by Elisa

The holiday season is more than just a time of festive decorations and delicious meals; it’s a season of making memories that will be cherished for years. As we approach this joyous time of year, there’s no better way to celebrate than by capturing and preserving those special moments with your camera or smartphone. Let’s delve deeper into a couple of expert tips on how to make the most out of your holiday photos, all while harnessing the full potential of Mylio Photos+.

Make Room for New Memories: Delete Old Screenshots Before the Holidays

Old screenshots can easily accumulate, taking up valuable storage space. Mylio Photos+ streamlines this process, allowing you to organize and delete unnecessary files efficiently. By freeing up space, you’ll ensure ample room for capturing and storing the many memories the holiday season is sure to bring.

To do so in Mylio Photos+, go to QuickFilters-> By File-> By File Type-> click and pin screenshot.

Or pick Screenshot Cleanup in Mylio QuickCollections.

Pick and Frame Your Favorite Photos: Curate Your Holiday Home

Mylio Photos+ is not just a photo organizer; it’s your digital curator. Take advantage of its intuitive features to handpick your favorite holiday photos. Whether it’s the joyous expressions during gift exchanges from last year or the beautifully adorned holiday table, Mylio Photos simplifies the selection process, making it a joy to relive and share these moments. Once you’ve chosen your favorites, consider creating a gallery in your home, framing these images to transform your space into a personal holiday exhibit.

To get you started, one quick example is going to QuickFilters-> Visual Properties-> Color-> Red and that should be a good starting point for your past Christmas images.

Preserve Your Memories in Print: Making Them Last as Long as Possible

While digital memories are convenient, there’s an enduring charm to holding physical prints in your hands. To ensure your old prints stand the test of time, consider these comprehensive tips:

  • Note Details on the Reverse: Take a moment to document essential details on the back of each print, such as when and where the photograph was taken and the individuals featured.
  • Store in Photo Boxes: Organize prints in acid-free envelopes within labeled photo boxes for easy access and long-term protection.
  • Traditional Photo Albums: Place prints in plastic sleeves within labeled photo albums, creating a visually appealing and easily accessible archive of your memories.
  • Handle with Care: Minimize direct contact with prints to prevent damage from skin oils, and consider using cotton gloves when handling.
  • Protect from Light: Keep prints out of direct sunlight to prevent colors from fading over time.
  • Control Temperature and Humidity: Maintain a stable environment for your prints by avoiding extremes in temperature and humidity, safeguarding them against deterioration.

And, of course, make sure you have a digital version of your printed photos. We have a free photo-scanning course to help you get started. Click here to access the Mylio Photos Community and get the Course.
