Free Photo Organizing Classes for Save Your Photos

Last weekend we went for a ride on the trail. During the five-hour ride, we stopped for lunch, ice cream, and brownies at different points along the route. (It takes bribes to keep the kiddo on the trail that long!) It was a gorgeous cloudy day, perfect for biking. Midway through the trail, I spied this tool tower for bikers.

All the essential bike repair tools are tethered to the pole, and there’s a foot-pedal air pump to fix a flat.

Whoever put this tower here even included helpful instructions!

Why Work with A Photo Organizer if You Can Do It Yourself?

I know how to change a flat and maintain my bike. Even though this set of tools is right where I can use them FOR FREE, I always take my bike into a pro shop at least once a year, even after I fix my own flats.

I pay good money for a pro to do the work that I actually know how to do.


My bike is important to me, and I want to keep it in good shape so I can enjoy biking without getting stranded.

I rely on my bike mechanic for the same reason you might hire a pro photo organizer.

Although I know how to maintain my bike, I’d rather spend my time doing other things.

Although I can change a flat, I only change about one each year. The bike store changes dozens each day, so they are faster and just better at it.

Although I have some tools, they have better tools.

Although I can fix some things, in the past I have caused secondary problems because I didn’t — ahem — really know what I was doing with those brakes.

Although I can keep doing things the way I was taught twenty years ago, the tools, systems, and recommendations have changed a lot since then, and I want the best for my bike.

You see, I love to ride, not play bike mechanic.

Just like you love to enjoy your pictures and memories, not fix cranky scanners, fiddle with metadata, and sort stacks of dusty, disorganized photos.
