Taking photos with your phone is awesome because you always have a camera with you. However, sometimes these thousands of photos just sit on your phone and get forgotten. A few years ago I started using the Collect app to “collect” these photos and organize them. The calendar feature is a great visual and at first I just started sharing it on Instagram.
Last summer I realized that this would be a great addition to my project Life album and the Project Life app was the easy step to get it printed. Here are my steps:
- Download the Collect app and the Project Life app. Two of my favorite and most used apps. Well worth the few dollars they cost.
- Use the calendar to organize your photos.
- Within the app you can make purchases for a calendar grid, they have a few that are free and some upgraded collages. I usually just take a screen shot from my phone and use that, plus it is free. As long as you are not enlarging too big the resolution is fine.
- In the Project Life app, I open the “Squared Away 16” layout and drop my photos into it. I choose 12 extra photos that I want to enlarge that are highlights from my phone camera roll for the month and then print.
I love how the final Project Life pages are printed and the quality is awesome! If you take a ton of pictures with you iPhone this is a “must do” in my book.
