How To Make Photo Albums 

Do you love going through old photos? Have you thought about preserving your memories in photo albums? Do you want to know how to make a photo album?

In this blog post, we will explore how to make a photo album, how to choose the right photo album and some tips to preserve your photos for decades to come. 

Making a photo album isn’t about storing photos in an album haphazardly. A photo album should have a purpose and a theme. It should be an organised collection of photos that tells a complete story. 

How To Make The Perfect Photo Album

1). Choose a Theme 

The first step in the process is to choose the theme. It could be an album from a party, a holiday, your travel photos around the globe, your wedding photos or a photo album full of your family history. It could also be an album related to your hobbies such as fashion, cooking or sports. Everybody has a different reason for making a photo album.

2). Get Things Organised

Choose the photos you want to be a part of your photo album. The next thing you need to do is get the photos printed. 

Research various options and choose a reputed photo printer to get the photos done. Pay special attention to customer reviews. 

Choose a printing service that pays special attention to colours and details. After choosing a printing service, choose the paper and size you want.

3). Choose a Photo Album

All kinds of albums are available in the market at various price points. If you don’t know much about the quality of photo albums, it is going to take a bit of time to make the right choice.

Don’t choose an album based on its price or design alone. There are two main roles of a photo album: one is to provide a way to organise photos and the other is to protect those photos from deterioration.

There are various formats of a photo album such as a square, portrait, or landscape, among others. Ideally, you should choose a photo album with options for both portrait and landscape formats as some photos look good in portrait mode whereas others are meant for landscape mode.

There are both softcover and hardcover options. Both have their uses but if you want to keep your photos for a long time, a hardcover is a better choice.

Photo albums are made from a variety of materials. Choose one made from non-acidic material to protect the photos.

4). Choose the Right Cover

Choose a cover for the photo album that is in line with the theme covered in the album.

How to Take Care of Your Photo Album

You have spent a lot of time and money on building a photo album. Once you are happy with the final result, and once you have seen the photos a few times, you will want to store it safely for others to enjoy.

It wouldn’t be wrong to think of photo albums as a time capsule for future generations. This is why you can’t just keep your photo album anywhere and expect the photos to stay unblemished. 

Here are a few tips on how to care for your photo album and preserve the photos for decades to come:

  • Make sure the photo album is always stored face up on a clean and smooth surface.
  • In order to preserve the photographs in the album, keep it in a dark place where there isn’t too much light.
  • Keep it protected from locations with high temperatures or too much temperature fluctuation such as a garage.
  • Keep it away from moisture. Ideally, the relative humidity should be between 15% to 65%.
  • Make it a habit to take the album out once in a while to clean it.
  • Make sure your hands are dry when you are handling the album.

Final Thoughts

Making a photo album is a great way to preserve your memories for future generations. A photo album doesn’t always have to be about family history or weddings. People make photo albums for a variety of reasons such as their holidays, travel through a particular country, hobbies, time with pets, kids growing up and various other reasons.

Wonderful experience. I first went into the store very tentatively, not sure if I ‘needed’ a custom made frame, however, having Victor’s consultative input on the different frame designs and customisable feature was so valuable. In the end Victor helped create a beautiful frame for my father in law’s memorial service sheets. As you can imagine, this was a sensitive thing to put in someone else’s hands but the team treated everything with such care and the finished product looks amazing.Thanks guys, would 100% recommend.read more

#aboveandbeyond Victor and the Photoland team produced the most fantastic framed photo gift for me to surprise my partner with. They combined the half marathon medal and number with a photo from the finish line - the end product far surpassed my expectations . Real customer service, great communication - no wonder they are the only photo framing place in the CBD. I cannot recommend them highly enough. Thanks again Victor.read more
