    Ugh! Yes, editing photos is one of my time sappers for sure. But, like you, I do not edit all photos. Just the ones I am going to put into my album, scrap or frame!

    Thanks for another lovely pep talk Jennifer! I always leave with a smile and some encouragement!

    Happy Memorial Day! XOXO

    This is a great idea – I’m going to ask Phill about it tonight.

    One thing he’s said in the past is – do I need to print my pages, as he has my flikr account linked to hist computer.

    I think yes I do for the children, but I guess this kinda takes the pressure off me to get everything printed. (I have 100+ pages that need printing!)

    I’m afraid to ask. But I will. I’m not sure they will even know what to tell me. What if they say, “Just stick ’em (pictures) in a magnetic page album and forget all this fancy stuff. ” Well, here goes. I’ll report back with the response. sigh…..

      You don’t have to follow their advice to the letter, but it is certainly helpful for shifting balance in your work towards what they appreciate most. I’m not going to suddenly stop editing photos – because I appreciate and enjoy photography – but I will focus on getting photos into their hands a bit faster.
