Most of us have a “photo overwhelm problem.” We take lots of pictures, we have multiple cameras and phones in our family, we have boxes of photos from the past, we’ve likely inherited photos from our parents and grandparents, and it never feels easy to sort, organize, locate, or enjoy all those memories and meaningful moments.
Today’s podcast is designed to help you do just that. LearnDoBecome team member and STEP Coach, Jill Adams, is a pro when it comes to digitizing, organizing, and displaying photographs, and I was so excited for the opportunity to interview her! We invite you to listen to the conversation and take notes on the ideas that stand out to you—and if you’d like a printable version of Jill’s step-by-step instructions, click the image below to download your copy!
And if you love what you’re learning and want to organize your whole life, make sure you’re part of our Steps to Everyday Productivity program (STEP). Our introductory class is here!

Hey, April! GREAT to have you back! Missed you! Hope you’re refreshed. ❤
You had mentioned a digital frame that handles email updates – link, please? Did you say “pigeon frame?” Just making sure what to search. Thanks so much!

Lisa Reeves says
Be careful with these, I had one and loved it but somehow it corrupted and I lost a lot of pics that were on it. 🙁
It was so nice to hear your voice again, April! I always get a lift from your podcast no matter what the topic. Organizing my photos and home videos has been on my someday list for years. The upcoming holidays make it seem even more important since I know I’ll be adding even more memories to the collection.
April Perry says
Thank you, Lealani! I am glad this was helpful for you—and I wish you the best with your photo management! Some seasons of life are super full, so it’s nice to know we can work on these projects when we’re ready. ❤️❤️ Have a wonderful week!!

It’s always a work in progress, but it is high priority for me. We have digitized all of our video tapes and they are viewable in a permanent digital home. My kids, husband and I can even view them on our phones and they will ALWAYS be there. It is a relief. I used to do traditional scrapbooking, but now do completely digital. I had our traditional scrapbooks digitized so that I can make copies if need be, and if something ever happens to our home, the memories won’t be gone. Memory keeping is part of my weekly routine (putting photos on the computer, backing up in multiple places, including the permanent online home, deleting from my phone and camera card) and my projects always result in next actions on my context based next actions lists (usually at the computer). I’m even in an accountability group for the memory-keeping on FB. It is one of the most worthwhile time investments for me!
Bernice Lee Washburn says
Would you mind sharing your source for digitizing your video tapes and your traditional scrapbooks? This is on my project list…
Thanks so much!
Stephanie M Koellermeier says
I’m interested in how you digitized your scrapbooks and the other methods you use to keep organized. Thank you!
