Don’t miss … Special Graduation Discount …

Graduation 2018 is almost here!

Free Graduation Cap Clip Art Pictures - Clipartix

Today is a day of “gratitude”.  I’m so thankful for my God, my family and friends and my clients, each and everyone of you are special to me.  As we go through life and in the end this is all that really matter.  I’m so blessed.  What got me to thinking about this is; my nephew is going to see his adopted sister for the first time in three years and he is so excited. As we were talking about it, he said to me, “I’m going to take lots of pictures so you can make me one of our books.” I’ve made him a couple so that he can keep people close to him that are special and he loves the books even though he is 18 years old.

I’m telling you this because don’t discount the fact that when your children go off to college, they would love to take their friends and family with them. This is a wonderful way to do that.  These photo books are great for them to have handy if they get a little lonesome.

Cybercriminals and Strong Passwords

clip artTechnology is in our lives to stay and so are the cyber criminals.  I try to keep up to date on as much of technology as I can so I read articles on the Kim Komando website.  Today she had an article on strong passwords, and you might be surprised by what she had to say.  Have you heard of “Passphrases”?  They are actually better at keeping you secure.  It really makes a lot of sense.  Read More

Photo Book Designs are digital books, therefore I’m on my computer all the time.  So guess who will be changing to “passphrases”.  Hope you enjoy the article.

Traveling….check this out

I was doing some research today and came across this article.  What an interesting concept.  As we are taking our summer vacations and snapping those pictures (to make a photo book) we can also think of others.  Since most of us don’t own a hotel, why not take an extra plastic bag and every time we leave a hotel we take the soap that we have opened bring it home.  Then send it off to these people for recycle.  What a way to help people and our environment!  I hope you will read the entire article, it is very informative.  Happy Summer….and don’t forget to take lots of pictures, make a digital photo book when you get home, and share it.  If you don’t want to do the work to make a photo book then just contact me.  www.photobookdesigns.com

All your used hotel soap gets melted down here and sent to 3rd world countries
By Marianna Kheyfets

Soap

Have you ever wondered where hotel soap goes after you use it once? Most people would assume it gets tossed in the trash and never give it a second thought. Well, Shawn Seipler isn’t most people. This very random question led him to become one of the biggest global hygiene entrepreneurs in the world.

I did some research and figured out that we are throwing away a million bars of soap every single day out of hotels across the U.S.

captureGraduation time is here again!

It is time to be thinking of a great personalized gift for your special graduate.  Graduation is an important milestone in life’s journey.  Why not show them how far they have come in just a few short years by giving them a photo book of their life this far.  They can enjoy the photos, articles, and adventures that have happened since they came into this world. It is a good way of keeping family and friends close when the graduate leaves the nest and starts the next phase of their life.  This is a one of a kind gift that they will cherish for years to come.

You can make this gift, however when will you have the time?   All you have to do is get the photos and articles to me.  The book will take about a month to create and mail to you (if you are in Lubbock you can pick it up).  Get your photos and articles together now, then call me and schedule a time to talk.

Please check out my website for all the pricing information https://photobookdesigns.com/  There you will find all kinds of interesting ideas and don’t forget Mother’s Day is also coming up soon.  If you reference this article you will receive free scanning on 20 of your paper photos or articles.

Sharing Photos through iCloud

telephone-cartoon

How far we have come from the 1800’s type of phone to the cell phone.  With the invention of the cell phone we started a new revolution of people taking more and more photos.  One of the problem for many is: how do I share those photos with the ones I love?  If you are using an iPhone you could use iCloud and most of the newer android phones have a share program.  If you can’t find it you should check where you purchased your phone and get them to help you.

One of Photo Book Designs clients used the iCloud to make a journal album and then is all she had to do was send me the link and I was able to make her a beautiful 11 X 14 coffee table book of her and her son’s four month trip across the US.  She had over 900 photos in her journal making it a fabulous book.  Here is the link to the iCloud website so you can check this out to see if it would be a good fit for you in sharing your photos  http://www.apple.com/icloud/photos/

The iCloud Photo Library stores every photo and video you take, and keeps them up to date on all your devices. Any edits you make are automatically updated everywhere. iCloud Photo Sharing makes it easy to share photos and videos with exactly the people you want to see them. Create a shared album and invite friends and family to add their photos and video clips as often as they want. And you can even take your entire photo collection everywhere without using up all the storage space on your iPhone. Read More

Please watch for a blog on DropShots and DropBox coming in a few days.
