Photo Tip Tuesday
The first step to getting your photo life organized is picturing the end result. Just like any goal you need to have a concrete vision with a timeline for completion. ~ The Photo Organizers
First Step: Picture Your End Result
So you want to get your photos organized? That’s nice, but what do you really want to accomplish. You can make the photo organizing process so much simpler if you create a road map for your project. Start at point A and travel to your destination and set a time frame for completion.
Your road map and destination might look something like this:
- Condense 12,000 printed photos. Digitize and archive remaining collection
- Create a simple and sustainable organizational structure for 25,000+ digital photos, with back up systems.
- Convert outdated media to viewable formats.
- Create home movie video albums for each of my kids.
- Create a printed family ‘yearbook’ for each
- Create an online photo sharing archive for my family
Put on your thinking caps and start picturing your end result. It’s the first step to success.
If you need help organizing and preserving your lifetime of photos, videos and keepsakes, find a photo organizer near you at the Association of Personal Photo Organizers.
