Photo albums for me are a pain in the ass! I mean, I love the memories and I love the photos, but I have having to carry them around when moving and obligating people to flip through the pages of unending landscapes and "funny pictures".
I like creating digital photo albums for my own pleasure, like I shares with you guys on this post, but I also like sharing my small moments with friends when they come over to my house. So I made the decision to create a single photo album for all of my memories, and this is how I did that.
I created 3 simple rules for this:Rule 1 // Number of photos
I decided to stick to a number of photos per event or trip. For the events like birthdays, party's, hang outs.. I decided to only keep 2 that I truly love, and for every trip I will keep 4 photos.
Rule 2 // Make the most use of the space
If in any case I need to add more photos, I decided to place 2 pictures in 1. This means arrange the photos on my computer so that I can fit 2 pictures in a 15 x 20 cm photo.
Rule 3 // Always be honest with myself
I mean, do I really need that pictures of that completely normal looking cake to remind me of my dad's birthday? or that picture of that funny looking rock? I bet not. Cut out the "trash".
