How to Create Custom Folders on Canon Rebel T6 1300D?
Whenever you click on a photo using your Canon EOS Rebel T6 DSLR flip screen, a folder will be automatically created on your memory card to store the images. The automatically created default folder is named 100Canon. 102Canon and 103Canon are named in the second and third folders, respectively. There are similar names to each of the folders that are automatically created. A single folder can store up to 9,999 photos at most, after which a second folder is automatically created. But, even if the current folders have not reached the maximum limit, you can even create a folder on your own, as it will help you remember where the specific photos are stored. It will help you to segregate personal photos and work photos by creating separate folders.
To create a new folder, use the cross-navigation key of your Canon Flip Screen DSLR EOS Rebel T6 / 300D in the Setup Menu 1.
Using the cross navigation key and press set, highlight the option. This will create your memory card with a new folder. Before the Canon EOS Rebel T6 / 1300D vlogging camera creates a folder, it will ask for your permission.
Using the right/left navigation key, highlight the ‘OK’ option and then press Set. And if you don’t want to create a folder on your Canon EOS Rebel T6/1300D vlogger camera, highlight the cancel option and press Set.
The folder is automatically named and is set as the active folder. Now, every image you click on using your Canon EOS Rebel T6/1300D DSLR flip screen will be stored in the newly created folder.
Press the Set button after the folder is created, and it will take you back to the Setup menu 1.
If you want to create another folder, go to Setup Menu 1 again and use the same procedure to create another folder.
It is absolutely useful to have a separate folder when you are attending an event, or when you are touring some country. You can segregate images from different sets or locations so that you can rename the folder as per the occasion or the name of the locations when you transfer the image to your computer or any other smart device.
Tip: A few thumbnails will appear on the right-hand side of the folder when you select a folder that has images in it. The thumbnail consists of the first image, along with the last four digits of the filename, stored in the folder. And the thumbnail below, along with its last four digits, will show the last image stored in the folder.
