You will inevitably have a stack of photos that you'd like to scan for safekeeping. Before you scan, research the best option for storing them digitally.
An external hard drive or flash drive: Create folders that mimic the categories you've already created so that the digital images stay organized.
A cloud service: Once your collection is in the cloud with a service such as iPhoto, Flickr or Shutterfly, you can easily share memories with loved ones near and far.
CDs: These are great for keeping multiple backups and handing over a photo collection to a friend or family member.
Once you've organized your photos, you'll have a better idea of what you'd like to display (as everything will be searchable). A wall of your favorite photos displayed salon style is a great way to showcase your collection. Whatever you decide, you can rest easy knowing that your memories are preserved for posterity.
