I love, love, love this idea for organizing photos. When my Grandfather passed away in 2007, I was asked to take on the photo slideshow production. It was difficult to get images from all over the country (our family is very spread out) to me in a timely fashion so that I could scan them, organize them and put music to a movie presentation. Not to mention I was dealing with the fact that my Grandfather remarried a woman years ago and, let’s just say family relations were strained. So, what was I to do? I basically put on a happy face and accepted Fedex after Fedex of images from far and wide. After hours and hours of scanning, I finished it and had created a small presentation for his life celebration. That’s one way to do it.
Here is another way…. I think a much easier way! Join a website like www.flickr.com (for high resolution storing and downloads, you have to pay a “pro” fee — the free site won’t allow you download original size). It’s a website that enables people to upload their own images and lets the owner of the account (and others) download and print photos. Everyone from Kansas to Hawaii can have a photo store scan their images and upload them from their locations. Ba to the bye Fedex packages, and hello to the digital world and fabulous slideshow and media productions in a short period of time.
The best part of all is that you can also create a private memorial blog or website using a template with all kinds of great photographs all in one place with the photos you have already scanned.
If you want to print the images for a photo book, check out this link on Flickr’s website for FAQ on printing from their site:
