September is Save Your Photos Month

YOUR PHOTOS ARE ONE OF YOUR MOST CHERISHED POSSESSIONS.

Photos tell the stories of our lives.

However, in this chaotic, rapid and ever-changing digital landscape, our photos are scattered across multiple devices, in numerous boxes tucked in a closet and stored in outdated media. They’re disorganized, vulnerable, and in some cases, inaccessible.

Save Your Photos Month is the direct result of witnessing devastating losses many people experienced after natural disaster struck their communities. Wild fires, gas explosions, hurricanes, tornadoes, and other natural disasters are a constant in the daily news. Natural disasters or human error will always be a threat to your photo collection. We can help you safeguard your memories so you can prevent the loss of these irreplaceable treasures.

Follow the whole blog at Save your Photos  a professional photo organizer group.

Aaron Siskind once said,
“Photography is a way of feeling, loving, and touching.
What we have caught on film is captured forever.
It remembers little things long after we have forgotten everything.”

Also there is a very interesting blog,  DIY for using Photodex Pro Show video slide show maker.  Andrea Sims writes a comprehensive blog on how to organize, get started and execute your video slide show from photos. Read the rest of it here.

If video is not your favorite form of saving photos, try our September Make a Book class or Restoring your old photos or Learning Adobe Photoshop Elements . Nothing is more permanent for future generations than keeping and treasuring a book. cat-254572_1920.jpg

Fun with Words

There are many sites available to make your favorite activities or words into a logo or graphic. It can be really a fun graphic for your kids and families to do for their holiday cards. Let each child give you three words and incorporate all of the grandchildren wishes or sayings.

Recently I wanted to emphasize the number of software photo related classes we held last year at the lab. I just typed in the words and they created it in the shape I selected. tree lab

Several of the sites do not work on different browsers proving more work than I wanted to spend. www.wordclouds.com  This site worked and had the most features. Free of course.

In the snapshot of the work space, “flatness” means width. I found that 20% made the tree a little wider and more to the shape I had in mind. Try it.
