10 Ways to Get the Most From Your Digitized Family Memories

Did you protect a collection of old photographs, video, or audio recordings that hold precious moments by having them digitized? Making the decision to have your memories digitized allows you to easily watch and enjoy the moments you hold so close to your heart, without worrying about outdated technology or ruined tape. The possibility of what to do with your new digitized files are endless!

Discover 10 ways to get the most from your digitized family memories.

  1. Create a backup. Before doing anything with your new files, we suggest creating a backup for extra caution. Even though your memories are now digitized, it’s always best to have an extra set stored onto an iCloud, CD, or thumb drive.
     

  2. Throw a Celebration! Having the opportunity to share your memories with family is one of the best features of digitization! Whether it’s a casual BBQ or wedding anniversary, creating a slideshow of your favorite pictures is a great conversation starter.
     

  3. Print some Copies. Now that you have easy access to your new photos, making copies has never been easier. Print some for family members or friends involved, or share them as a birthday gift in a scrapbook!
     

  4. Make T-Shirts. Get creative this family reunion by making old school T-shirts with the best picture on the front. With help from a local printer, you can easily get any image on a T-shirt.
     

  5. Share on Social Media. Facebook is a great tool for staying connected with friends and family members that live far away. Sharing your images online is a fun way to go down memory lane with an old friend or long-distance relative!
     

  6. Design a Photo Release Plan. If you’re a marketing professional, then you understand how any advertising campaign requires meticulously planning on a calendar. Creating a release plan will maximize the social capital return on your shared moments and memories.
     

  7. Email to Family and Friends. Although social media is a great platform for sharing, some friends and family members don’t use Facebook. Email is a great alternative for sharing photos, audios, and movies!
     

  8. Create a Youtube Channel. With YouTube still on the rise, what better way to share videos of your family memories? Creating a YouTube channel allows you to share any video with the option to share to others or keep it private for only yourself.
     

  9. Make a Music Video. One hobby this generation loves is making music videos. Maximize the emotional feel of nostalgia with your old school, newly digitized film for the best music video.
     

  10. Save for (Fun) Revenge. Holding a precious, funny, embarrassing memory of your sibling? Whipping out the video of your sister singing home karaoke in her pajamas is perfect for her wedding party.

Getting your memories digitized is highly encouraged, and an easy way to preserve memories for years to come. Be sure to share them with loved ones after the digitizing process!
