I'm all about preserving and sharing your photos and memorabilia, but I also know the value and importance of having your entire photo collection organized, digitized and safely stored. That's why I became a member of and Certified Pro with The Photo Managers.
Well... Did you know that September is not only about a new school year, pumpkin spice everything, and Fall's official start? It is also Save Your Photos Month .
Now in its 8th year, Save Your Photos Month, with free classes and useful tips for organizing and enjoying family memories, is a worldwide event to help families organize, preserve, share and celebrate their photo & video memories.
This year the theme is Do You Know?
Each week during the month features a new theme with mini-classes and discussions based around that topic. I know it's already mid-September, but it's still not too late to register! There's still two weeks and all the presentations and materials will be available for viewing until October 31st.
Every Monday morning during September, you will receive an email detailing all the amazing content, offerings, and presentations for that week. Experts worldwide share expertise in over 30 mini-classes, tutorials, and live discussions. Classes include tips on preserving your family history, choosing the best scanner, insider tips on Apple Photos, and more!
Here is the list of topics by week (and don't forget, you can go back and watch any you've missed):

“We live in an increasingly complex technical world; yet, as human beings, we have not changed in our need to connect and remember,” said The Photo Managers Founder and CEO Cathi Nelson. “Yet most people report feeling overwhelmed with the thousands of photos they are accumulating. This month-long event is our effort to help simplify the process by offering expert advice in short bits of information.”
