How to track a specific series of photos?
January 9, 2014 2:57 PM Subscribe
How can I best track photos of a medical issue, to see changes over time? The photos need to be taken many times a day, and easily compiled so I can see the variation between them. They should not be public, but ideally I'd like to share the photos with my doctors. The photos need to be time stamped, or the resulting archive needs to make the times and dates clear. The process should be as simple and fast, as it will be repeated 6x a day or more. Any ideas on how to make this as painless as possible?

The photos are taken on an iPhone and/or laptop camera. If possible I'd like to be able to use both methods, as sometimes I'm at the computer and it will be easier. But if it's iPhone only (i.e. private Instagram account?) it's not completely out of the running. One idea I had was to send the photos to a private Flickr account, but the Flickr redesign is so horrible that I'm loathe to figure it out at the moment.
I'll purchase any app or account to make this as easy as possible. I've used a few medical tracking apps in the past and wasn't that impressed with them. Some of them allow you to add a photo a day, but I'll need to add many photos a day, so that won't work.
I'd like to be able to see most of the photos at once, or at least a few days at a time, so just emailing them to a common email address one at a time won't be the best solution. The goal isn't just storing them, it's to be able to compare differences between the photos, and know when they were taken.
Thanks for any suggestions.
