Now back to our story . . .
I maintain both a Family Media Library (all the images from our slide and print scan project as well as the more recent images received from my parents, siblings and extended family members) and a Personal Media Library (all my images relating to my travel and genealogy research) with Memory Manager. How I organize my Personal Media Library is a story for another day/blog.
- As a result of organizing in Memory Manger, I can quickly find, use and share our family images for digital projects. Some recent examples include
- framed prints/posters of family photographs as wall art
- digital photo albums (now that we have scanned our photos we are making our scrapbooks digitally; we are working on an updated family recipe/history book)
- 2012 calendar that includes family photos and birthdays/anniversaries
This is StoryBook Creator's Workspace - note the page elements on the left,
the workspace in the center where photos and captions are added the page being worked on,
and the album pages and selection of paper and embellishments on the right
Creative Memories’ website lists their products as well as several video tutorials and pdfs (for those who like to read and watch how to do something) that clearly explain step by step how to do a variety of things (backing up media, editing photos, organizing and printing & sharing your photos). Check out their pdfs here. I think these are great whether you use their products or apply the lessons to your own software program.
