What Do I Do with All of These Photos?

What Do I Do with All of These Photos?

If you are shooting a daily photo challenge and taking a picture everyday, by the end of the year, you should end up with at least 365 photos you have shared. It's not unlikely that you have triple that amount of images you have not shared, but they live somewhere on your phone or computer. So, what do you do with all of them? I have a few suggestions:

WEEKLY

Print 3 to 5 of your favorite images you take each week. You can print these at home on nice photo paper or you can send them to a local lab. You can also save your favorite images in a folder on your computer until the end of the month, then create a keepsake album or print of your images. Either way, print them out and get them off of your devices.

MONTHLY

Create a video of the images you took during the month. Something as simple as a slideshow will work or you can use online tools and apps to create a video:

YEARLY

If you are not printing a photo book monthly, consider printing one at the end of the year. This is something I wish I had done with all the pictures I have taken over the years. My pictures are nicely organized on my computer and external hard drives, but what is the likelihood I am going to look at those pictures? A printed book makes it easier to reflect on the year and they make great gifts for family members you do not see that often. 

I hope you decide to print more of your pictures from now on and the resources above are a great starting point for doing so.
