Episode 58: Organizing Your Photos with Christopher Desmond of MemoryWeb

I have thousands of pictures on my desktop, my phone, and online. Finding exactly the right image to share with relatives was a nightmare. It could take days to scroll through all the pictures for just the right one. Then Christopher Desmond introduced me to MemoryWeb.  I remember thinking how can one product do so much AND be designed for genealogists?

MemoryWeb is one of my go-to tools. It’s a photo organizer that’s easy to use and that makes sharing/ collaborating a snap.  Seriously. I can sync accounts automatically, share albums with relatives (who don’t have the product). Plus all the information I’ve added to the pictures stays with the pictures.  That means I can export my photos from MW with location, date, names, and captions without losing a thing. 

A big thanks to Christopher and Nancy Desmond for being a sponsor of the The Photo Detective Podcast.  They’ve created a photo tool that I love (and I don’t say that about every new product on the market.)

In this episode, Christopher and I talk about organizing digital photos and how you can do that with MemoryWeb.  He has a special offer for listeners.
