“The years teach much which the days never know”- definitely each year is like a chapter in the book of life. As soon as a year is over there are so many retrospectives released mostly based on the life of sports and entertainment stars. But what about reviewing your own year! You can do the same with the help of the pictures that you have taken all round the year. The photobooks lets you select some of the best pictures and create a memorabilia of sorts for yourself. Often there are so many remarkable events in a year and these memories get lost with time. But if you have preserved the pictures in your photobook then you can relish the memories later on.

One of the obstacles faced by the people while creating their yearly photobook is how to select the pictures? So below are some of the tips that will help you in your quest:

  • Noteworthy Events: Try and remember the noteworthy things that happened in the bygone year. Life changing events are a good way to start the selection of pictures. There are events that you have been witness to such as – showers, weddings, moves, deaths, graduations, birthdays and holidays.
  • Create Archive Folder: Create an archive folder in your PC by the year and dump all the pictures in it. You can randomly put all the pictures taken all through the year in this folder.
  • Rethink The Ideas: Once you review the folder many new ideas will come into your mind. You might come across a musical event that you had attended and would want to dedicate a page in the photobook for that. Your home might have undergone major renovations to your home in the last year and you would want to give photos of the new looking house in the photobook. You might also want to include some of the short trips that you took during the year.
  • Collage of Pictures: At times there might be some pictures you would like to include, but these do not require an entire page. A few pictures from a baby showers celebration, some others from of the family gatherings or may be some other old friends’ meeting can be included in the photobook. You can create a collage of all these special pictures and use them in a page of your photobook.
  • Get Photos From Others: At times you might have been at a special event but could not capture the frames as you were not carrying a camera. In such situations you may find some of your friends or family members have taken the snaps. Nowadays people share the photos on the Internet. So get those photos from them and use in photobook.

After you are done with these steps you will have all the photos in hand to create the yearly photobook of your own. You will need a trusted printing agency to give a great output to your photobook. Print Papa is one of the most renowned printing service providers around and they deal with various types of photo products.
