Roadblocks in photo management and how to overcome them

We’ve all been there! We finally want to tackle that photo organising project, we’re off to a good start and motivated and then we encounter the first roadblock which stops us in our tracks. Next thing we know: we are procrastinating and the project comes to a halt.

Here are some of the most common roadblocks we have encountered personally and with clients:

  1. Not knowing where to start
  2. Too many photos and pictures everywhere
  3. Too many software options
  4. Deciding whether to scan photos vs negatives
  5. Which is the right scanning equipment?
  6. What to do after you have scanned photos – archive them in albums or boxes?
  7. Do I want my photos in books and in which order? Chronological or just done?
  8. Figuring out dates of undated photos
  9. Tell one person’s story? Or integrate several chronologically?
  10. Time and place to work on a project without interruption

We discuss solutions to all those roadblocks and also invite you to listen to episodes 49 and 106 that are all about how to stop procrastination (see links in related episodes below)! And don’t forget to download our free e-guide about this very topic here!
