Being a Professional Organizer is a passion of mine but being a Personal Photo Organizer “fills my cup!” I love helping people “preserve and share their memories.” Memories are a foundation of families. They are what keep families together strengthening them through the dark and hard times. We need to hold our memories close to our hearts but also share with others. We need to tell our stories and pass down our experiences to our family and friends.
When you see a natural disaster occur and the destruction of a community, people of course are distraught over the loss of their home. But what you hear time and time again is, “my memories. My memories are gone and I can’t replace them.” They wished they had taken better care by preserving them, backing them up, or scanning them.
So here are “10 Compelling Reasons why “Personal Photo Organizers” Are in Demand.” (Published by www.APPO.org )
People take more than 10 billion photos every month, bolstered by the ever-present mobile phone.
That number will grow to over 1 trillion photos in 2015 and 1.3 trillion photos by 2017.
Digital is not the only problem. There are over 1.7 trillion photos stored in albums, attics and shoeboxes waiting to be sorted, scanned and digitized.
Consumers are looking for ways to manage their photo collections but are overwhelmed by the ever-changing array of apps, software and cloud solutions.
While photos are some of the most important files people ever create, most have no backup plan in place.
Most backup systems don’t have redundancies in place. Twenty-two percent of hard drives fail in 4 years and the average life span of a DVD or CD is 2 – 10 years.
People don’t have time to sort through and organize the thousands upon thousands of photos they are accumulating, resulting in a consumer who is overwhelmed and paralyzed.
Kids experience greater self-esteem when they know more about their family history through stories and photos that are passed down and shared.
Dr. Vint Cerf, known as the father of the internet, has warned that as operating systems and software become more sophisticated, documents and images stored using older technology will become increasingly inaccessible. http://www.bbc.com/news/science-environment-31450389
As of 2014, it is estimated there are over 10,000 photo related apps available with many more in development.
Do feel overwhelmed with your digital and/or paper photos?
Do you find yourself with no backup plan?
Do you take photos on your smartphones and not transfer or upload to your computer?
Have you inherited boxes of family photos and you don’t know what to do to preserve them?
Are you one of those individuals that just do not have time to even think about
preserving and organizing these photos?
Do you take photos of your children yet they don’t even see the results of these photos?
Then perhaps, hiring a Personal Photo Organizer would be helpful to at least propel you into action in designed a plan for preserving these precious and important memories.
