It’s hard to believe another year has gone by! As I looked through the digital photos I took last year, I realized that I could be doing much more with my pictures than letting them take up space on my hard drive. If you find yourself in the same situation you might want to try some of these ideas.
For starters, you can customize a slideshow screen saver to display your favorite photos. In the Windows operating system, make a folder with copies of the pictures you want to use, then go to the screen saver settings. Next, choose the My Pictures Slideshow and change the settings to use the folder you just created.
Another great idea is to turn your photos into something you can share with friends and family. A digital scrapbook, a slideshow video of highlights from the year or custom greeting cards would make excellent use of your images. You can create 30-second video slideshows for free at animoto.com, or you can make free invitations, greeting cards, scrapbooks and more with the software at smilebox.com.
