Technology has allowed us to take pictures whenever we want. Gone are the days lugging around a camera; we now catch amazing photos on our phones. Whether you are taking selfies, landscapes or life’s memorable moments, if your phone is like mine, it is packed with photos and getting fuller every day. But what do you do with all of those photos and how can you find one when you’re looking for it?
The best way to get started is to get organized. For iPhone users, Artifact Uprising has 10 great tips to help you organize your photos, including setting your favorites, creating albums, embracing the delete button and more! For Android users, Google Support provides you with instructions on creating and editing photo albums on your phone.
Once you have everything organized, you may want to choose to have some of them printed. Today there are so many options like Walgreens, CVS and Walmart all have services where you upload your pictures through their app or online and then pick up the hard copies at your local store or have them mailed out to your home. Amazon offers a similar service but without a brick and mortar location for pickup.
A popular option is to have your photos made into something you can hang on your wall. With Mixtile you can upload your favorite photos and they will print them out on an 8”x8” photo board that is backed with an adhesive for easy mounting. You can also rearrange them on your wall without damage to the paint.
A unique option although more expensive is to have your pictures printed on glass. With Fracture Me you are not limited to just one size and the photo quality is really spectacular. This is the way to go for those truly special photos you want to hang on your wall like a piece of art.
So many of us have more time on our hands due to Covid-19, so this is the perfect time to get organized and do something special with all of those memories hidden on our phones.
