How to be Successful on Your Resolution to Catch Up Preserving Your Photos

Catching up on preserving photos is a common New Year’s Resolution.  Even when it’s not an official Resolution, it’s a common goal.  I quite often hear people talk about their need to catch up doing something with their photos.  This month on Evolve’s #familyhistoryfriday, we will focus on solutions for your resolutions.  We will learn the first steps you need to take to be successful, options for both digital and already-printed photos, and the Two-in-One plan.

You Already Know Why

Because you’re reading an article about how to be successful on your resolution to catch up preserving your photos, you already know why it’s important.  Or maybe you have seen articles like this one on Creating Family Stories, or this one on How Knowing Family Stories Helps Kids Cope or Preserving Photos and Stories: Why You Should Care. Maybe you read my own feelings Why I Stay Caught Up Preserving My Photos and Memories.  Or maybe you have simply seen the look on a child’s face when she pulls out a book all about her or when she looks at the pictures from last year’s special vacation.

You already know why preserving your photos and the memories that go with them is important.  Let me help you do it.

You’re Invited to Conquer Your Photos

Whether you have a lot of digital photos on your technology (phone, computer, camera) or you have boxes of printed photos, all you need to conquer them is a few tools.  I know it can be overwhelming if you don’t know where to start, but that’s exactly the hurdle I want to help you jump over.

So let’s talk about it.  Let’s explore some simple but effective tools and solutions so we’re ready to roll up our sleeves and get to work.  THIS IS YOUR YEAR.  Get some tools and tips to actually catch up on the photos you need to preserve and then stay caught up

I would love you to join me for a free, 40-minute online class (via Zoom) where I can share some specific tools and solutions to your photo problems.  This class includes my Two-in-One plan and will include a printable plan as well.

The class, Conquering Your Photos with the Two-in-One Plan, will be on Wednesday, January 10, 2018, at 10:00am Mountain Time.  (That’s 9:00 Pacific, 11:00 Central, and 12:00 Eastern.)  All you need to do in order to attend is click right here:

Conquering Your Photos Class (live)

“Well done is better than well said.”

Benjamin Franklin said that.  Knowing about the powerful and lasting benefits of memory-keeping is all well and good, but unless we actually put that knowledge into practice, it doesn’t even matter.  Let’s start off this year with a real plan, a real way to finally be able to catch up preserving your photos and memories.  And stay there.

If you can’t attend the online class live, a recording will be posted later.  The online class will focus on learning how to conquer your photos yourself, but Jennifer also has a Personal Photo Manager program if you prefer to hire it out.  This is a great option if you need help getting ahead.

  1. I pinned and will re-tweet. I hope you get a good number of signups. I wish I had more time to get to this, its def. on my to do list just not in the foreseeable future.

  2. I look forward to the day when I can finally do this. I feel bad that I hardly have any photos out of my digital camera of my one year old. I like that you want to help people to do this and even offer a class. Thank you for the inspiration!

    • Glad you were inspired, Amy! I hope people will enjoy the class and take something useful from it–I’ll post a recording next week. Preserving photos and memories does take SOME time, but there are some methods that are a lot faster than others, and I share a couple in the class, so I hope someone watching will really benefit! Thanks for reading and commenting. 🙂
