Converting old media for family heritage

One option for preserving digital photos

Recently I did some unscientific research asking friends in a Facebook group what their biggest challenge is with their photos.  Many of the responses were around organization, storage and preseving their digital photos.  Here are a few of the responses:

  • Being able to upload them to the cloud in organized files
  • Something to indicate if photos have previously been archived
  • Organizing them into a simple system we can actually look at
  • Storing them in a way that they are easily accessible when needed
  • Being able to put all my photos neatly in a book


There is a solution to all of these problems and that is
