Site Progress

I've been busily loading albums on to Flickr. If you get what Flickr is all about add my accounts as a contact to see them:

Arcadian Scrapbooks

If not, there will be notes about Flickr shortly. I'm trying to do a fancy thing with screenshots to show you all how it works and that takes forever. The albums so far are mainly weddings and anniversaries and some very old photos plus the usual test rabbits who get in there!

The Photo Log section of the site now has a live link to Photobox albums HERE. Although Flickr is more useful for this project a lot of people use Photobox for printing so we will have albums on both systems. Photobox are the cheapest and have the biggest choice of print sizes including square prints for the scrapbookers. I have nearly 6000 photos on Photobox but don't worry, I'm not going to link to them all! Please let me have your email address if you would like an invitation to Photobox with 50 free prints ;-)

There are SmileBox slideshows and scrapbooks under construction too. See post below for the latest one.

Mum and Dad's Ruby Wedding

Some of our albums will be in Smilebox slideshows/scrapbooks for your amusement although if you turn your speakers up you'll find this one is rather sad to watch now that Dad is gone.

Welcome to our new blog

This is the blog for the Horswill and Hills Families Photo Archive Project. Since that is a mouthful the website is called Horswill Family Photos and it's HERE, still very much under construction but those intrepid explorers who follow a trail through my blogs will now be able to see it.

Th new website is all about family photos and the stories they tell. OK, it's a teeny bit about making digital scrapbooks with photos I beg from relatives and Facebook friends. Please please please send me high resolution jpegs. That sort of whining is going to go on for a long time!

Do you like the header? It shows you the kind of scrapbooking that is to come! The photos are of Mum and Dad's wedding in 1949 and my paternal grandparents in 1929.
