Tips on How to Display Your Best Family Photos

A family most likely has a lot of great memories that they will want to cherish, however it is not easy to always have to print out digital images and make scrapbooks whenever great memories are made. Luckily there are many easy ways that you can easily display those great favorite family memories.

Special photo boxes are a great way to store pics without the headache of putting all the pictures in albums or making scrapbooks. Pics put in keepsake photo boxes will not need to conform to special photo dimensions and the great thing about memory boxes is that you can include keepsakes, such as ticket stubs or cocktail napkins, with your memorable pictures!

With special keepsake boxes you also don’t have to make a photo box for each occasion. You may dedicate one photo box for the entire year and collect all of your favorite pics of the year in its own keepsake box. Other family members can contribute to the keepsake box and add their favorites memories too. Having a memory box symbolizing an entire year may also permit it to be much easier if you end up really wanting to make a photo scrapbook or album down the road. You may have all you need in one easy-to-find place!

Another easy option to keep your favorite photos fresh is to keep a special bulletin board or French board up in the kitchen or family room. Family photographs can easily be shown-off and taken down without all the extra hassle of rearranging a photo album. A special board provides you a dedicated space to show off special photos and keepsakes. Many people also decide to show their most favorite recent pictures on their fridge using cool magnets. No matter what, using a spot where you can enjoy your best family pictures each day is so much better than having the memories hidden away and forgotten in an album.

Digital picture frames could be the newest and easiest way to to rotate and display recent family photos. Just about all digital photo frames simply require that you insert a thumb drive of pictures into the photo frame and it will start up a rotating slideshow with the simple simple flip of a switch! Lots of digital frames can hold up to several hundred photos, so you will not be seeing the same photos repeatedly.

The family pictures could be adjusted to match the occasion too. If it is a special event, such as Christmas time, perhaps you can insert a memory stick that includes exclusively photographs from past Christmas holidays. The great thing about digital picture displays is that you and your family don’t need to develop hundreds of pictures, instead you only need to download all your favorite photos that you want onto a USB drive and let the photo frame do the work!

An alternate way to electronically display your most loved images is to set your computer screensaver to display your most favorite pics when it goes to sleep. If you have a laptop that is hooked up to your TV set, then this could be a easy way to show off your best family images easily. With a few clicks, you’ll have your favorite photos up and changing every time your laptop sleeps, it does not get much easier than that.

Displaying your most memorable family images is a wonderful way to keep the fun memories fresh. Most of these ideas can also be make great gifts for extended members of the family who might not live nearby. The grandparents may appreciate a keepsake box with a year’s worth of photographs gifted to them every holiday season. You could simply need to make extra copies when developing your most favorite photographs.

Digital photo frames uploaded with great memories may also make wonderful wedding anniversary gifts for your husband or wife. If you are stumped on when to give such a gift, then consider checking out wedding anniversary gifts by year to see which year would be appropriate to present a digital frame or wooden photo box of memories.

To compete and grow strong communities, it is essential to create an online experience where members can share information, connect, and have access to content.

At this conference, Wyndstorm will demonstrate how technology and online marketing dramatically improve results for organizations wanting to build lasting relationships between community members; create strong support communities; and engaged constituents in the market. The Wyndstorm turn-key solution provides community and faith-based organizations with pre-built, proven applications, including social networking, podcasts, profiles, interactive games, 3-D virtual environments, and audio-visual chat.

Site security is a priority. Wyndstorm uses effective techniques for keeping members of social networks safe, including ‘fencing’ to keep out site-crashers, and ‘positive identification’ to ensure predators are unable to pose as someone they are not. We can even track keywords in order to moderate the tone of site communications,” said Sabety.

“Today, communication, connectivity, and rich content are vital online considerations for all religious and faith-based organizations,” Sabety continued. “We are thrilled to be a part of this important niche segment event to share ways to enhance a religious community’s strength and presence in their market. We are pleased to present our services and expertise at NRB 2008, a group that respects and supports family value programming.”
