Organising your Printed Photos and Albums

Sorting and organising your printed photos and photo albums could take a few hours or a few days, depending on how many photos you have. Follow these organising suggestions that will keep your memories safe.

I will discuss Sorting your Digital Photos in my next blog.

  • Collect all your photos and photo albums, and place them on a table.
  • Remove all photos from your existing photo albums, unless an album makes you feel happy.
  • Only keep the photos, which create joy and where you and others look good.
  • If you have lots of photos of a specific event, then select the best ones.
  • Let go of bad quality photos or similar ones.
  • Categorise the photos by year or events.
  • Place a note with a description and date with each pile.
  • Tie up each pile with a thin ribbon or rope. Otherwise, use plastic sleeves and place each year in a separate sleeve.
  • Store the photos upright in a box. Create card dividers for each year or event to create a better overlook.
  • If you want to digitalise photos, scan them in and save them on an external hard drive with your other photos.
  • You can also create a photo book with the digital photos. Photo books have replaced photo albums and make great gifts for special occasions and birthdays.
  • Last but not least store your camera and lenses together. Ideally use a camera bag.
