Scrapbookers have plenty to consider, but taking care of their photograph prints, negatives or digital files has to be one of the most important.
Photographs are the foundation of scrapbooking. If you’re not taking care of your photo prints, negatives and digital files, you are setting yourself up for future problems.
How many pictures have you sorted through that have been handed down to your trust and care through the years.? Do you have the negatives? Do you know who is in the picture? Where was the snapshot taken, and what does it represent? These are issues each scrapbooker deals with. Are you keeping adequate records and notations on the photographs you have taken?
You plan to pass these precious treasures onto your posterity. Will they find themselves in the same dilemma you were in. Where you can you should sort, identify and catalog each of your pictures.
