These days, photos are easy. With high-quality point-and-shoot cameras prominently featured in nearly every smartphone, you’re likely inundated with photos. In days gone by, most people would print their photos and put them into albums. It was a simple way to preserve their memories of life and family.
Now that most photo memories are digital, it’s easy to lose important pictures in the shuffle. But it doesn’t have to be. In fact, when managed well, preserving family memories has never been easier! Here are some of the best online tools to make sure those all-important memories will always be remembered:
- Flickr.com provides online photo storage that you can organize into albums that can be shared. It’s an especially good tool for creating albums of an activity that you did with your family or friends. Sharing photos is really easy with Flickr, and its introductory service is free to use.
- Instagram is not a photo album by design, but it can be a great way to keep memories alive. It’s among the most popular ways to share photos and thoughts. Instagram lets you edit photos on your device, identify where a photo was taken, tag friends, and add comments. The app is free, with advertisements.
- Google Photos offers free unlimited photo storage. It helps you to organize your photo memories into photo galleries that are simple to navigate. The service will also allow you to create fun collages that can be shared with others. Because Google provides the service, there is little need to tag anything before your photos, albums, and collages are searchable.
- Ancestry.com can help to preserve family memories that are not simply photographic images. When you set up your family tree and add basic details, Ancestry can help you trace your family history. You may even find and preserve some family stories about your ancestors!
