And I have. Now I have a bushel of photos I need to put in photo albums. Needless to say, they are still in the packs they came in.
Let's get something straight. I have girlfrieds who are masters at acid free paper piecing creative photo embelishments and display... also know as scrapbooking. I suck at scrapbooking. I'd much rather create things on the computer. Less chances of me messing up and if I do.... I just don't save. *grin* So, ya. I don't scrapbook. Photo albums that have litte sleeves I can't stuff with my children's cute little faces in and are relatively idiot proof seemed to be the way to go.
And still there they sit.
Then one of the companies I printed my pics from, sent me an offer for a free photo book. So I gave it a try. And while I wasn't too happy with that particular companies work (color wise), I liked having all my photos put in a book for me. (Most photo companies will even preload them for you!)
Then a company I DID like sent me a free photo book offer. That company was Shutterfly.com. Well, not completely free, I had to pay shipping. No big. Saved me the price of the book. Shutterfly has been awesome in helping me get all my photos off my computer. That's truly important. And not in a "I have to push this product" kind of way. More in a "Crap! I just lost 5 years worth of pictures of my children! MUST. WARN. OTHERS!" kind of way.
Here's the photobook I just created on their website and will be heading my way in the mail very soon:
I highly recommend Shutterfy. I have been nothing but beyond thrilled with the qualit of their products!
And I'm not just saying that so I can get $10 off my next order. Because quite frankly, if they sucked? I wouldn't go back to use the $10 credit. They really do rock!
Now go! Get those pics of your computer before your hard drive crashes and a small part of you dies inside. No joke! Shutterfly, Snapfish, Photobucket... Poloroid pictures of each one off your screen... WHAT EVER WORKS! Just save your precious pics before they are gone for good.
