If there’s one factor I’ve discovered in my virtually eight months of being a mother is that WOW … I TAKE A LOT OF PHOTOS OF MY KID. I feel each mother feels this manner! I attempt to keep considerably organized and again them up, however that doesn’t matter to me practically as a lot as truly printing them out to maintain for years to return! Irrespective of how organized your dropbox or arduous drives are, it’s not as particular to look via as a photograph guide. So I’m starting the behavior now of catching up on my books as soon as a season or so.
This publish is sponsored by Canon USA. I used their app hdAlbum EZ to create this complete album in lower than half-hour. Loopy, proper?! It was really easy.

To create my album, I first put all my trip photographs right into a folder on my telephone. I discover that’s the best method to get all of them collectively earlier than importing. If you choose out of your digital camera roll, it’s too straightforward to by chance seize an unedited photograph as an alternative of an edited one, so I like to recommend making a folder in your telephone prematurely with all of the photographs you wish to use and double checking them.
Subsequent, I simply uploaded them to the app and it mechanically organized them right into a pre-made template for me. I swapped just a few pictures round and altered a full to full web page (I LOVE full-page pictures in my books). All I did for textual content was add a title to the entrance of the guide (which additionally reveals on the backbone). I didn’t add any textual content to the guide in any respect. To be completely sincere, that is my desire 90% of the time. I don’t like quite a lot of texts in my books as a result of I really feel like it may possibly take away from the photographs. That mentioned, there are some books, like Nova’s adoption story, the place some textual content is important. If you’re going to write quite a lot of textual content, I like to recommend typing it out prematurely and having it proofread (typos are so pesky and no software program catches all of them!).
Listed below are a number of the inside pages of our guide! This was our first household trip to California in March. We went to Disney with household for a pair days after which went to Palm Springs with simply the three of us for a protracted weekend. It was a beautiful first trip and I’m so comfortable to have the reminiscences documented on this guide!
Thanks a lot for studying!!! This guide is now sitting on our shelf with all our different household reminiscences. Proper the place it needs to be!
I undoubtedly advocate Canon’s app, hdAlbum EZ, in case you are seeking to save time and make books straight out of your telephone! xx – Elsie
