Photographs are memories that we have and they capture a moment in time that will never happen again. Without photos, you will only be able to visualize what you remember from the event and you will not have any piece of existence of that memory.
Many people look at photos as they reminisce about their life or they show photos to others when they want to let someone know what their relatives looked like or what they looked like as a baby. You can document any part of your life from a failure to an achievement through a photograph.
Since photos are so important, it is vital that you properly store them to ensure they last over the years. If you do not, then you will find that the image is faded and sometimes completely gone by the time you recover the photos.
- Gather Your Photos and Sort Them
The first step in the process is to gather all of your photos and place them into one big pile. You should grab any photo albums you have and remove the phots from them, especially if they are the sticky album sheets. The glue on these sheets often eat through the photograph and ruin it over long periods of time.
Once you have all of your photos, separate them into memories or time periods. For example, you could have a pile that is from when you were an infant and then a pile from one of your achievements.
