Photo Organisation

I finally have the time to organise my photos… 9xxx photos … (-o-)’

I found that I always crave for tidying and re-organising my home when I am on an overseas vacation. This time I satisfied my appetite by digitalising and hence recycling all the manuals of my facial and beauty devices.

I really really miss the photo management software, Picasa……

It has been more than a year since it stopped updating…  I have been trying very hard to find a replacement but I failed.  Users can actually continue to use the downloaded copy in their pc.  Unfortunately, earlier this year, we changed to a newer computer, which came with a new version of Windows.  So I bade a sad farewell to my favourite software programme.

Since then, photos have been ‘piling’ up, waiting to be organised and collated…  >o<

During my USA vacation, I had time to do some reflections on myself and my daily life.  I felt that I have been procrastinating quite a number of things…  and the management of these digital records is one of them.

So after coming back, I sat down in front of the computer and set to work.  Suddenly there seems to be a lot more options than before and I found myself more willing to download trial copies and test each out.  Right now, I think I have found three different softwares that, when used together, can carry out most of the functions of Picasa’s.

I am glad that I tried once again.

What!… Picasa is Dying!

Digitalisation of Photos

I started to have this home-management project idea 3 years ago in 2014. A Mission Almost Impossible (2014)   I gave up in the middle of it.  When I look back, I realise that the scanner I used created a big hurdle to the process.  The whole process was too clumsy, energy-consuming and time-consuming.

Then in 2016, I restarted the project, this time, with a self feeding scanner.  Photo Digitalisation… once again (2016)  Within two weeks or so, I managed to finish scanning ALL my photo prints.  It is a huge success to me.  I am feeling a lot more secured as all my prints have a digital copy in my computer.In the process of scanning, I found out that there are photos that are stored in the adhesive type of album.  I will damage the photos if I pull them out from their place.  That means I have to scan their negatives.  My friend lent me his film scanner.  Within less than a week, I had all my negatives scanned.

I will give myself a break now.  What follows the break will be the screening of prints – which one to keep and which to discard.

Albums that are probably to keep (photos inside all scanned ^o^)
