  • How do I know if I can do this myself?

    It's true. Organizing your digital photos can be a little challenging because...technology. If you follow our step-by-step process, know the basics of cutting/copying/pasting on your PC, you can do this. Where the technology sometimes gets in the way is during the consolidation phase of the project, but rest assured, if you need support, we're here for you.

  • What kind of support is available if I need help?

We also offer Individual Coaching sessions. If you decide you want someone to do all or some of the work for you, we've got you. You can learn more about our services at: https://www.captureyourphotos.com/services

  • What photo organizing systems or software do you cover? Does the course focus on one cloud service or system?

    One of the mistakes people make when they're organizing their photos is jumping right into a system. Before we talk systems and cloud services, we focus on tackling the root of the problem, which is consolidating, cleaning up, and backing up your photos. From there, we help you identify a system that works with your needs and priorities. For some, that means a simple system in a folder structure. For others, that means a cloud service like OneDrive or Dropbox. We know that digital memories are the future, so we focus on systems that will keep your photos safe and accessible now and for years to come.

  • I see there are bonuses. What are they?

    As my gift to you for purchasing this course, I'm giving you several tools and how-tos that will help you accomplish your photo organizing tasks. They include things like tip sheets for Windows File Explorer/Microsoft Photos, How to use Google Takeout, and Quick tips for using Microsoft OneDrive.

  • What sets this digital photo organizing course apart?

    Holly's experience. Digital photos have only been a part of most of our lives since the mid 2000s. Holly has been helping people organize their digital photos since 2010. She's taken years of experience working with all types of clients and collections and designed a course that provides practical solutions and processes for everyone from the basic tech users, to the busy mom, to the amateur photographer.

  • What if I also want to learn how to organize my printed photos and old home movies?

We also offer a mini-course on How to Sort your Printed Photos.
