3 Things You Should Be Doing With Your Pictures
If you are like most people with a smart phone or camera, then you have hundreds, or thousands of pictures just sitting around on your devices. It’s time to do something with these!

1. Organize Them
Before you do anything else, stop and organize your pictures. This includes deleting repeats (Who needs the same selfie 50 times?). Delete any out of focus images, or images of scenery that you can’t even begin to place. If a picture doesn’t bring back a memory for you, then let it go.
I recommend consistency with how you organize. I like to organize mine by year first, and then event or date. It is easier to find my daughter’s 9th Birthday if I have it labeled “Aybra’s 9th Birthday” instead of some obscure date.
2. Back Them Up
I learned a hard lesson when my first child was born. My computer system crashed and I lost every single image that I had taken of him. I was only able to recover images that I had sent to my family. Since then I’ve been backing up my images every few months.
Google Drive is a great place to start. You can back up your images and access them from any device. The above image shows a peek inside my 2017 folder on my Google Drive.
3. Print & Display Them
As a photographer one of my passions is urging people to print and display their family portraits. Sure, digital pictures that you can share with your friends online are great, but seeing a portrait of your family in your home brings those memories alive.
If your photographer doesn’t offer prints, then you are in luck. Photowall is an online printing company that will let you print any image for display.
Canvas is one popular option that displays well. I recently used Photowall to print one of my family’s portraits (that I took myself!). I was a little nervous of the DIY frame, but it was a breeze to put together and my family portrait looks great sitting atop our piano. (I need to get some strong muscles to help me move the piano so I can relocate the image and hang it above the piano!)
Yes, it’s large, but Photowall makes printing big affordable. Photowall doesn’t stop at family portraits though.
Photowall Has It
Photowall has all the artwork needed to decorate your bedroom, living room, kitchen, office, or even business. They offer some super cute motifs whether you just want to add a little color with a small canvas, or spice up an entire room with some fun wall paper patterns.

All products are made to order, environmentally friendly, fire-retardant, and won’t fade in sunlight. They have a satisfaction guaranteed. So, what are you waiting for? Start printing your pictures now!
