Do you have piles of photographs waiting to be identified and put into albums? Grab a stack and some archival, clear plastic sleeves and curl up in your favorite comfy chair. Start the project by sorting the photos by date into large plastic sleeves, grouping them by event, date, or person, and labeling them as you go. Donâ€™t worry about arranging them and putting them into albums yet. Once you have this presort done, itâ€™s easy to plan the layout of your photo albums. One more tip: Keep some extra empty sleeves around and when you get your photos developed or printed next time, just add them to the sleeves right away and youâ€™ll have this step out of the way.
