Organizing Your Photos

Everyone has family photos. Especially if you have children, you probably have tons of photos but not much time to get them organized the way you like. Life gets in the way. Here’s a few things to think about before you start. Sort backlogs of photos by collecting show boxes or plastic containers and write a year on each one. Sort photos into their correct year. This can be done in brief sessions – even twenty minutes a night will make a big difference by the end of the week. Along the way eliminate any ugly photos, blurry images and duplicates. Once the pictures are sorted by year, decide how you want to sort them further. By event? By theme? Chronologically? Then you can choose how you want to show and/or display them. You will have a better idea of what size box, album or frames you’ll need. Good luck and let me know how it’s going!

    I gave my daughter some beautiful frames that hold 4 to 6 pictures and she took the pictures that she liked (that she actually photographed) and put them on her bedroom walls. She has her own photo album and we also scrapbook our pictures. I have sorted my pictures in clear plastic envelopes so I can see what I am sorting and they go in a larger box with a lid.
    Thanks for the ideas.

    That’s a great idea to turn your photos into art for your daughter’s room! Do you sort your photos by themes or otherwise?
