Do you print your photographs? or store them digitally?
First, you need to decide what form you will have them in. Some people will just keep most of the photographs on the computer or digital photo frame. They will upload them electronically, and possibly put them into specific photo files. This will save on the cost of printing and the need to store them in print. Other people will still want to print out the photographs. Get an idea of how many photographs you have, remembering that you are likely to add more on a regular basis.
Decide how you want to store the photographs
You will have many choices. Of course, you can purchase albums. These are nice because they provide an easy way to look through the pictures. It is something that you can take place and show to people.
There are many different choices of albums. Some have room for a few pictures as well as other things, such as writing. Other albums hold many more pictures. Another idea is to use photo boxes. These are specifically made for pictures; they make very efficient use of the space. These are often decorated nicely and look nice on a shelf. You can also use other boxes, both generic and specifically made for photographs.
Now you need to categorise the photographs
How do you want to group them? Some options are to group them in chronological order, place them according to events, put them together based on who is in the picture, or put the photographs into categories, such as all vacation photographs, professional photoshoots etc. You can use one or a combination of these. If storing photos online, Frommers suggests being aware that, in some cases, photos will be automatically reformatted.
If storing photos in print, place them neatly where they go
Make sure to label all of the boxes and albums so that you know where everything is. You can also write out a directory in a computer file so that you know exactly where to go to look for individual photographs. Make sure to have a system for adding more storage as you receive more photographs.
No matter what method you use to organise your photographs, it is important to keep everything neat. Put pictures away as soon as you get them, and they are more likely to stay neat and nice for years.
