Reader-Submitted Picture Organization Tips
- older photo albums are not, and can cause your precious pictures fade and yellow. Buy and use only acid-free albums and sleeves!
- There are many companies that will take all of your old photos and put them onto a photo CD for you to peruse, copy, print, and edit at your leisure.
The process doesn’t harm your originals and gives you a storage medium that will preserve them forever.
- I like to arrange all of my albums by either the event that the pictures were taken at (a wedding album for example), or by the person/people the pictures are of.
- There are many free online sites like Flickr that will let you upload all of your digital prints, organize them into albums, write captions on them, or notes about them and then share them with friends and family.
