The Best of Your Family Photo Album

Nan Barnes

You’re the fortunate (unfortunate?) custodian of the family photo collection. How do you decide which photos make it into your family history book?
Sometimes the best way to begin is to decide what to eliminate. Some of the choices you might make include are to eliminate:
• photos that are flawed or damaged
• repetitious photos. Choose the best image.
• unknown or unrelated subjects or people
From the remaining photos decide which you should include by selecting those which:

• are most relevant to the story you want to tell
• are of the best image quality and attractiveness
