What To Do With Your Travel Photos
For many of us, travelling entails taking an enormous number of snapshots. It's simply hard to control yourself when everything around is so different, so bright and authentic. And some places are just ridiculously instagrammable. You want to have a good reminder about those good times, and not to forget, let the world know that you're on holidays by posting your annoyingly happy face all over the social media.
But once you are back from your holiday, what's the fate of these travel photos? Keep evoking envy in your followers pretending your trip isn't over? Or post them with #flashback #tbt hashtags once on a gloomy rainy evening five months later?
Hold on, there are better ideas how to keep those beautiful moments from your photos last longer, bringing back holiday vibe and inspiration, which can help you pass through some rough times like now, hah?
Depending on the level of your enthusiasm and creativity, you can find at least one option that works best for you from the list below.
- 1. Create a travel jar
- 2. Print your photos as Polaroids
- 3. Make a fridge magnet from your favorite holiday photo
- 4. Buy a world map and pin the photos to the right place
- 5. Sell them online
- 6. Make your own travel postcards
#1 Create a travel jar
It may sound a bit strange, but making a travel jar is an unmainstream way to give your pictures a special place. Buy a reasonably large jar and fill it (depending on the destination) with sand, shells, souvenirs, flowers and last but not least, your most beautiful picture! It is guaranteed that your travel jar will attract lots of attention of your guests.
#2 Print your photos as Polaroids
What's totally popular these days is having your photos printed as retro Polaroids. It gives you a different feeling than printing your photos in normal size. Write nice texts underneath, hang them on a line with small clothes pegs or stick them on something. There are plenty of fun things you can do with the beautiful Polaroids. The internet is always available to fill you with the best ideas!
#3 Make a fridge magnet from your favorite holiday photo
It's hard to resist the many cute fridge magnets of destinations you’ve been to, but how much fun is it when you can have your own holiday photo on a fridge magnet? So then every time you come to the fridge, you would inevitably recall those gorgeous memories behind the photos.
#4 Buy a world map and pin the photos to the right place
Scratch Maps and world maps to prick in or fun 3D globes for the room are very popular in recent years. You can buy a large world map to put on the wall with the right picture at the right destination. This way, you can show off many destinations you've been to.
#5 Sell them online
If you need some extra cash, you can even try to monetize your memories by selling them on marketplaces like Shutterstock, Adobe Stock, Alamy, GettyImages or Etsy. Travel shots from around the world are always in high demand, so in case your photos are of high quality, you will easily find customers among the creative communities.
#6 Make your own travel postcards
For those in love with the old-school tradition of sending greeting from holidays via post office, there is a modern alternative to make your own customized postcards. You can create online your very own personalized photo postcard with your favourite shot from the last trip and send it worldwide.
Travelling fills us with beautiful memories, don't let them fade away!
