Photo sharing on the Internet is easy and fun. But there’s one problem with it … how do you gather all those great photos you email back and forth to family and friends into one place?
The solution is easier than you might think! Just go online create a digital photo album. It’s really very easy. Here’s how you do it:
Gather your photos. If you have photos you received from friends via email, simply gather those into a folder on your computer. Place your own photos into that same folder.
Take some time to really decide which photos you want to include. This is an important step that can save you time later. If you’re undecided, you can always put your photos into two folders, and name one of the folders “Photo Album” so you know which group of photos will likely be in the Album. You can always change your mind later and include any photo you want in your Album, but being a little organized up front will speed the process.
Upload your photos. Once you have all the photos you want to put into your album in one folder, upload them to a photo sharing service. Some have bulk uploaders that let you save as many as 300 photos all at once.
Once you’ve uploaded your photos, you can rest assured they’ll be safe forever. Our servers won’t be damaged or threatened by fire, flood, burglaries, or any other disaster.
Scan in older printed photos. If you have printed photos you’d like to include, scan them in. Look for a site that lets you scan your older prints directly to the Internet in one easy step – that way you don’t have to take up space on your computer’s hard drive.
Pick you album. There is lots to choose from online. The number of photos you can fit into the Album will depend on how big you want your photos to be, and how many photos per page you want.
Select your page payout, theme, colors and cover style. It’s a lot of fun deciding what you want to embellish your Album with. There are a variety of themes to choose from and you can express any mood, celebrate any Holiday, or communicate any feeling you want!
Drag and drop your photos onto your Album pages. It’s that simple – and you can move your photos around within the Album however you choose. Look for a site that lets you resize and change the way your photo looks – all while you are in the Album Workbench.
Add text or captions. This is a lot of fun – you can tell stories, add quick captions, whatever you like. It’s a great way to preserve the stories behind the photos.
Checkout and have your digital Photo Album delivered anywhere you want. This is the fun part – when you checkout, you can have your Album delivered to anyone you want.
Then, once you’re done, you can send your digital Photo Album to friends and family electronically, and they can order their own copies if they so choose!
