Family photos are the most prized possessions to mums, according to new research findings from creative software developer, Serif. It found 75% feel photos are more important than their mobile phone, car or bike, and credit card. Two thirds said they take more photographs compared to five years ago.
The poll* of 2,000 mums across the UK also revealed that, when asked what pictures they would rather save from a burning fire, 74% chose baby snaps followed by wedding (17%), pet (8%) and friends (2%).
The survey also showed that almost half are most likely to share pictures of their baby with friends and family on Facebook (49%), followed by photo albums (43%), and email (37%). Two thirds would design and print their own photobooks from home if they knew how to. Over 35% said they do not use online digital photo websites to make albums but would really like to make their own. 22% said they have used such websites but wish they could personalise them more.
“Most parents feel their children grow up too fast and that those baby milestones, such as first words and first steps, are often the most precious,” says Gary Bates, Managing Director at Serif.
“With the majority of households in the UK owning a digital camera, more and more mums are taking pictures of their children, right from birth, to preserve and relive precious moments. Sadly, many are left forgotten on the hard drive, or only rediscovered years later.
I know I have at least 4,000 photos on my iphone, and more on my PC that are just sitting there that I’ve thought about many times and thought ‘I must do something with these photo’s!’

CraftArtist Baby Photo review…
The CraftArtist is a great tool for creating:
Baby Shower Invites
Thank you cards
The package is very flexible, easy to use, and enables you to be very creative using your own baby pitcures. The video tutorials are also great to get you started and very easy to follow.
Once you have the Craft Artist software you can add Digikits from the shop on DaisyTrail.com for example additional software to create greeting cards & wedding day stationary.
You can print, share and create JPEG images or PDF files of your work. Printing is a slight issue for me as I dont have a printer and can be expensive to do professionally but emailing a pdf file is great and more environmentally friendly!
