Format & Filing

Question: What format should I use when I scan my photos, cards and artwork?

Answer: Scan all memories into .jpg format. It will help you to use a folder system on your computer. For example:

  1. Family Name folder (i.e. Geary Memories)
    1. Year folder (i.e. 1996)
      1. Event folder (i.e. Michael's birthday)
        1. Photos
          1. b/w
          2. color
        2. Cards
        3. Ribbons
        4. Diary entry
      2. Event folder 2 (i.e. Christmas)
        1. Photographs
        2. Pieces of wrapping paper
        3. Christmas cards

    Using a simple folder system will make it easy for you to go find the photos again and to use in your photo projects.
