Record Every Day Of Your Life For A Year With Photo 365
A few years back, a movement called Project 365 quickly shot to fame and dominated the photo world for quite a while. The idea was simple: to be part of the project you were required to take one photo a day for the whole year. You would then upload the photos to your account on the project’s website and, at the end of the year, you would be able to recall all of these daily moments of your life.
The mobile world caught on to the trend quickly – first, with app releases for IOS, like Project 365 and Photo 365.
Today the excitement over the project may have quieted down, but the apps are still there are and are also available to Android users. Photo365 offers an interesting way to recall your year and an alternative to keeping your photos on social media.
What makes it a good idea?
There are a number of reasons for getting involved into Project 365, even years later and in private. Some of us may be guided by the ever-present curiosity, while others inspired by the chance to test our creativity.
As has been already mentioned, the app can be looked upon as an alternative photo storing solution. It will organize your selected photos in chronological order and offer you a nice calendar to look at the end of the year and a fun way to look back at what has happened.
‘Some users may find it fun to choose a concept for their daily snapshots. Popular themes have been daily selfies, morning coffee, pictures of strangers, food photos, etc.
If you are a social media fan, the app can help you present a very detailed resume of the year on your Instagram or Facebook. However, a few users have complained that the images in the shareable version are too small to examine closely and have voiced suggestions of adding a feature for sharing individual images or monthly recaps.
How Does The App Work?
Once you download the app, you will be taken directly to the calendar. Pick a date and you will be offered to take a photo or choose one from your gallery. Your selected photo will be added to the calendar as a thumbnail on the specific date – and this will get you started.
The hardest thing, as in many long term projects, will be following through. The app comes with an automatic reminder to keep you on the right track so you will no excuses to avoid the daily assigned task.
You can also add notes to the photos in the calendar: a quick comment, a quote or an event you associate with a picture.
