Organizing Photos – Professional Organizers Blog Carnival

Organizing Photos - Professional Organizers Blog CarnivalSeptember is Save Your Photos Month, a public service outreach campaign developed by the Association of Personal Photo Organizers (APPO) to teach individuals how they can preserve life’s irreplaceable photos, videos, and documents, in the event of unforeseen accident or disaster.

I encourage you to visit the Save Your Photos website to learn more about this initiative, including webinars and local events taking place this month in Australia, Canada, The Netherlands, New Zealand, and the United States.

In honor of Save Your Photos Month, I’m pleased to welcome APPO as the sponsor for this edition of the Professional Organizers Blog Carnival, which is all about Organizing Photos (of course!).

Thanks to all the savvy photo organizers and other organizing consultants who contributed their photo organizing tips – and a huge thank you to APPO for sponsoring this edition of the Professional Organizers Blog Carnival.

Next month’s Blog Carnival is about Organizing Recipes, and I invite you to make a submission any time up until 7:00 PM EDT on Tuesday, October 17th. If this topic is a great fit for you, why not maximize your exposure by becoming a sponsor?

A former professional organizer, I’m now a Web Designer and Care Plan Specialist. I love helping others succeed by sharing the knowledge and insight I’ve gained through marketing my own business for over 15 years! When I’m away from my desk, I enjoy reading, photography, watching movies, and cooking.

  1. Wow – great roundup of contributors and content. I’ve just been helping a client with digital photos. It can feel overwhelming for sure. The technology changes so quickly, it can be challenging to stay on top of it all. So thankful for APPO and their expertise!

    • As a photography buff who loves to take photos of all kinds, I’m really excited about all the information and resources suggested by the contributors. I may have even found my next big project! 😉

  2. Janet, Sorting and minimizing the photos, both print and digital is the next phase of our minimizing project. I’ve gathered the 10K plus loose and albumed photos in one corner of the family room, where they visually can’t be ignored. I plan to start on the print phase of this project as soon as it gets cooler and I’m stuck inside in the evenings. Now, I’ll add an important first step to this project, reading through all of these postings. : ) Thanks for pulling together all of this great content. Best, Andrea

    • Wow, that’s a lot of photos! I can’t even imagine how many I have here in albums and boxes (and possibly other places), but what an exciting project! I’m sure you’ll find some valuable tips in here.

  3. Thanks for this carnival, Janet. For the first time in my adult life, I have found a hobby – making photo books! It is my Saturday morning activity while the house is filled with sleeping people. I saved this roundup to read this morning, and am now inspired to pull out all of the kid artwork I’ve saved and organize/purge it on my dining room table. I plan to photograph the key pieces and include them in future photo books. I feel informed, appropriately caffeinated, and ready to go!

    • What a wonderful hobby! I am itching to organize some photos myself, especially with all this great inspiration. Having a specific goal in mind would definitely help me scratch that itch. 🙂
