How To Organize Photos Into A System That You Can Live With

These Photo Organization Tips From A Professional Organizer Will Give You Such A Sense Of Accomplishment


Your recent photos may be in digital files, but what about all the printed copies from years past?  These smart tips will teach you how to organize photos like a pro!



We are so fortunate to live in a time where picture taking couldn’t be easier.  But what to do with all those photos?  Organizing the digital versions can be done fairly easily through the use of folders and hard drives, but I would imagine that most of us have a collection of printed copies from years past that are thrown in drawers, boxes, bulletin boards…with the intention of one day finding and organizing all of them.

Well, here is some good news.  The organizing gurus at Modern Parents Messy Kids are here to tell us to let go of the idea that we have to put all our photos in albums.  Instead, they highly recommend the use of photo or archival boxes, with photos simply sorted by dividers.  This system is a little more flexible than albums and is a fraction of the cost.  The gathering and sorting might take awhile, but you can recruit older kids to help with that and, at the same time, it will be a nice trip down memory lane for all of you.  Then later, once you have everything sorted, you can decide if you want to take an individual event or time period around which to build a scrapbook.  That project should be much less daunting once you have everything organized like a pro!



The professional’s advice on how to organize photos can be summarized in 5 steps.

  1. Gather
  2. Sort
  3. Edit
  4. Storage
  5. Label
