How to organize photos?

I have alot of photos in boxes that I would like to place into frames and albums. Where do I start? I dont want to add frilly things to photo albums, just need to know how to organize photos. How do you guys do yours? Events? Families? Friends? For the frames I'll just put individual photos up on the walls, and maybe a collage type of frame as well. The photo albums arrangement is a mystery to me though. I mean I have old baby photos, and old family photos, some of us as we were older, various life events as well. What to do?

I'm probably not the person to ask about how to arrange photo albums! I am totally OC when it comes to that. All pictures arranged in chronological order (or as close to it as I can come if I don't know the dates).

Barb, so you mean chronological for people and or events then? Thats kind of what I was thinking.

Maybe, we should wait until after the holidays where we're not feeling so rushed and busy to do it??

Definately. I'm not planning on making albums to give as gifts or anything like that. I figure it will take many months to gather these photos and organize them.

And so it goes, and this is why I too have so many photos from years of T-day, Christmas, etc. What to do with all of them!

I like my pictures in the exact order they were taken! Of course pictures from events go together, but they generally end up that way chronologically anyway. I do think special albums for things like weddings or other special days are nice to do. I have a lot of pictures in boxes too. I need to get some more photo albums. I would like to put some of them up in frames too. For collage frames I think I would like to do something different. For instance, in one I would like to have a grouping of my family from the same time period (within a few month span) and another with each family member at certain ages (like all infants/toddlers/teens, etc.).

I started with one bottom dresser drawer filled with photos that I somewhat sorted through today. I bought some photo albums, and some frames, and sorted some photos of my husband and I when we first met to make an album of those photos first. I found there are alot of blurry photos which I can just toss out, Whew! And then others that are duplicates so I'll put those separately.
