Photo Albums: I think this method of archiving your trip is probably the most used. I try to purchase a photo album on each trip from the parks so as soon as I get my pictures developed, I can organize and add them right away. Of course, on our last 2 trips, there have been three of us taking pictures, which means we have an excessive number of pictures to choose from and sometimes a photo album would just not be big enough. Plus, it would cost quite a bit of money to get all those developed. So, I order my most favorite for the photo album and save the rest for other projects.
Slide shows or Photo Montage movies: I am not talking about the old fashion slide projector, though that would work too if you like that. I am talking about digital slide shows you can create on your computer for viewing on your computer or even your TV. There are several types of software out there you can use to create a movie with corresponding music. I recently downloaded free software from Microsoft and created a movie of our trip using just photos. It is called Windows Photo Story 3. It is not the most efficient software, but it is free and I created a great movie - in my humble opinion - though it was extremely time consuming. I had found a video/photo montage on You Tube of someone else's vacation. I loved it! When I e-mailed the creator, he let me know that he used Pinnacle Studio 12 to create it. I recently purchased the software, and am hoping to load it today and try my hand at creating a movie that not only uses my photos but also my videos. I'll keep you posted on how it goes. Of course, there is so much technology and software out there that you can probably create anything you can imagine by just investing the time and money you need to create it.
I could probably go on and on about how you can archive your photos and videos. Feel free to share how you preserve your memories. If you have a montage on You Tube, feel free to share the link (please make sure it is nothing offensive or I will remove the link). Well, I am off to test out my new software and create yet another great reminder of our trip to the happiest place on Earth - Walt Disney World!
