    that are the best of the best Save about 10 20 items per year per child Keep graded papers until the report card comes home then toss those you don t need as a keepsake 0 Comments Back Up Your Documents with Google Drive 3 27 2013 0 Comments Google Docs Tip of the day Google Drive formerly Google Docs is one of my favorite ways to keep back ups of my documents without having to spend a lot of money on a back up service And now Google has made it even easier to save copies of documents spreadsheets pdf s and even photos with drag and drop uploading You must have a gmail google account to use this service 1 Log into google gmail 2 In the top menu click on Drive If you are using a google apps account you may need to click on more and find documents in the drop down menu 3 You can find your file by going through these 4 steps click upload button click files or folder find file or folder on your computer click on that file or folder OR DO IT THE EASY WAY Drag your file or folder directly into google docs and watch it upload Magic After it is done uploading be sure to add it to a collection folder to make it easier to find again Update 2013 You can now upload photos pdf s and dozens more formats that were not possible to upload before You can only edit those in a format compatible with Google s docs presentations word docs and spreadsheets And now Google Drive is available for your desktop or mobile device so you can get to your documents anywhere easily drop new documents in for back up and create documents without having to log into Google Allison 0 Comments Organize Your Digital Photos 3 27 2013 0 Comments I spent my July 4th day off taking care of some organizing business that I had been putting off because it was such a big job My digital photos have been saved in haphazard ways over time due to crashed computers and they needed to be re organized I am very consistent about downloading photos from my camera and putting them into iphoto and labeling the folder or event as iphoto calls it but I rarely went to the next step categorizing by they way I look for things I had them sorted by year and event But when I look for photos I want to see all the first day of school shots in one place and all the birthdays in one place etc So I set out to organize my photos into albums and these are the categories Family Favorites Birthdays Vacations Holidays My childhood My college 20s Art and other creations House and Home It took me all day and a few more hours to upload all of my photos onto a new website I m trying out called Linea www getlinea com We we is the Association of Professional Photo Organizers like this site because it makes sharing photos very simple and looks amazing on an ipad It also stores your photos in full size Online sites such as Shutterfly and Snapfish do not allow you to download the full original size Google photo and Flickr do Linea is also supposed to also be able to allow me to make photo books which is the end result I want but I can t seem to figure out how to do that yet The bonus for spending all day uploading 3 000 photos into the internet cloud is that I now have a complete back up and I don t have to worry about computer crashes or fires Here are a few quick tips for getting your photos in order 1 Get them off the camera and phone card You can save a copy on the card if you want a back up If you have lost misplaced your cord get yourself a card reader They are less than 20 and worth every penny 2 Put your photos into categories based on how you would look for them in the future Make the albums first then put the photos into the album 3 Delete any photos that totally stink as you work 4 Make an album of photos to fix if you find a lot that need altering And by the way you don t need all day to do this You can work in small bursts of 15 minutes longer sprints of 1 hour or do it in a marathon like me Or you can hire a Professional Organizer me to do it for you see coupon below Digital Life
