photos] tab.
- Give this album a new name. I use a tag [ebook] to highlight category.
- In album edit mode, use [Add Text] to separate and group sections with a topic.
- Use [Add Text] to drop a note.
- Click on [Done] (a check mark) to finish editing.
- Click on a photo to view. [Shift+r] to rotate if necessary.
- Use [e] key to enter edit mode.
- Click on [Crop & rotate] which is on the upper-right corner to crop. Click [DONE] button to return to photo edit mode.
- Apply [Vista] which is a color filter converting colors to high contrast (gray scale). It’s easier to read text. Click [Done] to finish editing.
- Use [→] key for next and repeat until all done.
