Declutter Your Photo Life

Now more than ever, we hold our photo collections dear. They are often some of our most prized possessions. Wouldn’t it be great to finally have all your photos organized, safe, accessible, findable, and shareable? With Declutter Your Photo Life by your side, you have just what you need to achieve photo bliss.

Photographers and family historians understand the immense power that photographs have to convey meaning, emotion, and memory. We cherish both old film photos that were handed down by previous generations and our latest digital photos captured on the newest smartphone. But when those priceless memories are unorganized and scattered every which way—on a smartphone, on a laptop, on memory cards and flash drives, on two or three photo sharing websites, in photo albums, and in shoeboxes in the attic—the joy of photography becomes an overwhelming burden. What a mess!

Whether you’re a professional photographer, a casual shooter, or the designated family historian, Declutter Your Photo Life will help you organize and enjoy your photos once again. In this book, professional photo organizer, photographer, and author Adam Pratt teaches you his straightforward step-by-step workflow that, along with powerful image-organizing software such as Adobe Lightroom Classic, will have you taking complete control and creating a calming order out of your photo chaos. And once you’ve mastered Adam’s system—Gather, Preserve, Organize, Share, Maintain—you’ll be able to enjoy and share your photos today and for generations to come.

Memories: A Visual Guide to Photo, Video, and Audio Formats Volume #2

Every photo project should start with gathering all your photo and video memories in one place. This gathering phase helps you grasp the scope of your project and consider what it will take to digitize and preserve your memories. To help you identify the different photo and video formats in your collection, I wrote Memories: A Visual Guide to Photo, Video, and Audio Formats Volume #2.

This 100+ page visual guide to photo and video formats spans almost 200 years, including more than 100 actual-size reproductions that are old and new, common and obscure, analog and digital, tapes and reels, prints and negatives, wacky and wonderful. Interesting history and exact dimensions of every format make visual identification fast and easy.

There are two versions for you to choose from:
