In this day of digital photos does anyone still print photos? I remember the era of not knowing what you’ve photographed until you took your film to somewhere like Jessops and getting it developed! I remember the excitinment of then picking up those photos and browsing through them! Ahh happy days!
When Taid died I took all his photos with me with the intention of scanning them in so we’d always have a record of them. It’s amazing the photos I’ve seen in his collection. This is one of my favourites – me with Taid & Jimmy. (And as it happens it would have been Taid’s birthday today – Penblwydd Hapus Taid!)
What I’m currently doing is printing 95 photos out each month for free! How? Well I’ll tell you how! I’ve downloaded two apps – the Snapfish app and the Freeprints app to my phone and you get 50 and 45 free prints respectively. Here’s a brief rundown of both apps…
~ 50 free prints per month
~ £2.99 postage
~ Can order more than one copy of each photo
~ 45 free prints per month
~ £3.99 postage
~ The photos from this app are slightly better quality than the Snapfish app but there isn’t much in it.
~ Higher postage than Snapfish app
~ Can only order 1 copy of each photo
So what on earth do I do with all these photos? Well I’m trying to do as Taid did and mark on the back of each photo what the photos are before putting them into albums. Hubby bought me two gorgeous albums for my birthday but I haven’t started filling them yet.
Productive evening of writing details on back of printed photos. Do people still print photos? #photography #real photos
I want to buy a red photo album to put all the Christmas photos in. I also want an album for our Malta holiday snaps and some for the girls’ first birthdays. But I can’t decide which ones I would like! I have setup an Amazon wishlist so I can just keep adding ones I like to it! Here’s some of my favourites.
Aren’t they gorgeous! As you can see, I can’t resist the baby photo albums!
Well I best get back to sorting my photos out since I’ll have another 95 of them land through my letterbox this month!
Do you print out photos or do you just keep digital copies?
