How to Create Custom Folders on Canon Rebel T6 1300D?

Whenever you click a photo using your Canon flip screen DSLR EOS Rebel T6, a folder is automatically created in your memory card where the images will be stored.

The default folder, which is created automatically, is named 100Canon. The second and third folders are named 102Canon and 103Canon, respectively.

Each of the folders that are created automatically has similar names. A single folder can store up to a maximum of 9,999 photos, after which a second folder is created automatically.

But you can even create a folder by yourself even if the existing folders haven’t reached the maximum limit, as it will help you to remember where the specific photos are stored.

Creating separate folders will help you to segregate personal photos and work photos.

Step 1.

To create a new folder, go to setup menu 1 using the cross navigation key of your Canon flip screen DSLR EOS Rebel T6 / 300D.

Step 2.

Highlight the option using the cross-navigational key and press set. This will create a new folder on your memory card. Before the Canon vlogging camera EOS Rebel, T6 / 1300D creates a folder, it will ask for your permission.

Step 3.

Highlight the ‘OK’ option using the right/left navigation key and then press Set. And if you don’t want to create a folder on your Canon vlogging camera EOS Rebel T6/1300D, highlight the cancel option and press set.

Step 4.

The folder will be named automatically and will be set as the active folder. Now, every image that you click using your Canon flip screen DSLR EOS Rebel T6/1300D will be stored in the newly created folder.

Step 5.

After the folder is created, press the Set button, and it will take you back to the Setup menu 1.

If you want to create another folder, go to the setup menu 1 one more time and create another folder using the same procedure.

Having a separate folder is utterly helpful when you are attending an event or you are on a tour of some country.

You can segregate the images of different sets or places so that when you are transferring the image to your computer or any other smart device, you can rename the folder as per the occasion or the name of the places.

Tip: When you select a folder that has images in it, a couple of thumbnails will appear on the right-hand side of the folder.

The thumbnail will consist of the first image that is stored in the folder, along with the last four digits of the filename.

And the thumbnail, which is located underneath it, will show the last image that is stored in the folder along with its last four digits.
