It was so easy.
Then Sparky got a digital camera. I wasn’t willing to let go of my camera, so we had two modes of pictures happening, I had to put the thumbscrews to Sparky so that he would download the pictures and order them as prints so I could album-ize them and chronolog-ize them with my own pictures.
It was so complicated.
Then my camera broke, and I had to give in. We still ordered hard copy prints and put them in albums, but it was much more complicated and I had to rely on someone else. Kind of a spiritual journey I guess.
Anyway. A couple of years ago we started doing photobooks. So cool.
And it is so easy.
Believe me, if I can do it, anyone can. we use My Publisher, and have been really pleased with the results and the service. Technical support is readily available, and problems are dealt with quickly, efficiently and politely. At any rate, I can do it. So now we have a photo date every 3-6 months and make up an album. And it arrives at our door in 3 or 4 days.
But. The coolest part of all is that over the years (decades, now) our kids have spent hours and hours and HOURS looking at the photo albums and learning our story. And now the story continues in on digital, custom, online, weighs one tenth of the old version, takes up one tenth of the space of the old version photo albums to pour over.
I’m so catching up.
