Organize 1000's Of Photos Easily


The easiest way is to start right from the beginning, your pregnancy. Chronological order is an easy way to organize your photos, that's if you remembered to write all the dates down.

If you're like me, you didn't exactly start out that way. So here are some tips to get your photos organized and ready for scrapbooking.

THE DATE!

The date may not seem urgent for you to write out because you may think that you will easily remember what "month" your baby was at in the pictures.

But when they hit 4 or 5 months old, it can be hard to determine which month they're in.

So.....As soon as you pick up your pictures from the developer go home and write the date (if you have a photo safe pencil) on the back of each picture.

Or you could get on the computer and type all the details out onto labels and put that on the back of each picture. Also make a label for each negative too.

STORAGE

Take your photos OUT of the envelope they came in and put them into a storage box or file folder.

A great way to store your negatives is to put them into a storage sheet and into a binder. This way all your negatives are stored together, safely, and out of the way.

STAYING ORGANIZED

A great way to stay organized and up to date is to take at least 1 roll of film of the baby each month.

This way the next time you go grocery shopping just drop the film in and pick it up on your way out, quick & easy.

You can now sit down and do your 2 page layout. When you're finished, put the extra pictures away in storage.

COMMIT YOURSELF

We all have such busy lives these days and usually the only time we commit to scrapbooking is when we go to a crop.

If you commit to at least once a month to sit down and do your 2 page layout of your baby, you'll be completing an album in no time. Now if you want to sit and do 2 or 3 spreads, then by all means, please do.

IF YOUR CHILD IS OLDER

If you are scrapbooking your child's baby pictures then get them involved too! We all know that scrapbooking is an awesome time to bond and build relationships with people. Why not your own child? Get them organizing & helping you out.

Focus more on what was happening in the picture to help you remember at what age your baby was. If you can't remember, then scrapbook the pictures by the event.

It doesn't necessarily have to be on chronological order. :)

Follow these above steps and you will stay organized and up to date on your baby's first year. Get going!
