  • After i upload them I will label them soon otherwise I forget.  For old photos you can put post its on the back. if you are using a scrapbook, put pictures in and write a caption

  • Organize them by date. Write on the back where it is, when and who is in the shot from left to right. Put them in an acid free photo album.

  • I load them by date and then near the end of the year I change those dates to a descriptive name (for the folder). Sometimes then I will combine them, like all 'misc' together, or all 'food' together, no matter what date it was taken. If I want to remember anything I put it in the file name.

  • I do them in different ways. My favorites i scrap book. Have a page for one vacation with little momentos. Like when we took my daughter to gettysburg, we have the ticket stubs from her first train ride, photos, along with a little insert at the bottom with where we were and the date and who was there.

    some I put into regular photo albums that are specific (like I have one of just my daughter and they have markers for each month of her first year).

    others I have in a box that I just have the date they were taken, where they were, and who was in them.
