Photos are a great way to document the memories of our family and friends. However, when we have hundreds or more photos scattered around the house it can be difficult to find that one photo you’re looking for.
If you’re like me, you’ve accumulated a pile of family photos. You may have them in albums or frames, but there are always some that are left behind. This blog post will help you organize those family pictures and make it easier to find the one you want when you really need it!
1. Sort photos into categories
This is a great way to start organizing your family photos. Choose categories that are easy for you and then find the best place in your home to display them. For example, if you have pictures of yourself as a child with both parents, organize these by height so they’re easier to find later on when looking back at old memories or reminis
2. Create a photo book to display your favorite memories
Creating a photo book is a really great way to keep your memories close and organized. You can have family members help you by taking turns putting photos in the book, or you could create it all on your own. If you want to make sure there are no duplicates of images within the album, try using this photo organization system:
- Put each year at the start
- Label each picture with who is in it
3. Make an album for each family member that includes their best pictures and the story of how they were taken
Making an album for each family member is a great way to make sure that you don’t lose any memories of your loved ones. It’s also the perfect opportunity to tell their story and why they’re so special. If there are some people in this person’s life who might not be around anymore, like grandparents or other relatives, include them as well!
4. Create digital albums with all the photos from your phone or computer so you can share them on social media sites like Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest
It’s a lot harder to keep track of all your memories when they’re scattered around different devices. I have my laptop, and then there are pictures on my phone that aren’t synced with the cloud either! Make an album for each family member by creating digital albums with all their photos from Facebook or Instagram so you can share them online.
5. Print out some of your favorite pictures to hang up in frames around the house
Print out your family favorite to hang in frames and on the refrigerator. This is a great way to show off the pictures without having them cluttering up your device.
Hang the best of the best in frames on the wall for all to see!
6. Find a place to store your photos – you can use an old shoebox, create a photo album, or get a digital photo frame
Long term storage of family photos is important. As TVs and computers get thinner, the thickness of a shoebox is perfect for storing photos. You can also buy photo albums or use an old-fashioned photo frame to show off your favorite pictures.
7. Organize your photos by year and event type (birthdays, holidays)
One of the best ways to organize photos is by year and event type. This will help you know which photos to share on social media and create a beautiful album.
Organize your photos by year or event type! There are several ways of doing this, including hanging in frames and on the refrigerator. This is a great way to show off the pictures without having them cluttering up your device.
8. Create folders for each family member so that they have their own section of the photo storage space
If you are storing photos digitally, in a shoe box or in photo albums create a folder for each family member. This will ensure that you are not going to delete any important photos from your photo storage space.
9. Make sure to label everything clearly with a permanent marker so that you know what’s inside each folder
If you have a shoe box or photo album, make sure the contents are labeled. This will help eliminate any confusion when it comes time to find that specific picture.
