Fall Photo Fun

Well, we are knee-deep in the full glory of Fall. I swear it happened overnight—one day it was 75 & sunny and then I woke up the next morning and it was 45 degrees and the leaves were changing colors! Have mixed feelings about Fall—it opens the door for Ol’ Man Winter, of whom I’m not a fan, but it also means pumpkin spice lattes, scarves, cozy fires and chili for dinner. And it gives me an opportunity to work on some indoor projects—Fall means my crafting gene kicks into full gear! So, if you’re like me, ready to engage in some indoor projects that you wouldn’t sacrifice a sunny summer day for..below are some ideas for Fall photo projects.

We make it quick and easy to get your photos with a variety of convenient options. Walk into a store and use the KODAK Picture Kiosk or try the KODAK MOMENTS Apps on your smartphone or tablet wherever you are, to order prints or make a photo book which you can pick up on your way home from work or have delivered right to your house. Then you’re all ready to begin crafting new creations and planning Fall get togethers!

How about an apple or pumpkin picking party to gather old friends or welcome new friends as the school year kicks off? Send out invites and later create collages and photo books to remember the fun.

Save Your Photos Day

September 27 was Save Your Photos Day, an international event created to educate the public about the importance of safeguarding and archiving photos. Every year there are over 550 natural disasters around the world and photos are among the most valuable possessions lost. There were over 60 events planned across the US for attendees to scan photos for safe keeping.

One of the largest events was held in Joplin, Missouri. Devastated by a tornado in 2011, the Joplin community came together to prevent the kind of loss of photos and documents that people experienced a few years ago from happening again. About 500 attendees scanned more than 35,000 photos at the Joplin event alone. A team of volunteers helped participants use the KODAK Picture Saver Scanning System PS50, which was donated by Kodak Alaris and E-Z Photo Scan, including a computer, flatbed scanner, software and accessories.

In Rochester, NY at the Public Library, volunteers used the Kodak Picture Saver Scanning System PS50 to input more than 10,000 photos over a five-hour span, said Nancy Sherman, business development manager with Kodak Alaris.
