Here we are at the end of another Year- where did it go? Like many of you I have been out collecting photos and images… going here and there and wow now I am at the end of the year and I have so many photos stuck on hard drives, up on a cloud and still on a memory card or stick somewhere… not to mention all of the old photos ….
It is time to give these images some LOVE and it is time to Care for your Photos if you have not already.
As technology continues to change at lightning speed- looking at these gems- family photos-travels photos and other images we have collected will quickly become a challenge as well- if you forget you have stored images to a cloud site, no one else probably knows they are there either.
Printing and creating physical items with your images is the best way to Care for your photographs and “share the love”. What better time to do this than now-at the holidays!
Caring for your photographs:
1. Make a photo book – a souvenir of your travels or a book of the family from the past year or a book of photos from a milestone event such as a wedding, graduation or new baby!
2. Make prints- yes this old school BUT without photos printed, years from now no one may be able to read them off your hard drive, get them off a cloud or have a device to look at them from a cd or memory card.
3. A large image for your home or office- enlarge one of your favorite images to hang in your home or office and enjoy it everyday!
