Tips to organize photos and create great albums

“I’ve come to realize that I’m definitely better at taking photos than organizing them! I realized that I totally need help to organize photos”

Wouldn’t it be great to create order from the chaos of our never ending digital photos? Here are some helpful tips to organize photos…

Like many people, I love taking photos that document everything that’s happening in my life, which for me revolves a lot around my kids, holiday and family events and activities.  As a result, my smartphone has got literally hundreds of images, and there are many thousands more gathering digital dust in various disk drives, flash keys…and in the cloud! I can’t organize photos!  

While I’m fairly disciplined at posting my favorite pics to Facebook, a good portion of my photos are already organized in my Facebook timeline…there are still a lot that aren’t!

I’ve come to realize that I’m definitely better at taking photos than organizing them!

That’s why one of my New Year’s resolutions was to try and get my sprawling collection of memories and pics better organized! (And check here why I think that a keeping a Year Book matters!)

The dream of having all my favorite pictures in one place

I’ve always loved the orderliness of photographic albums, organized by theme or by year. I love the fact that with an album you have all your memories in one place – that doesn’t involve searching in computer directories! However, with so many thousands of pictures spread all over the place, the thought of getting my digital memories organized is overwhelming!  Thankfully, My Social Book can really help me with that.


Thanks to My Social Book I don’t have to look too far to get my special memories in order.  For a start, My Social Book takes everything you’ve already posted on your Facebook timeline or page (or Instagram) and magically turns it into an organized story of your life…in chronological order.  Yep, they do all the hard and time-consuming work for you!


My Social Book organizes everything chronologically!

All you need to do is select the time period you want to organize and My Social Book does all the systematic work of placing it on the page, creating chapters by month, annotating pictures with comments from your Facebook, adding time stamps, and more.


The result is a beautiful printed album with hundreds of your memories and favorite moments in one ordered place! Not floating in the virtual world but printed on paper that you can hold in your hand, and revisit whenever you like.


Actually, it seems that what I really need to do a better job of in 2018 is keeping my Facebook up to date…but maybe that’s a different New Year resolution…
