FotoBridge, the national photo scanning service based in NJ, recently teamed up with the Association of Personal Photo Organizers (APPO) for a fun, interactive social event in Cherry Hill, NJ. The two hour seminar entitled "Got Photos? Get Organized!" was held at the Cherry Hill Library and attracted many from the greater-Philadelphia area. Michelle Nahom, APPO Marketing Manager and Julie Ann Morris, President of FotoBridge, led an engaging and insightful discussion focused on practical ways to regain control and organize a lifetime of memories.
From scanning photos and digitizing slides to simple ways to organize using the "ABCs" of photo organizing, the evening provided everyone a place to start telling their stories with photos. Many people today are re-discovering how photos tell their family stories, but with the advent of digital and the volume of images available to tell those stories - many become overwhelmed and frustrated. Digitizing and preserving family heirloom collections of old analog photo prints, slides, movie film and video is also top-of-mind for many as treasured memories, trapped in old media, deteriorate with each passing day.
The "Got Photos? Get Organized!" local event was all about sharing ideas and practical solutions straight from the professionals at APPO and FotoBridge. For information about future events, contact APPO here or FotoBridge here.
