Going digital is great.
You get to see your pictures right away; it's like Polaroids on steroids! You can upload them and have them on your computer or a CD in no time. I have found only one problem...
I haven't had pictures developed since 1972.
Alright, so maybe I wasn't even born in 1972, but the point is, since going digital, I don't develop my pictures and I can't possibly be the only one (am I?). I have hundreds of pictures on my computer and Cd's, and only lonely photo albums waiting to filled with life.
It's great to have your pictures in albums on your computer, but what if your computer crashes and you lose everything? All those memories...gone. We're also talking space here. The more pictures you have, the slower your computer can become. You can put your pictures on Cd's, but then you can't look at them on a whim. I'm all about real albums with real pictures.
Perhaps you do develop your pictures. Perhaps you still use a...a...what the heck do you call non-digital cameras anyway? Maybe you have a drawer full of pictures like I do that are in desperate need of a real home. Today is the day.
Your challenge for today is to begin to develop and organize your pictures. For some, this may be a huge job (for scrapbookers, today is surely a free day for you!). I'm not expecting that you finish today, but at least get started. If you want to save some $, here are a few sites that offer free digital prints when you first sign up:
Snapfish (50 free prints)
Clark Photo Labs (30 free prints)
My Photo Album (20 free prints)
York Photo Labs (40 free prints)
CVS (50 free prints)
Have fun strolling down memory lane - but don't get too distracted!
