5 tips for organising and managing digital photos

Since there are countless options to click photos nowadays, quite often we end up with a bunch of disorganised photographs in random folders on our computer. If this is the case, chances are your computer will be flooded with a gazillion folders most of which you can’t quite recall what’s in them and when the photos were even taken. Most likely you have photos in folders that don’t even make sense (although they probably made sense at the time you filed them there!).

Seeing it’s the beginning of a New Year and that normally means organisation, it’s time to sort your digital photos and organise them into some order that makes sense (to more people than just you).

Here’s 5 handy tips that will have you organising and managing digital photos like an expert.

  1. Get your folders sorted

A really easy way of setting up photo folders on your computer is by year and date. Everything is in chronological order and is easy to find.

How To organise OLD photos

If you have old photos in your computer then you will need to check each of their dates to transfer them to specified folders. You can easily check the dates by going on each photo’s property and check the date the photo was created on then it’s just a matter of drag and drop.

How To organise NEW photos

First thing you are going to want to do is, set your camera’s date and time correctly so your future photos will have the date and time on them. This is too easy if most of your photos are taken on an iPhone or other smartphone. Accordingly put them in the designated folder.

How To Create Folders

  • Create a master folder and name it “Photos/Pictures (it’s possible you already have one on your computer or laptop).
  • Create sub-folders and rename them to years.
  • Inside each YEAR create ‘categories’ or ‘months’ folder. This is only necessary if you have a lot of photos, else you can put the photos directly in the ‘year’ folder.

 

  1. Software

Instead of doing everything manually, why not get help from photo management software. This type of software allows you to import photos in bulk, lets you tag them and makes it super easy for you to find photos in the future.

For example, you can use tags like ‘picnic’, ‘kids’ or ‘birthdays’ and anytime you would like to search for images of kids or picnic, just type the word in and the software will extract all the tagged images for you. Lots of photo software programs also have face recognition meaning that it will automatically recognise people in photos and once you’ve initially set up who is who, the program will be able to grab every photo of one specific person. It’s not foolproof but it takes a lot of work out of having to categorise people.  There are plenty of software programs available online like Picasa, SmugMug, Lightroom and Photobucket many of which are free and super easy to navigate.

  1. Storage

hard drive

 

If you have a tonne of digital photos, it’s not a bad idea store them in an external hard drive instead of directly on your computer. This way it is easier to manage photos and they won’t take up storage on your computer and slow things down. Although whatever you do, be sure to make at least one set of backups of your photos just in case (preferably two).

  1. Backup

We can’t stress enough that making a backup of all of your photos is really important. Super important. All those memories captured over the years stored in only one place is a recipe for disaster. Whilst we don’t necessarily expect bad things to happen it is wise to be prepared. Create a backup of all your photos by storing them in at least two safe locations. You can save photos on an external hard drive or store them on an online portal such as SmugMug, Shutterfly, Flickr, Microsoft OneDrive etc. These are all reputed and reliable online photo storage sites. But here’s a piece of advice, no matter what site you choose, be sure to do your part of research to make sure your data is safe on the website.

  1. Print an Annual Photo Book, Scrapbook, Smashbook or Photo Album

Whilst it’s great being able to snap endless photos on your iPhone, there’s nothing quite like having a printed version of your photos so you can touch and turn them and pop them on display.  Once a year pick your most favourite photos and print them on your Pringo mini wifi photo printer and turn them into a scrapbook, smashbook,  a wall decoration or simply pop into an album ready to be shared with friends and family.

 

Organising your digital photos takes a little bit of time in the first instance, but once you have your folders and systems set up, keeping them organised will be a cinch. Happy snapping.

Photocraft: 6 things to create with your photographs

There’s nothing quite as gratifying as taking a photograph and making it into something different. Something crafty. Something handmade. Photocraft ends in something you can gift , use or decorate your house or office with. There are literally 1000’s of photocraft ideas and inspirations across the web (which you’ll know if you’ve spent anytime on Pinterest), it’s just a matter of finding the ones you like AND the ones that are within your skill set :-). Here’s a few of our favourite ideas for turning your printed photographs into something extra special:

1. Creative Gift Wrap

There’s two ways you can wrap a gift, just plain old wrap it, or….. you can tell a story with your gift wrap. Adding photos to your gift wrap is a beautiful way of telling (or re-telling) a story, emphasising a friendship or showing how much you care. Adding photos to your gift wrapping adds both significance and personal value to the gift, not-to-mention negates the need to add a card 🙂 . Here’s a heartwarming idea for a perfect gift wrap that will guarantee smiles from the recipient.

How to make it: Print a photo relevant to the person or the occasion.Wrap the gift with a plain gift wrap, then wrap with ribbon along the length of the gift. Make sure the two ends of the ribbon meet in the centre of your gift. Stick down the two ends of ribbon to your gift with adhesive then stick your photo on top of ribbon where the two ends meet. Such a simple addition to your gift, but it adds so much meaning.

2. Bottletop Photo Magnets

Create your very own adorable bottletop photo magnets. They are a great gift option for friends or family for Christmas, birthdays or even gifts to use at the office.  Alternatively, make these magnets with photos of your most recent holiday and stick them on your fridge to keep you going until your next holiday. 

How to make it: Set aside the number of bottletops you’re planning to use. You can use beer bottletops, soda tops, or any other bottle tops that are clean and undamaged.

Print your photos and cut them in the shape and size of the inside of your bottletops (The standard size of a soda cap is about 2.5 cms in diameter).

Paint the inside of the cap with multiple layers (at least two) of white hobby paint so it gives it a fresh, clean and new look before you add photos. Once the paint is completely dry, stick the small photos in the cap using adhesive. Now, using a stronger adhesive, stick a small piece of magnet sheet at the back of the cap. Let it cool off for a few hours. And it’s ready!

Stick to the nearest fridge or magnetic whiteboard.

2. Balloon Photo Holder

Make your party decoration the best by creating this unique balloon photo holder at the dinner table. What a great conversation starter!

How to make it: Print 10 photos relevant to the occasion (e.g if it’s a birthday party print photos of the birthday girl/boy, for a wedding print pics of the lucky couple etc.). Now, you will need 10 sheets of white paper the same shape of your photos but about 1/2 – 1 inch wider than your  photos. Stick each photo in the centre of the paper and attach it to satin ribbon and punch a hole in the top centre of the paper.  Inflate 10 balloons with helium, tie off the ribbon to each of your balloons holding the inflated balloon and let the balloons hit the ceiling. You can have a variety of effects by either making your ribbon the same length for uniformity (maybe if you’re using the same photo) or have different lengths to mix it up. This special photo arrangement can be displayed at occasions such as birthdays, baby showers, weddings, engagement parties…..oh the list goes on…

3. Fun Photo Bookmarks

This is such a neat idea for a Christmas gift or stocking filler for kids or family members. They’re heaps of fun to make too if you get the kids involved. 

How to make it: You can create this super fun photo bookmark by first taking a photo of the kids individually in a fun position with one or both of their arms above their heads. Print the photo and then cut around the shape of the child. Glue the photo onto a plain white sheet (then laminate if you have a laminator) and roughly cut the white sheet also in the same shape as the kid’s figure (the white sheet will create a strong base for the photo). Use a hole puncher to punch a hole through the pictured child’s hand then tie off handcrafted woolen string or a sleek satin ribbon to it.

4. Re-create Your Lampshade

This lampshade makes a perfect gift for a friend, mum, Dad or someone else special in your life.  This would add a lovely, personal touch to any room and is a great talking point. 

How to make it: Print the desired photos and arrange them how you want them placed on the lampshade. Once you’ve figure out the pattern you want, stick the photos to the lampshade using a hot glue gun. Carefully finish by bluing a layer of clear vellum around your lampshade and over the top of your photos. More ideas for doing this particular lampshade here

5. Handmade Christmas Tree Photo Ornaments

 

Another great idea to get creative with photos is by dangling them on your Christmas tree as decoration. I mean, what could beat these ornaments? And it is super easy to create.

How to make it: Cut out a small cardboard and make sure it matches the size of the photo you’d like to hang on the tree. Carefully paste the photo over the cardboard using adhesive. Now add a small sized string/satin ribbon at the back of the cardboard to hang the photo. Let it set for a few hours and hang them on your Christmas Tree. This is also a great gesture to show relatives and friends how much they mean to you.

 6. DIY Photo Puzzle

This photo puzzle always makes me gush!! This is a sweet idea for a personalised puzzle for a toddler or pre-schooler. You might choose a photo of the child’s favourite person, pet or object so it’s familiar when they try to put it together.

How to make it: Print a clear and uncluttered photo. Line up paddlepop sticks side-by-side and on a level surface (you’ll need anywhere between 10-20 sticks depending on the size of the photo you’re using). Lay a strip of glue along each of the sticks then carefully place your photo on top. Allow to dry for an hour or so. With a sharp knife or craft knife, cut between each stick. Now you’re ready for a little bit of toddler problem-solving action. Note: you might want to number each of the pieces.

4 DIY photo collage wall display ideas

There’s nothing quite as captivating as walking into a home filled with printed photographs. Endless memories plastered across walls and fridges whispering stories of love and friendships, good times and precious moments. For the conventional, photographs are placed in carefully selected frames then nailed to the wall or held to the fridge by magnets. Job done, photographs displayed. But why not think outside the square a little and get a little creative when sharing our beloved pics (not that there’s anything wrong with conventionalism)? Here’s some simple, yet very creative and beautiful ideas for turning your memories into a creative photo collage to proudly display on your wall. 

1. A Heart Photo Collage

Forget about going to a photo studio to get a photo collage made, you’ll be surprised to know how simple this really is.

Inspiration from: http://fromswithlove.com

Here’s How You Can Make It: Print your favorite photos that you would like to be displayed. Get a cardboard or a foam core board and cut it in a big heart shape making sure that there’s

enough space to fit in all your favorite pictures. With the help of adhesive, place photos one by one over the heart shaped board and let it dry for a couple hours. You can use a lamination sheet  to protect the photos or simply apply a coat of mod podge directly over the photos. Mod podge will give your collage a finished look. 

2. A Photo Family Tree

 Take your family tree to a new level with this photo family tree.

Here’s How You Can Make It: You don’t have to be perfect with the size and design of the photos and frames. In fact, different size and shapes will create more diversity on the wall. If you’re particularly creative you can paint your tree directly on the wall. If you’re not so courageous and Picasso-like then you can just purchase a wall decal sticker set and stick that to your wall. Hang your pics spaced evenly around then branches. 

3. Wall Full of Photos

 There’s nothing quite as mesmerizing as lots of small photos all in one spot. Photos are bound with old memories and no matter how many times you flip through the pages of your album, they’ll always make you look back and smile. But wouldn’t it be better if all the special photos from your childhood, your trip to Italy, or your graduation day were displayed on the wall?

Here’s What You Can Do: So the idea is to create a huge collage that can cover most of your targeted wall. Measure the wall and accordingly get a foam core board/core flute. If you’re looking for straight lines rather than a mixed collage effect, grab a ruler and rule parallel lines across your core board to line your printed photographs up on.  Print your favorite photos and simply paste them one by one on the board using adhesive. Once this step is complete, apply one coat of mod podge and let the collage dry overnight. Give it 24 hours to dry then hang in a prime viewing position. 

4. Vintage Handbag Photo Decoration

 If you can get your hands on vintage handbags, this is a very chic idea for photographic home deco work.

Inspiration from: sassytrash

How You Can Make It: Get a basic photo frame and remove the back cover of the frame. Place the photo in the photo frame as usual and apply adhesive on all four sides of the frame. Carefully place the frame on the handbag and let it dry overnight. Place other ornaments or artificial flowers in the handbag and hang it on the wall. So very cool!!

So it’s okay and just a little bit cool to think outside the square when it comes to hanging photographs in your house. Whilst throwing them up in frame is perfectly lovely, adding a little contemporary artsy inspiration is absolutely delightful.

7 tips for awesome smartphone photography

With advances in camera technology, smartphone photography has really taken off. We’re now starting to see more and more fantastically framed and perfectly exposed photographs that have been taken on none other than a gadget that fits into your pocket.  More and more we’re doing away with digital cameras and SLRs, so why not make the most of our little smartphone geniuses and get them to take something decent, rather than just a plethora or blurry, posed shots.

Here’s some really simple tips for taking some awesome photos with your smartphone – but be warned, these are only just the tip of the surface and don’t even start to cover things like editing apps and such.

 

Smartphone functions

A lot of smartphones have a number of great functions including panorama capability and HDR (High Dynamic Range) functions. Whilst panorama is pretty self explanatory, HDR probably not so much.  In HDR mode your smartphone takes multiple shots instead of just one, then splicing together the same image at different exposures to hopefully get the best of all of them.

Smartphone still photo with HDR on

It’s good in theory but not always effective and HDR can be susceptible to blurring your shots so use it with static pics like landscapes. It can be a little tricky to work on some phones but it’s worth having a play with it to see the differences in your pics.

Crop don’t zoom

If you’re trying to make an image larger within your photo, you’re better off working the crop function rather than zooming it. Most smartphones have a zoom function but once you start using it, there’s a noticeable degradation of the quality of your photograph. On the other hand, many smartphones are 8 megapixels or more so cropping a little here and there means you’ll still have a decent level of resolution to retain a quality photo. Just be mindful not to overcrop and lose the original focus of your photo or risk crowding your picture.

The rule of thirds

This is one of the very basics of photography and applies regardless of whether you’re shooting with a smartphone or traditional camera. The rule of thirds means you imagine a grid of lines on your smartphone display and divide the screen into thirds both vertically and horizontally.

Rule of thirds smartphone photography

Image from here

Some smartphones will come with the option to actually display the grid for you. To make your photo more appealing, try lining up your object of focus at the cross section of any of those lines.

 

Lighting

Regardless of whether you’re using a smartphone or traditional camera, you’re going to need a source of light. Just how much light you need will depend on what effect you’re looking for. Good light will give your photo depth and character which usually means if you’re shooting indoors on a cloudy day you’re going to struggle to get a good pic.

iphone photo sunrise

This photo was taken by Eric Teske with an iPhone. He tapped on the brightest part of sky within his screen to balance the light.

Try not to shoot directly into backlit situations and try to have the light falling on your object of focus. If you’re in a low light situation, think twice before using your phones camera flash. This type of flash can have harsh effects and leave people looking white and ghostly. If you really need to use the flash if you place a light coloured sticker or tissue paper over your flash when you use it, it will soften the light.

Don’t forget to focus

Your smartphone is clever but it can’t read minds so you’re going to have to show it what you want it to focus on. Many smartphones have a tap to focus feature which allows you to tap on the object you want to focus on and others have a two-stage shutter button to auto focus your camera. Whichever way your camera focuses, use this function to ensure you capture what you’re planning to.

Clean your lens

It may seem really simple but even the tiniest speck of dust or grit on your smartphone lens can affect the quality of your photo. Considering for most of us our phones are stuck in our pockets or handbags for most of the day, chances are they’re going to get dirty. Take a moment to give the lens a clean before you capture your next memory.

Print and display

With digital technology the way it is, it’s so easy to point and capture hundreds of photos in the blink of an eye. After capturing your masterpieces, don’t forget to take a moment to select your favourite photos to print and display rather than just hide them away on your smartphone or your computer.

Cue the chorus of ‘muuuum can you please print a photos of *insert relevant holiday photo here*…’ .

To make matters worse, the request is usually made at 8am on the morning the photo is required for school.

Thankfully Pringo makes printing photos simple and quick.

iphone photo storage

How many photos do you have on your iPhone?

I love my iPhone. I love the convenience of having a phone, the internet AND a super-high-quality camera in my pocket all in one device. But with that convenience comes just a little bit of drama. I have waaaaay too many photos stored on my phone. Yes clearly not a first-world problem but a problem none-the-less.

Gone are the days of lining up a photo, getting the best angle, holding your breath and taking the pic. Then heading to the local pharmacy and getting them developed, waiting with baited breath to determine if we captured the moment adequately. Nope, nowadays we tend to take 25 photos of the same thing, snapping happily away, knowing we can simply drag those unwanted suckers into the trashcan leaving only the best ones behind. But what then?

Truth be known, for many of us, our photos are usually stored on our smart phone until we try to take one more photo one day and then receive that dreaded notification…….

iphone photo storage

 

Nooooooooooo!!!! Just. One. More. Photo!!!!!!!!

 

Armed with your smartphone, you begrudgingly find your nearest laptop or desktop computer, plug your phone in, and download your pics. You cuss as you realise you’ve also not updated your phone in months so the process is going to take longer than anticipated. At the end of it all, you clear the photos from your phone so you can take another 3o00 photos before your phone storage fills and throws a tanty.

So then what?

What about the 3000 photos you just downloaded onto your laptop?

Oooh yes, better throw them onto a USB so you can take them to the nearest photo printer and stand there for 25 minutes while the machine ever so slowly uploads your 3000 photos from your USB (because you didn’t think to only throw your favourite pics on there) and then wait another 45 minutes while they’re processed…… grrr!!

 

Or you could have just linked your phone up to your Pringo mini photo printer via the free Pringo app and printed your favourite photos wirelessly within minutes…….just saying’….

 

How many photos do you have on your smart phone? What do you do with all of them?
