Photo Albums & Frames
Many photography enthusiasts take pictures for the pure enjoyment of it and for the memories the photos can stir-up in the future. If you want to keep your photos in tip top shape to show your friends and relatives next Christmas, you should store them in a photo album. These solid paged albums are made specifically for keeping photos flat and to protect the images with plastic coated pages. You simply insert your photos inside the see-through, thin plastic coating and secure them to the page.
If you would like your favorite photos to be seen by everybody once they enter your house, room or office you can insert them into photo frames. These frames are usually made of wood, aluminum or plastic and have glass or see-through plastic coverings so you can see the photo underneath. Aluminum frames are ideal as they don't produce acid. Most frames have stands on them so they can be placed on tables and others can be mounted on the wall. You should keep the photos out of the sunlight though. Sunlight can fade the picture, unless you use archival paper. Albums and frames come in various sizes, shapes and styles. You should be able to find each item starting at less than $20.
