Consolidating photos

I think photos and photo albums are one of the only things that really give me true anxiety…..because it’s so easy to get behind!The only way that I can keep myself from worrying about it all is having a system.My checklist allows me to step away from my photo projects without forgetting where I left off…..otherwise I’d lost my place and it would be a disaster.My checklist is by month and there are 4 columns: Once I pick up my hard copies at the store, I make a folder for each month using a piece of cardstock and a stapler: On the front of the cardstock, I write important dates to remember when making my albums and for future reference with duplicates: An entire years worth of photos organized and cataloged with little effort: I have a small box (from Ikea) for each year…..shoeboxes work well too: In the same box I put mementos, Christmas cards, maps, certificates etc: I love the look of physical albums that we can flip through……I also make a yearly book for Boo and her grandparents.If I edit photos in an external program, I make sure to import them back into i Photo so that I can keep all events together.I’ll eventually delete versions of the photos that I don’t want to keep.Once they are uploaded I back those folders up to a 4G DVDs before removing them. This way I have two different backups….in case one gets damaged….then I remove ALL photos for that year from my computer.So at this point I have my photos stored at Costco, on 2 DVDs, and in hard copy. Here’s a tutorial I did on backing up files and how to make an easy index using the print screen function: or the image to visit the entire post!

It’s also a place I can add in “everything else”…scanned artwork: When I upload my photos to Costco or Target I usually export them to the desktop into a folder.

That’s enough for me…you might prefer a super duper external hard drive too. I also try and keep family photos separate from blogging photos.

I export and backup my LBB files almost every month so all that’s left in my i Photo are personal photos.

Once all your photos are in one place, the first step is to start grouping them by year.

I group all my photos in i Photo because it’s easy to drag and drop photos into events and to split them apart by “creating an event.” After the photos are grouped by year, I start consolidating the photos into months.

I keep a checklist for each year’s photos because sometimes I get REALLY behind……and it can be expensive printing a years worth of photos all at once…I try to space it out a little.
