Most of us have old family photos stored in cardboard boxes that never see the light of day. Sure, a few of them are in albums, but those sticky pages become not so sticky as the years go by. Eventually your beloved photos will fall out and get lost.
Now that most everyone has digital cameras, Android phones, or iPhones, our memory cards and computers have become the modern day cardboard box. How many of us have memory cards full of photos that are stuffed in a drawer somewhere or have photo files stored on our computers?
It's a shame to keep family members trapped inside this photographic purgatory. They deserve to be front and center so they can be easily viewed. Let everyone get to know your Uncle Joe, Aunt Shirley, or even your favorite pet.
A few years ago scrapbooking became the hot new hobby. I'm a crafty person, but I could never get into it. I don't always have a lot of spare time, and it just seemed like a lot of work.
However, I discovered photo booking. I could upload my pictures to my computer and make a whole book in the time it would take me to make a few scrapbook pages.
My vacation and family photos have become actual books that I can share and even give as gifts. Instead of standing there, explaining each picture to someone, I can write captions in my book that tells my story.
Learn why you should make a photo book, and which photo book making websites are cheapest, have the most versatility, and even allows you to sell your finished product.
I know. Me too. There's never enough time LOL
This is something I still need to get around to doing.
That's the problem. I'm so behind!
I have hundreds - perhaps thousands - of photos I've taken over the years. Some are in albums, while others are just stuffed in bags and drawers. I recently learned about photobooks, and think they are great! Now, if I can just find the time & money to create some!
I'm pinning this one to our new Wizzley group writer's board.
You're welcome! You sound like me Mira. I take pictures ALL the time lol
I have many photo albums from the time when I used to shoot on film. I think photo books are a great idea -- only I will need to do some serious sifting, as I now take way more photos (and I took a lot back in the day, too).
I made an album for a friend once. It could be a nice gift. I know my aunt asked me for some photos of her nephews. I might do this for her. Thanks for the idea :)
Old photos can be fascinating
