You probably have years of photos filling your cellphone, and you worry that you will lose them. Or you want to share cherished memories of a vacation or a family event with friends and family. Perhaps you love doing nature photography and want the world to see your art. And how many of you have albums or shoeboxes filled with photos that you would like to digitize and share? Whatever your photo situation is, I will help you – from downloading, storing, and organizing your digital photos and digitizing your printed photos, to creating wonderful online photo albums.
I am not a professional photographer, but I’ve been photographing the people and world around me since the 1970s, starting with my parents’ Brownie Hawkeye, then moving on to a Kodak Instamatic with film cartridges. I finally purchased a Canon 35-millimeter SLR camera and an underwater point-and-shoot for scuba trips. Since then I’ve progressed through multiple models of digital SLRs and point-and-shoots. I also began building photo-sharing websites in the days of Prodigy and AOL, coding HTML by hand. Photo sharing websites and social media weren’t available, so I built my own photo galleries using PHP and CGI scripts.
About This Website
My aim is to make aDigitalPhotoAlbum.com a practical resource for digital photo management and sharing. This is not a website about photographic technique. The majority of articles will pertain to the creation of online albums for your digital photos. But I will also cover related topics, like how to organize and store those digital photos; transferring your older negatives, prints, and slides into digital format; and creating slideshows. I will even look at more-recent innovations like using Roku devices to share photos and create screensavers for your TV.
Let Me Hear From You
If you have any feedback or questions on any of my articles, or if you have suggestions for topics you would like to see covered, I would love to hear from you. Please comment on the posts or use this website’s feedback form. I will try my best to help, but keep in mind that I’m unable to provide extensive technical help on a one-on-one basis. Thanks for visiting!
