You finally decided to take that camping trip with your family or on your own and enjoyed your time there. Even better, you took so many photos and are looking for the best ways to preserve these memories forever. Well, here are some of the best ideas on how to preserve your camping memories.
What To Consider:
When preserving your camping photos, you need to consider temperature, ventilation, moisture and lighting. With these factors in check, you can always make sure that your photos don’t fade, wear or tear and stay in a good condition for a long time. When looking for the best places to store your photos, you should avoid areas such as the garage, attic and basement. You should consider closets, cabinets, under the bed or anywhere else with proper climate control.
Additionally, you can always rent a self-storage unit to store your photos. Of course, you need to make sure the photos are properly organized and don’t settle for a ground floor storage unit which is prone to flooding. Most people choose boxes or envelopes to store their photos but there are some rules you need to consider when doing this.
For instance, make sure you find the envelopes or boxes in the right fit. Additionally, make sure that the photos are placed in flat containers to remain straight through out. Don’t overfill the boxes or envelopes because it might ruin them with time. You can add some dividers (most preferably non-acidic) to make sure the photos don’t stick to each other.
On the other hand, if you’re using photo albums for organization, you should avoid using adhesives since they contain acids that might damage the quality of the photos. Make sure the photos are placed in a well-fitting and flat sleeve and don’t stuff too many photos in one album sleeve.
