Raise of hands if you have hundreds of photos on your camera roll 🙋🏼♀️ From beach days in our matching swimmers to trick-or-treating with Kortni Jeane, there are so many memories we cherish sitting on our phones! Now’s the time to preserve our precious memories and look back at them often with National Save Your Photos Day! Celebrated on the last Sunday of September every year, it’s time to make sure your photos don’t get left behind!
BRING OUT PHOTO ALBUMS
Do you or your parents have those giant photo albums in storage rooms or on bookshelves, collecting dust? Bring them out and start organizing them with labels. Family albums contain many hidden treasures so don’t hesitate to dive right into them. Take it a step further and scan the pages into a drive so you have a backup if the originals are ever lost.
BACKUP PHOTOS INTO A DRIVE
It’s always a good idea to back up your pictures into an external hard drive or a cloud service like Google Photos. And the best part? It should only take you a few minutes. Get started as soon as you can so you never lose those memories.
MAKE A DIGITAL ARCHIVE
If you’re like us, you’re moving into a world that is purely digital. So making a digital archive might be perfect for you! Just find yourself a scanner and start scanning all of your photos in order to digitize them. Then you can store them into an archive or a hard drive.
WHY WE CELEBRATE SAVE YOUR PHOTOS DAY
TO SAVE MEMORIES
If you’ve ever seen an old photo, you know that they don’t always last forever. They can get lost, damaged, or even deleted. 😱 When we save our photos, we take care that they will be within arms reach when needed.
FOR FUTURE GENERATIONS
There’s something about seeing photos of your grandparents when they were teenagers… and you can do the same. We are not the only audience for these photos! Your kids, grandkids, and great grandkids will want to see photos from the past. It’s important to save photos for their sake as well as ours.
TO STAY ORGANIZED
Phew! Photos can take up to 60% or 70% of our storage space! Backing them up into a drive will give you a lot more space and make room for fresh memories. If you’re anything like us, we’re snapping pics of our Kortni Jeane adventures non-stop! We need that storage space.
But really the best part about Save Your Photos Day is looking back on all the memories we’ve made. Nothing beats an adventure sporting Kortni Jeane! As you’re going through and saving your photos, post your favorite throwbacks wearing KJ + tag us! We give away $50 of KJ credit every week and the next winner could be you!
