3. Print your favourite photos and frame it.

Nobody wants to deal with the entire stack of the photos whether in a digital or physical form. However, it will be a great ideal to select your favourite photos from the lot and have them printed out on canvas to hang in your home. Most places which offer the canvas printing service will have the product tightly bound over a wooden frame, meaning they are ready to hang as soon as they arrive at your door.

4. Make a mini album.

A mini album is ideal for people who want to save and keep looking on the memorable moments from time to time. You can even go rogue and punch holes in your memorabilia and photo and put them all together.

5. Make a slideshow.

A slideshow complete with video clips soundtracks and photos are also a great idea but time consuming in most cases. However, if you lack the time, just create a simple slideshow with captions. This will also transform your photos to appear like an edited story being told.

Whatever you choose to do with your photos, always remember they are a great memory of your ravel times. Keep them safe and so that your future generations can see them.
