Summertime is full of fun in the sun activities. Traveling with your family, hanging on the beach with friends, these are moments to treasure and reminisce about. This summer, how about making something amazing with these photos instead of hiding them in folders?
Create a photo wall
Good memories are an infusion of joy. When we look at photos from fun family moments, we are filled with happiness, why not surround yourself with happiness all the time? Print out your favorite photos from all your summer activities and hang them nicely on a wall at home. It adds a personal touch, brings joy to visitors and will surely make you smile whenever you go to the kitchen to grab a glass of water.
Share your photos as a slideshow video
Adding music to your photos takes the experience to a whole new level. Create a slideshow from your summer memories, add one of your favorite summer tunes and share with your friends and family. Slidely is really simple to use. Simply upload photos from your Facebook, Instagram, Picasa, Flickr, Dropbox, or your computer. Choose music from Youtube, SoundCloud or upload an MP3, and all that’s left is to save & share it with your friends & family.

Start a family blog
You don’t need to be a full time blogger to have a blog. It’s a great solution when you want to share stories, exciting news, updates and photos with your family and friends. Alert your loved ones when you put up your summer photos so they can have a look in their own time, comment and share their memories.
If you are concerned about privacy, you can make the blog private. Not very tech savvy? Try using a platform such as Family Says or My Family, which are especially designed for private family blogs.
Print your photos on a pack of cards
Who doesn’t love playing cards? For a DIY customized pack of cards, simply take an old pack of cards, print your best summer photos and glue them on.
Create a customized mug
Want to enjoy your summer memories every time you sip your coffee? Take your favorite summer photos to a gift shop nearby and have them printed on mugs. Tip: make some extras as presents for grandma and grandpa, they’ll love it!
Turn your photos into cards and postcards
