I’ve partnered up with technology lifestyle expert Carley Knobloch, from Digitwirl, to bring you some fun yet informative videos on various products and services related to technology that will help you get organized and simplify your busy life.
I shudder just talking about photo organization (although I have). What a dilemma it can be and oh so frustrating to stay on top of. Mine are organized and backed up by the year and I simply enjoy them on our digital picture frame now. I no longer print them all off although I do occasionally create photobooks for special occasions. All those years I diligently printed pictures off and put them into albums and now have to store somewhere. Gosh they take up so much space sitting in the closet. I really love having the digital picture frame because it takes up no space at all and can be enjoyed all day long.
Today’s Twirl is another great one from Carley that I’d never heard of with regards to getting the most out of your pictures. It sounds intriguing. I’d love to know if anyone else has tried it out. Let me know what you think.
Notes from Carley:
Opening a shoebox of old photographs is like unlocking the door to your personal history, flooding your senses with the moments (and the occasional misguided outfit) that shaped who you are. That’s assuming, of course, that you can find the shoebox somewhere in the depths of your garage. Or it’s not in your great aunt’s closet. Oooor, it hasn’t been lost to a flood in your basement. Our precious memories deserve better than this, don’t they? Don’t we all want to honor our old family photos, especially ones of friends and relatives who are no longer with us?
Time to bring your past into the present. 1000memories wants to help you get your photos out of shoeboxes and help you scan, organize and share them with your family and friends. Think of it like a “Facebook for yesteryear”— scan and upload your pics, then date and tag them with the names. Add stories, audio, video and memorable quotes too, and 1000memories will arrange it all in a beautiful layout for each family member, so you can string together your family history and everyone can upload their own personal collections.
