Digging through some old family photos or scrolling through the phone’s camera roll images are the perfect ways of walking through memory lane. But do you want to restrict those precious golden memories to your phone or an old photo album that’s falling apart? Maybe not!
Now’s the time to share, print, and begin displaying your favorite memories. But, how do you do that? How about letting space for some ideas to spark some inspiration? Sounds great, isn’t it? And, if you’ve said to yourself: I will digitize these old photos one day, it might be the time to fulfill that promise.
Don’t know how to start? Read on these ways of reviving your wellbeing through your old memories:
Digitize your Old Photos
Make use of your phone: Do you have a box, or let’s say 50 boxes of paper photos? It’s always a brilliant idea to digitize them so that you don’t have to worry about damaging or losing them ever. Use a GoogleScan app for digitizing the photos by following some directions for easily sharing these.
Buy a Scanner: If not through phone, invest in an at-home scanner for restoring photos. A scanner works wonders in letting you restore those countless memories- the ones that have lost their colour.
Leave the work to the pros: Do you have hundreds or thousands of photos? If yes, then you surely don’t wish to indulge in the tedious scanning process on your own.
If that’s the case, it’s just and wise to reach out to professionals for digitizing your photos. They’ll help you scan those photos, fix the colour and tone, and reduce the USPS courier burdens.
Share Photos (privately) with your Friends and Family
The global pandemic seems to make people crave the lost human connection. If social distancing has been taking a toll on you, bondiFng over shared memories is an excellent way of starting a conversation.
But, how do you do that without texting each person individually or sharing your precious yet private memories on social media?
Well, consider setting up a shared album or use the iCloud Photo Library. Now add all those photos to the album and then invite your family to view the same via a link. You can also read through the article on sharing your photos on Mac if you’re using one. Reading on the resource, you’ll discover the ways for private photo sharing.
Print your Favorites
Do you wish to print some of your favourite snaps from the thousands of photos on the camera roll? Now’s the time to do that, folks. Make use of sites like Snapfish or Shutterfly for ordering prints online. All it takes is a few clicks, and you’ll find them delivered to your door. And, the best part is- you don’t have to step foot in the store!
Turn the Photos into a Wall Art
Why keep your beloved photos restricted to your phone or photo album? Frame your serene life moments into wall art and flaunt them to the world.
Gift shops sell fantastic art made up of old photographs. Consider using resin or decoupage for creating playful collages for tabletops, walls, or anything else. By doing so, you not only bring life to the multiple photos at once, but you also change them as and when the mood strikes!
Some other ways of displaying your old memories are holding a photo party and labeling these to prevent the future hassle.
