Photo Organization

Do you have boxes of photos that you printed and never did anything with?

 

I started Scrapbooking because I realized when you develop or print your photos you look and them and then put them away in a box or drawer, I love how putting them into a scrapbook tells a story for your kids to enjoy later.

So how do you organize them?

Loose Photos (already printed) –

Since I do a lot of Scrapbooking I try to print out my photos of events within 1 or 2 weeks of the event.  When I have them printed I put them in an envelop or one of those containers that have the smaller photo containers that fit inside (photo below)

I try to write on the back of the photos, but that does not always happen.  So when I am ready to scrapbook I just pull out the envelope for that event and use the photos for my page.

 

Digital Photos –

So for my digital photos, I use iphoto and have each event in a folder.  as I print them, I have folders for each  year and add the printed ones to each year and then I back them up to my icloud, I used to put them on a CD but I have so many and it takes up lots of space.

How about you?  How do you organize your photos?  Do you have a similar way?  I would love to hear your ideas!  Share in the comments!

 

Happy Stampin’ and Scrapin’
