Tips for organising and printing your photos

Do you have a lifetime of photos on your phone begging to be organised? Would you love to print your favourite photos and have them displayed on the walls of your home?

With digital photography making taking photos so easy for everyone, we are all being overwhelmed with thousands of (mostly useless) photos, using up valuable space on our phones.

Have you ever looked round at the tornado that swept through your house while your children were at home that day, not knowing where to begin with tidying up? Then you’ll have some kind of idea of how it feels to open up your photos app!

Once you turn the tidying up into bite size chunks, it makes it much more appealing to get the job done because it is manageable. It’s the same with your photos.

Did you know, that having photos hanging on your walls, increases your childrens’ self confidence? It gives them a sense of belonging. What better reason to get those photos off your phone, and onto your walls!

Recently, I was fortunate to have Chris, CEO and founder of Memorable Moments, take over my Instagram stories, sharing her tips for organising your photos ready to print.

I hope these tips help you in getting your photos organised for printing!

Step 1: Decide your photo theme and stick to it!

If you want the photos on your wall to look cohesive, decide on one theme. Examples could be:

  • A recent holiday
  • Your wedding
  • A family reunion
  • Your baby’s first year

Once you have chosen your photo theme, it will make it much easier to sift through the lifetime of photos on your phone and choose the ones you want to print, as you have a clear goal.

Step 2: Get organised with an album

Next, is organising your digital photos into one place. On both Android and iPhone, you can use the built in folder function called Albums. Create a new album to add your themed photos for your printing project.

Once you have done that, you just have to fill that folder!

Step 3: Only focus on finding the photos you want to print

With your photo theme in mind, only copy the photos you want to print into that album. The amount will depend on how you will print your photos.  This could be a 12 image collage (So you will need to choose 12 photos), or it could be 9 images framed for a gallery wall.

Now that you have chosen your images to print, just jump onto the Memorable Moments app, which you can download for free, to place your order.

If you have any questions, you can DM Chris directly on Instagram, she is always happy to help.
