A new year is a time for resolutions. “I am going to lose weight”, “I am going to be a better person”. My resolution, to make sure people share their memories. I am going to do everything I can to make sure that the importance of memory preservation is heard and understood. So I am starting off January with letting everybody know that organization and preservation of all of the memories doesn’t have to be so daunting.
Pictures are wonderful. They are a great way to preserve our memories. Before the digital age we had to have pictures printed and once they are gone they are gone. One of the very special things about those “old” pictures. With the digital age the number of pictures has grown, taking some of the importance with it. The importance of getting that “perfect” shot isn’t there anymore because you are not wasting a picture that’s on your roll of film. Now you can just delete it an start again. So now, there are thousands of pictures to sort through instead of hundreds.
Sorting through pictures seems to be a very daunting task, one that most people will say “I will get to it later” pretty soon you are 3 years behind and now frustration mounts so high that nothing ever gets done.
So, in 2013, it’s time to get organized, make the thought of sorting and organizing pictures not be something that you “have” to do, but something that you “want” to do. Make it a family project share the stories that the pictures tell.
1 Picture is still worth 1000 words whether it’s printed or digital.
Some tools to help you get those photos organized…
- Photo boxes – Need to be sure these are PHOTO SAFE and ACID Free. If they aren’t the pictures will yellow and color will distort
- Software – Organizing in folders on your computer works well, but what about having software that will let you organize by media date, has photo recognition, and lets you do all of the editing that you need?
Getting started with Organization is easy with the Organization Top Pick from Creative Memories. Click on the picture below to go directly to my website. For $69 you get a Power Sort Box, Power Sort Compartment Box Dividers (Set of 12 Additional dividers) and Memory Manager 4.0 Software. If these items were purchased separately it would come out to $84.
Creative Memories prides itself on having high quality product because photos are the roots of the business. Memories are preserved through our photos and having them accessible is a great gift for all members of your family.
