Product Description & Information

Now that digital cameras and music players have become so incredibly widespread, a forest of sound and imagery is blossoming in our homes. We've got digital pictures in the camera, scans on the computer, JPEGS attached to e-mails, and tunes on tiny players. But there's also the old-fashioned stuff: photos in shoeboxes, videos in the attic, documents in desk drawers, songs on tape and vinyl. How do you transform all of these different elements into a convenient archive you can store in your computer, easily reach, and actually enjoy? This book delivers basic step-by-step instruction on streamlining and organizing your "digital life" so you can find what you need instantly and create presentations your friends and family will love. In addition, you'll be amazed at the decrease in household clutter and paper waste.

For everyone -- from teenagers who thrive on the technical to families with overflowing photo albums and seniors who'd love to collate decades' worth of letters and pictures -- this reader-friendly source has all the answers. These easy-to-follow solutions can truly enhance and simplify the hectic, over-saturated lives so many of us find ourselves leading today. 192 pages.

    Important book

    Love that it reviews all options for organizing and RIDDING ourselves of all the stuff that we keep. Just know that I will be weeding down several generations of photos so that my nephew and his family will never have to throw them away becuase they don't know the people in the photos. I especially appreciate the parts about storage of digital files.

    A Hidden Gem!

    OK - let me step up on my soapbox :) This book is amazing... At first I was very intimidated and thought I'd never get my head around technology and digital media, outside what I already know and deal with on a daily basis. External hard-drive??? What's that? Flash drive? Still don't get it - but this book - WOW!

    In order to avoid overwhelm, I just started with the chapter on photograph storage - 'cause I'm a scrapbooker and thats what I immediately want to learn about and to apply to my life, right? Then I went back and read the rest of the book and learned some REALLY awesome things about digital media and how to condense my "paper life."

    The relatively small section on photographs provides SO MANY tips and tricks for understanding digital formats, scanning, restoring, organizing, tagging, and printing photos, and dozens of other useful information that really allows me the freedom to do it myself, and/or provides me the realization that I need help from photo professionals. It includes a prioritizing system that will help you know what is most important to get done NOW and what can WAIT. This book will help you set goals and direct you to what you need in order to accomplish those goals.

    Honestly - I can't say enough about this book. It's the light at the end of a long, dark tunnel for me... I finally feel like I can explore what I have, digitize it, and keep it organized and protected from natural disaster. Heirlooms can be preserved forever and copied 100 times over if needed. Plus, the huge bonus with this book is that it's not exclusive to scrapbooking - so once you've mastered and organized your photos, you can move on to other important household documents, old videos and DVD's, MP3 data and music (even digitizing those old vinyl records), and this book goes the extra mile and tells you how to destroy personal information you don't want anyone else to get a hold of - ever.

    It's simply a wonderful resource that no home should be without in this digital age.
