Spring Cleaning - Tips to Getting Your Photos Off Your Phone

Spring Cleaning - Tips to Getting Your Photos Off Your Phone

spring cleaning tips mixbook Come spring we all know we’re supposed to launder the curtains and air out our closets, but what about our tech? How do we spring clean technology?

When it comes to photos, we collect hundreds, thousands, even tens of thousands of photographs on our phones and computers. But then what? It’s not like the old days when we printed them out at the local developing kiosk. Enter Mixbook’s Spring Cleaning Guru…

Dear Spring Cleaning Guru,

I have all these great shots of our family ski trip. What should I do with them?

Dear 200 Pictures in Aspen,

Great problem – easy solution. Mixbook can help you download your photos right onto our website and organize them into a photo book of your choice. Not only do we have about a zillion styles to choose from, but also our easy to use software lets you create a book lickety split. You can flip through pages of dad falling off the ski lift and you sneaking away to drink hot chocolate before you can even say Ski Trip 2017…

Happy Photo Booking!

Dear Spring Cleaning Guru,

I caught a shot of my grandfather at his 99th birthday with the sun setting and a cake blazing with, wait for it, 99 candles. I kid you not. I’ve had it on my tablet for months, but printing it out just doesn’t seem momentous enough. Any advice?

Dear Picture Inferno,

Get that picture out into the world! It sounds legendary. My advice would be to extinguish that pesky feeling of procrastination and check out Mixbook’s canvas prints. They come in an array of sizes and you can upload the photo you want to showcase right onto an actual canvas. It’s wall ready and a great decorating idea. But don’t forget to make one for your grandfather too. I think he’d really appreciate your talent and the fiery memory.

Keep Snapping,

The Spring Cleaning Guru

Dear Spring Cleaning Guru,

My husband and I got married in February. At our wedding we had little digital cameras on the tables for guests. I’ve flipped through them and can’t believe some of the awesome candid shots our friends captured. But now months have gone by and I haven’t done anything with them. What should I do?

Dear Newly Married and Stumped,

First of all, what a great idea! I bet you’ve got some blackmail material on those cameras too, am I right?

Second of all, I’d take a two-prong approach to this spring cleaning problem. You definitely want to make a fun photo book to immortalize your guests’ creativity… but what about making some fun cards too? Or even a calendar? If you haven’t already sent out your thank-you cards, some candid shots could be a really personal touch. Mixbook has a ton of photo cards that can help you achieve this. On the other hand, 12 months of photographs on your kitchen calendar would be one heck of a happy year. I’d love to wake up to that each day. Whatever you choose, clean out those cameras once and for all. You’ll feel so much better when you do it.

Happy first year of marriage!

Best,

The Spring Cleaning Guru

Dear Spring Cleaning Guru,

I just attended my cousin's graduation and his mom/my aunt made me snap so many photos, I don't know where to start! These are such important memories and I don't think she's very tech savvy if I tried to email them. What's a great way to share them with her and also my cousin?

Sincerely,

Conflicted Cousin

Dear Conflicted Cousin,

Congrats to your cousin for this momentous achievement! Yes, not all relatives are tech savvy or know how to set up Photo Sharing on their iPhones. That's totally ok, because our Mosaic photo books are the best photo book solutions for mobile devices. Pick your favorite 20 photos from the ceremony and turn the photos into an easy grad gift for your cousin! You could even order two, one for your aunt. They're so affordable and easy, you'll find yourself making many more in the future. I guarantee no one else will gift your cousin something as unique as this!
