I took what seems like a zillion pictures last weekend and I’ve spent a great deal of time trying to organize them. It used to be easy, back in the day when you actually had “film” that you had to get “developed” so that you could return to the store a couple of weeks later to pick up your “prints” before you put them into an album, but now it’s taking me forever.
I’ve never been a very good “scrap booker”. In fact, most of the pictures that I’ve kept are stored in photo boxes on a shelf in the top of a bedroom closet. But this trip was special and I want to remember every minute.
I’ve got pictures that were taken with several different cameras and camera phones that were emailed and texted to me over the course of a four-day weekend. Each digital file has to be renamed and re-saved with a unique identifying name. The end result of the project is going to be a printed and bound album from an online service called Snapfish.
The Snapfish service offers a quick and easy online location to upload, store and organize photos and videos. It’s a free service where you can share photos from your library, create slideshows and order professionally developed prints for as little as nine cents each. Editing tools to crop, remove red eyes, add borders and tints are also available. It’s also possible to create and customize more than one hundred unique photo gifts like calendars and mugs.
I’m excited to learn more about the service and to build a book of memories that I’ll enjoy and share for many years to come.
Have you ever used an online photo sharing service to create a memory album?
