Our life is full of surprises and special many days and times, which has to be remembered. Its clearly a good thing for people to be able to take as many photographs as they like. Photograph is more than just a picture, it is a memory of a moment in time this captured forever to be brought out and enjoyed every moment and over again. Photo album filled with photographs and memorabilia of life and family of the past, as a legacy for all future generations to come. They remind us of happy or significant moments in our lives. It’s fun to look back at old photos and remember good times. The creation can have a two fold effect- filling, you with vivid memories (while creating it), and sharing ‘those memories’-with family members now and with those who may not as yet been born. It’s always nice to be able to turn the pages, and keep them on the coffee table or wherever, so other people can look at them too.
Now that almost everyone either uses a digital camera or takes pictures on their cell phone, it’s a lot less common to get photos developed. Instead, we store them on our computers, or leave them in our phones. But if you don’t put your photos in an album, will you look back at them at all?
Arranging pictures in a photo album can be a daunting task. If you’ve ever decided to reorganize your photo collection, you know that tons of photos and lots of empty pages do not equal an easy job!
You can store them very simply. Or you can be elaborate. Just don’t be stressed about it. Enjoy them, let them make you happy, and have fun with them. The key to making this task simple is to choose an organizational method for your photos that can be used consistently, let’s look at how to organize photos in a way that really works for you (and actually DO it!):
First of all round up your photos in one place. You’ve probably got them stashed in drawers, some in albums, some in the basement…get them all in one place so you can see what you’ve got. In regards to photos that are stored in your computer you need to take your time to sit down at your computer and create a “best of” folder. Then once you’ve whiddled the photos down, put them in the order you’d like them to appear. This way, when you send the files off to be printed, they will be returned to you in order… all set to go into the album.
Toss as many as you can as you go, sorting by person, year, event, or location. For speedy sorting, sort into piles, large envelopes, a plastic bin or recipe box with tabs that you can label. You can just pick your best photos, instead of the 450 photos you took from your vacation, you can just pick 50 of them and arrange them artfully.
