Sort them in groups the best that you can break them down.  Sort by colors. Learn types or style. Patch-swirl-corkscrew-ribbon- patch & ribbon-etc.  Learn difference between handmade and machine made.  The you can start sorting.  Value always depends on condition.  Be prepared to spend lots of time. Not every marble can be identified, or 100% to one maker or company alone.

Or use Paint if it shows as an "open" option when you right-click on the picture in your folder on the computer.

As a semi newbie myself.3 years into it. Books can get the thinking process started . Then eventually become a hindrance as they only show the best of the best examples. I would say look at each marble closely and try and learn moderns.
