Save Your Photos Month gives the public access to experts who share their knowledge through over 25 mini-classes, tutorials, and live discussions. Classes cover topics such as preserving your family history, managing photo privacy, new apps for photos and videos, insider tips on Apple Photos, and more.
Save Your Photos Month is orchestrated by The Photo Managers, the leading educational community in the rapidly growing profession of photo management. Founded in 2009, The Photo Managers provides valuable resources, education, and support to its members and the broader community. The Photo Managers play a crucial role in promoting best practices, offering expertise in photo organization, preservation, and digitization, and helping individuals navigate the challenges of managing their photo collections in the digital age.
Cathi Nelson, the founder and CEO of The Photo Managers organization, said, “Many people feel overwhelmed by the vast number of photos they accumulate. The Save Your Photos month-long event aims to simplify photo preservation by offering expert advice with easily digestible information.”
The Photo Managers have been offering free classes during September for nine years, focusing on new ways to protect photos. The event coincides with National Preparedness Month in the US, with a focus on preparing for extreme weather events and other disasters. Experts like DeMorrow and her peers provide support for those who want to save their print photos, their digital photos, and important family documents and keepsakes, no matter what life brings.
“Irreplaceable family photos are at risk from fire, water damage, and neglect, but they don’t have to be,” said DeMorrow. “Everyone has special photos in a closet, drawer, or ancient computer. Save Your Photos Month helps people decide on the right next step to preserve those special photos for the next generation.”
Free registration is open at SaveYourPhotos.org through September. Registrants can watch recorded classes through October 2023.
