5 Reasons to label your digital photos on your phone: Labelbox

5 Reasons to label your digital photos on your phone: Labelbox

How we used to label photos in the past

    Back when cameras were not digital, labeling photos was a process of writing on the back of the printout. If you owned a Polaroid camera, scribbling on the bottom on the photo was another way to describe what was happening in the photo. However, this is no longer the case. Digital cameras and mobile phones have become the main tools in photography. Looking at photos is now usually online. Labeling photos usually involve writing in the ‘comments’ or description of online sites. If you’re looking at photos from your computer, there isn’t even any comments or descriptions for you to understand or remember what was going on.

     

    Labelbox

    With apps, it’s possible to label photos on your phone, so when you print them out, or share them online, it’s already labelled with artistic flair and with great style. If you’re using your computer, the label is there inside your photo. That’s why we wanted to create a solution and now released a free iPhone app called Labelbox.

    If you are not convinced, here are 5 reasons you should consider labeling inside the photos.

      1. It’s neat and tidy.

      Using a pen means you have to print out the photo first, everyone has to decipher your handwriting, and sometimes it can make the photo harder to see because of the indentations created from the pen. If you make a mistake, it’s not easy to erase. Using labelbox means you can easily place where the text goes and delete it if it looks wrong, no indentation marks either.

      2. Stylish and convenient.

      With a pen, style is mostly all about your handwriting. If your on the move when your taking those photos, you don’t have access to your computer or laptop to make those extravagant edits to label. An iPhone app like Labelbox has 8 different tapes and labels providing multiple styles to label your photos and share them wherever you are. It takes 3 actions, Select, Swipe and Type, and the photo is labelled in a stylish, well presented manner.

        3. Self censor your photos.

        It’s not always about labelling, sometimes you just want to share something but keep a face private, yet you want to keep the original for yourself. Easy! Select a black strip, cover the eyes and it’s ready. The original can still be kept intact.

        4. Easy to Remember.

        Everyone is on the go, capturing the moment is the in-thing, but when you’re capturing lots of moments, it’s easy to forget what each moment was. Quick easy tagging using labelbox means you can label quickly before you forget, so when you look at the photo later, you already have a cue. Even better if you’re trying to share instantly, labelling it means your friends quickly understand what it is your photograph is saying. When you look at the photo in years to come, the label is a nice reminder of what you was taking.

         

          5. Get Artistic.

          Tapes and labelling is only one use… You can get artistic, creating frames, layering labels, and use it as a pet art project. It makes it more fun to try to think out of the box with creative ways to enhance your photos.

            7 Tools to Help Keep Track of Goals and Habits Effectively

            7 Tools to Help Keep Track of Goals and Habits Effectively

            Now that 2011 is well underway and most people have fallen off the bandwagon when it comes to their New Year’s resolutions (myself included), it’s a good time to step back and take an honest look at our habits and the goals that we want to achieve.

            Something that I have learned over the past few years is that if you track something, be it your eating habits, exercise, writing time, work time, etc. you become aware of the reality of the situation. This is why most diet gurus tell you to track what you eat for a week so you have an awareness of the of how you really eat before you start your diet and exercise regimen.

            Tracking daily habits and progress towards goals is another way to see reality and create a way for you clearly review what you have accomplished over a set period of time. Tracking helps motivate you too; if I can make a change in my life and do it once a day for a period of time it makes me more apt to keep doing it.

            So, if you have some goals and habits in mind that need tracked, all you need is a tracking tool. Today we’ll look at 7 different tools to help you keep track of your habits and goals.

            Joe’s Goals

              Joe’s Goals is a web-based tool that allows users to track their habits and goals in an easy to use interface. Users can add as many goals/habits as they want and also check multiple times per day for those “extra productive days”. Something that is unique about Joe’s Goals is the way that you can keep track of negative habits such as eating out, smoking, etc. This can help you visualize the good things that you are doing as well as the negative things that you are doing in your life.

              Joe’s Goals is free with a subscription version giving you no ads and the “latest version” for $12 a year.

              Daytum

                Daytum

                is an in depth way of counting things that you do during the day and then presenting them to you in many different reports and groups. With Daytum you can add several different items to different custom categories such as work, school, home, etc. to keep track of your habits in each focus area of your life.

                Daytum is extremely in depth and there are a ton of settings for users to tweak. There is a free version that is pretty standard, but if you want more features and unlimited items and categories you’ll need Daytum Plus which is $4 a month.

                Excel or Numbers

                  If you are the spreadsheet number cruncher type and the thought of using someone else’s idea of how you should track your habits turns you off, then creating your own Excel/Numbers/Google spreadsheet is the way to go. Not only do you have pretty much limitless ways to view, enter, and manipulate your goal and habit data, but you have complete control over your stuff and can make it private.

                  What’s nice about spreadsheets is you can create reports and can customize your views in any way you see fit. Also, by using Dropbox, you can keep your tracker sheets anywhere you have a connection.

                  Evernote

                  Advertising

                    I must admit, I am an Evernote junky, mostly because this tool is so ubiquitous. There are several ways you can implement habit/goal tracking with Evernote. You won’t be able to get nifty reports and graphs and such, but you will be able to access your goal tracking anywhere your are, be it iPhone, Android, Mac, PC, or web. With Evernote you pretty much have no excuse for not entering your daily habit and goal information as it is available anywhere.

                    Evernote is free with a premium version available.

                    Access or Bento

                      If you like the idea of creating your own tracker via Excel or Numbers, you may be compelled to get even more creative with database tools like Access for Windows or Bento for Mac. These tools allow you to set up relational databases and even give you the option of setting up custom interfaces to interact with your data. Access is pretty powerful for personal database applications, and using it with other MS products, you can come up with some pretty awesome, in depth analysis and tracking of your habits and goals.

                      Bento is extremely powerful and user friendly. Also with Bento you can get the iPhone and iPad app to keep your data anywhere you go.

                      Analog Bonus: Pen and Paper

                      All these digital tools are pretty nifty and have all sorts of bells and whistles, but there are some people out there that still swear by a notebook and pen. Just like using spreadsheets or personal databases, pen and paper gives you ultimate freedom and control when it comes to your set up. It also doesn’t lock you into anyone else’s idea of just how you should track your habits.

                      Conclusion

                      I can’t necessarily recommend which tool is the best for tracking your personal habits and goals, as all of them have their quirks. What I can do however (yes, it’s a bit of a cop-out) is tell you that the tool to use is whatever works best for you. I personally keep track of my daily habits and personal goals with a combo Evernote for input and then a Google spreadsheet for long-term tracking.

                      What this all comes down to is not how or what tool you use, but finding what you are comfortable with and then getting busy with creating lasting habits and accomplishing short- and long-term goals.
