With today’s modern technology we literally have more pictures than we know what to do with. But is all this snapshot-taking really improving our memories?
Well, the simple answer is—not if you’re not displaying them. Putting your memories on display is the key to meaningful photography, and digital picture frames are the perfect venue. This is why our digital picture frame store is a popular source for gifts for family and friends.
If you’ve received a digital picture frame to display your memories, but are unsure how to organize them—here are a few great ideas for your digital photo playlists.
1. Chronological Events
One of the most effective ways to digitally organize and display your photos is in chronological order. While everyone’s life events will be slightly different (and in different order), that’s what makes your frame’s story unique to you.
Adding a single picture to represent each year of your life is an effective visual way to display your memories. It is similar to creating an aging flipbook, showing how you’ve grown and matured over the years.
For many dedicated parents, it makes sense to create a “lifetime in pictures” for each of their children. Of course, this simply wasn’t possible before the invention of digital picture frames (otherwise you’d need endless shelving), but it is now. By dedicating one digital picture frame to each child, you can showcase their growth and life events in a single space. Example events would be their birth, subsequent birthdays, and major events (first steps, first day of school, graduation, etc.).
Displaying a wedding picture in a traditional frame is nice, but doesn’t truly document your marriage. If you’ve already been married for a number of years (don’t worry husbands—we won’t quiz you on exactly how many) then create a digital picture frame full of important events. These could include:
- Anniversaries (if you’ve been married a long, long time you may want to just include the bigger ones
- Renewing vows
- Birth of children
- Honeymoon and other major trips
These days, we take so many pictures–more than we know what to do with. There’s no need to hide them. You shouldn’t have to feel pressured about choosing the best five to display out of thousands. What’s more, there’s something to be said for seeing a photo in a larger format (rather than on a phone screen). Sharing your memories makes them more vivid for you, and can make past years feel like they happened yesterday.
