Do you also have boxes full of crafts and drawings of your children? Very nice! And of course, you keep everything. But do you sometimes wonder where you should leave it all and how everything stays beautiful? We have the solution! Photograph or scan all individual drawings and crafts and then bundle them in a photo book or you can give it as a gifts to your friends. This way you can keep those beautiful works of art forever. We explain how to do that.
Loose drawings and crafts can perish, while they last for years in a photo book. Digitizing those artworks is easy. If you have a scanner, it is useful to scan drawings. Place the drawing in the corner of the scanning plate, scan at a minimum of 300 dpi, and choose file format jpg. That way you can also scan old photos or documents for, for example, a reminder book.
It is easier to take a picture of larger drawings than A4 and crafts. Make sure to provide natural light, do not use a flash. It is best to photograph drawings and flat crafts by placing them on the floor. Take the photo straight from above. Other crafts are fun to photograph them from multiple sides. Put them on the table and take different positions. Please note that the environment is not too distracting.
Then, just like regular photos, you can select the jpg images and collect them in our free photo book program. You can also opt for cheerful backgrounds, cliparts, and passe-part outs that show off the drawings and crafts even better. And do not forget to mention the production date of the work or the age of your child!
This saves you storage space and you keep the artworks beautiful forever! Nice for your children later or as a gift for grandpa and grandma.
