New Feature: Groups

One of the major advantages of Arkiver over other apps is privacy: nobody can see anything of yours unless you choose to share it with them. But what if you’re a part of a large group that wants to collaborate on a Collection? At Arkiver, we want you to have the best experience possible–that’s why we’re introducing Groups.

8 Ways to Avoid Vacation Photo Overload

We all love summer vacation, but we typically return overloaded with photos and mementos. Whether it’s our kids happily building sand castles or a photo opp in front of the Trevi fountain, how can we not take a picture to capture those moments? Usually we’ll take several just to make sure the scene is composed perfectly and everyone is smiling. Sound familiar?

 

Unfortunately, once we get back home, sorting through all these memories can be stressful and time consuming. Often it’s a job we put off and never complete. Here’s a few ideas to help you avoid photo overload this summer and create a wonderful record of your vacation for you and your family.

How Memories Can Give You a New Perspective On Life

We are planners. You’ve most likely heard your parents say, “think about your future,” at some point in your life. It’s easy to get caught in the grind, constantly collecting goals and to-dos in endless lists. From the grocery list on the fridge to your work calendar at the office, we find ourselves effortlessly traversing and organizing the future. Advertising, media, and a human desire to achieve more all drive us to dwell on what we don’t have and what we haven’t achieved, rather than appreciating all that we have already accomplished.

 

So, what about the past?
