7 Creative (& Affordable) Ways To Display Travel Photos
I don’t know about you, but when I come back from vacation I have thousands of new pictures. The only question is, what to do with them!
Now that photos live in a digital world, and aren’t automatically printed, they can be easily forgotten about. I don’t want that to happen to my travel photos!
So, here are 7 creative ways to display travel photos . Whether in a physical travel photo album, a no-frame gallery wall , or a high tech changing photo frame, you can make sure those memories never get forgotten.
Psst! This blog post contains affiliate links in it which sends me a bit of extra money if you use them… at no extra cost to you!
1. Back To The Basics: Make A Travel Photo Album
Making a travel photo album from digital photos can be done in one of two ways…
The Old School Method: Print & Add
Print up all your travel photos the same as when they were taken on physical film. The only difference now is that you can choose to only print the good ones!
I use Shutterfly, they offer standard size prints, square prints, and even large format prints ( see the options here )!
You’ll then need to buy a physical photo album to place your photos in once they arrive. And yes, they still sell those! You can buy a simple photo album, that lets you add photos – like this one on Amazon .
Or, make it more of a scrapbooking project, and buy this album kit to make a one of a kind album!
The New School Method: Travel Photo Book – Add Digital Photos & Print
Now, instead of spending time printing individual photos and adding them to an album, you can do that all digitally. Again, I like to use Shutterfly to make my travel photo books.
It’s more like making a digital scrapbook that get printed all at once. You can add different sized images, borders, even stickers, and of course comments!
I make one for every one of my trips – it’s really incredible to see how my editing style has changed over the years! P.S. I like making mine 8×8 hardcover books. The lay flat option looks incredible too, but it will add cost of course!
Shutterfly gives you the option for full control over designing your travel photo album – but I’ll admit, it’s a big time commitment. So, they also give you the option to have them design it for you… free of charge ( see that option here !).
Once your travel photo album arrives, leave it on display so you can pick up anytime you want to relive your trip. Or for guests to peruse at their leisure, just like an old school travel photo album!
P.S. Shutterfly often has discounts on their books as well, and now they’ve even partnered with Costco giving members 51% ( see all their current promotions here ).
2. Display Travel Photos By Printing Them On Something Fun!
On Shutterfly, you can also make your photos into so many other fun creations! Why not print them on a pillow, mug, or make them into a calendar!
Maybe even a customized luggage tag for your next trip ( choose a design here !).
I’ve printed my travel photos on a mousepad and fridge magnets, and it’s such a fun way to subtly display your favourite photos from your latest trip!
Check out all the options here !
Ideas To Display Photos On Wall
A very common way to display your favourite travel photos is to print them and add them to your wall. But the question is, how do you display them on your wall once they’re printed!?
3. Creative Ways To Display Photos Without Frames: Make A Photo Wall!
There’s no denying, the most expensive part about displaying your photos on a wall is framing them!
So, I came up with a creatives ways to display a lot of photos without frames at all: a growing travel photo wall!
I print my photos square (4×4) with a white border (which gives a nice separation between photos once they’re on the wall). Then, I chose the biggest and emptiest wall in my house and simply tape all my photos to it (with removable, double sided tape).
Don’t worry, I have a full how to make a growing travel photo wall post here .
It’s an inexpensive way to display A LOT of travel photos all at once for everyone to see. I’m also able to easily add to it after every trip – the only real limit is the size of the wall! Plus, it’s a no brainer to mount the photos and even take out, it doesn’t damage the wall at all!
I’ve added to, and even moved my photo wall now several times! It’s a real show stopper as well when ever anyone comes over. It’s a fun game to see what locations people can recognize.
Step It Up A Notch
If you aren’t sold on the no-frame idea, you can easily step up your photo wall by buying an extra large frame to add all your photos.
This way, your photos are protected, and it looks a tad more professional! But, it will definitely cost you!

4. Make A Gallery Wall Or Photo Grid With Travel Photos
For a more traditional way to display your travel photos, you can print more typical size photos and frame them. I’m talking 4×6, 5×7, and 8×10 – print them on Shutterfly here .
For a fun look, create a travel gallery wall with different sizes and frames. It’s easy to add new photos, and they don’t have to be measured perfectly, or even match!
For a more uniform look , print the same size photo and place them in the exact same frame. It’s a more serious way to display your photos but I find it works really well for themed prints. I printed up all my lighthouse photos from Prince Edward Island and displayed them in my long – and otherwise empty -hallway.
You can also change them up to display travel photos from your latest trip each time.
5. Make A Canvas Print (DIY Option)
Looking for other creative ways to display photos without frames? Why not print your photos on canvas!?
Canvas prints are beautiful and really make a statement on your wall – without the need for any frame at all!
I love the look of photos printed on canvas, but I’ll admit they can definitely add up to a hefty bill (especially the larger you go!).
So, if you’re up for it, and committed to the look, there is a way that you can cut costs in half by printing it yourself ! It makes a really neat more rustic look too! Read the full DIY project here.
No Print Ideas To Display Photos
You might not want to spend time, money, or even paper to print and display travel photos from your latest trip. So here are two no print ideas to display photos !
6. Invest In A Moving Picture Frame: Easy Travel Photo Display
This one is a bit on the pricey side – but it might be worth it for you! Think of all the time, money, and paper you’ll save in the long run.
A moving picture frame is a hassle free, no printing, way to display travel photos. It’s so easy to change the photos it displays and even add more after every trip! You have a constantly changing loop of photos.
I have a Google Nest Hub ( see options on Walmart.com ), and honestly I don’t use it for much else other than displaying my photos from my most recent trip (or a mix of all of my travels!).
7. Make A Personal Blog For A Non Print Option!
If you don’t want to print photos, why not start a blog to add your favourite travel photos.
You have an online space that is easily accessible and you can even share the URL with friends and family to see (don’t worry, it doesn’t have to be a public blog).
Sign up for WordPress.com , it’s completely free. Start adding your photos! You can even add comments to share your favourite stories from your trip next to each photo!

P.S. Learn How To Take Better Group Travel Photos
Stop taking selfies or asking someone to take a photo of you while you’re away. I have a few handy travel photo gear I always bring with me to take the best photos of myself and travel partner – every time!
Although, if you learn how to take better photos, you might just have a harder time deciding which ones to display when you get back…
Anyway, it’s all about a remote shutter, mini tripod, and phone adapter (then there’s also knowing how to frame it…) read more about how to take the best travel photos here .

How to take Instagram-worthy travel photos
As a travel journalist, I take hundreds of pictures per day. The most striking ones aren’t simply of beautiful people in beautiful places. They’re the ones that capture travelers reveling in their journeys, that reveal how a destination’s people live, and that convey the soul of a place. My goal is to document my fleeting experiences in a way that brings them to life for those who aren’t with me. And, yes, I admit it, I don’t mind getting a bunch of likes on Instagram, too.
How to focus on your travel photography skills even when you aren’t traveling
Sometimes you’ll get lucky and take a great shot without much thought or preparation. However, most five-star pics require a basic understanding of the fundamentals of photography and a little work. You don’t need to buy any fancy equipment; the camera on your phone will do the trick, though a DSLR or mirrorless camera will give you more flexibility and options. If you follow these tips, you’ll come home with pictures that will wow, whether you’re putting them up on the fridge or posting them online.
Let your phone help you look like a pro
Become familiar with your phone’s self-timer function, so you won’t need assistance to take a picture of yourself. A next-level option is the Apple Watch’s Camera Remote app, which pairs with your iPhone so you can see through your camera’s viewfinder on your watch’s screen and set a timer there. Turn on your phone’s camera grid, which divides your screen into nine equal parts using two equally spaced vertical lines and two equally spaced horizontal lines. This serves as a visual reminder of the rule of thirds, where key compositional elements are placed along the lines or at their intersections to create visually pleasing photos.
Check your gear
Before you head out, make sure your battery is fully charged. If you have a camera, bring an extra battery; if you’re using your phone, consider investing in a portable charger. If your camera has an interchangeable lens, bring several lenses of varying focal lengths: macro, wide angle and telephoto. Always pack a microfiber cloth to clean your lenses.
Work with the light
Ideally, you want the sun at your back or just off to your side when you take a picture, so it illuminates your subject. Don’t shoot your subject in front of the sun or other bright light source; this will cause backlighting, which will create a dark mess of shadows.
See the winners of The Post’s 22nd annual Travel photo contest
The best light of the day is during its golden hours: roughly the hour following sunrise and the hour before sunset. This gentle, ample light will lend your pictures the richest, most vibrant colors. To harness its potential can mean getting up early or delaying your dinner plans, but your pictures will pop.
Although the middle of the day might seem like a great time to shoot because there’s so much light, that’s not necessarily true. The light is harsh, which isn’t always flattering to subjects, and it creates strong shadows. That doesn’t mean you can’t get wonderful photos at midday. “When the sun casts shadows, it creates beautiful patterns on things that can be very striking,” says professional travel photographer Lola Akinmade Akerstrom . “It can also create a natural spotlight. Wait for someone to walk into that light, then you take your shot.”
Remember the fundamentals
A photograph has the potential for great color, light, composition and what photographers call a “decisive moment,” which takes the action from meh to meaningful. “You don’t have to have all four, but you must have at least two,” says Nevada Wier , a professional travel photographer. “So, if there’s a great sunset, there still has to be something else to make it unique. And if there’s something with great color, you still have to compose the image impeccably.”
Get out of the middle
“There is a near-universal tendency to center a subject in the middle of the frame,” says professional travel photographer and journalist Christopher Baker , who suggests thinking outside the middle of the box. “If you are going to photograph a group of people in front of a landmark, don’t put them in a straight line. Stagger them instead. Put a single subject to the left or right of your frame.”
Watch your background
Amateur photographers often fixate on the person they are shooting, while completely forgetting about what’s going on behind the subject. Unfortunately, a messy background makes for a messy photo. “Eliminate everything that doesn’t matter in the image, and pay attention to composing what does matter,” says Wier, emphasizing that this might mean moving your subject, moving yourself or moving something distracting that is within the frame of the shot.
Get different perspectives
Don’t shoot a person, place or object from a single angle; photograph them from a variety of perspectives. An easy way to capture an interesting array is to start with wide-angle establishing shots, then work closer and closer to your subject until you’re focusing on the finest of details. Along the way, consider photographing from low and high vantage points, as well as getting both action shots and still lifes.
Think of a theme
Sometimes you’ll come across a festival or market bursting with seemingly endless photo opportunities. It can be so overwhelming that you won’t know where to point your camera. “What’s fun is to start thinking about a theme for your photographs,” Wier says. “Look for the color pink or look for hats. If you give yourself a theme, you start noticing things.”
Get out of your comfort zone
Maybe you love taking pictures of every meal you eat, or perhaps your focus is landscapes. However, when you travel, you need to document all the elements of your destination, “because it’s everything together that tells a story of a place,” says Akerstrom, who also suggests travelers look at pictures of their destination on Google and Instagram before they go, so they can push themselves to get different images.
Make famous landmarks accessories
“Some of the most compelling photos of landmarks are when they are in the background and you’re capturing how life moves around it,” Akerstrom says. For example, if you want a striking image of the Eiffel Tower, go to a cafe where you can see it in the background. Focus your photo on the action at the cafe, such as a server handing someone a cocktail or a diner sipping an espresso, while keeping the Eiffel Tower in the back as a supporting cast member in this miniature drama.
Don’t forget the people
Pictures of people bring a place alive in photos. Be respectful by politely engaging with them and asking their permission to shoot. It can be intimidating to approach strangers, and it is sometimes difficult to navigate language barriers, but creating those relationships will pay off. Once you have the go-ahead, don’t stand back and lurk with a telephoto lens. “Closer is better,” Baker says. “Get up front and personal. Engage. I’ll sometimes have my camera 18 inches from someone’s face.”
“Getting a great shot is about anticipating, observation and patience,” Akerstrom says. That means taking your time. Don’t think you can rush through your trip, snapping perfect pictures. Consider your subject and the options to photograph it, then wait for the right moments to capture it.
Stop taking pictures!
Occasionally, put down your camera for a stretch. “It’s so often that I’ve been on assignment and so dedicated to get photos to please an editor that, at the end of the trip, I realize I didn’t have time to enjoy the people, the place or the experience, because I was always thinking about moving on to get the next shot,” Baker laments. Don’t make this mistake. Remember to savor your trips and live in the moment while you’re on them.

Psst… There’s a Weekly Nonstop Flight to Grenada from Logan Airport
Only five hours away, the Lesser Antilles island is waiting.
From day trips to weekend getaways, our biweekly Traveler newsletter shows you the best of New England and beyond.
Courtesy Six Senses La Sagesse in Grenada
February is almost here, which means one thing for most Bostonians: simultaneously daydreaming about warmer climes and cursing the decision to live here. The good news is there’s now one more nonstop flight to the Caribbean from Logan, should you choose to make that dream a reality: This past November, JetBlue began offering direct flights to Grenada every Saturday from the Hub.
If you’re not already familiar with Grenada, you should know this: As the southernmost island in the Lesser Antilles and just 515 miles northeast of Venezuela, it is warm . Even in January, the average high temperature clocks in at a delightful 84 degrees—by contrast, our fair city’s average August high is just 81 degrees. That means unlike some other Caribbean destinations that will remain nameless, winter days here are actually hot enough for swimming, snorkeling, and other water-based fun.
Courtesy Six Senses La Sagesse (Grenada)
Known for its gorgeous beaches and abundance of spices, Grenada is growing its tourism sector in other ways, too, with new lodging on the horizon. On February 1, the luxury boutique hotel Silversands Beach House opens its doors, offering suites built into a cliff overlooking the crystal-clear Caribbean Sea. Sandwiched between two beaches and a lagoon, Six Senses La Segasse Grenada promises to be another stunning lodging option when it opens this spring, with a spa, five dining experiences, and kid-friendly programming rounding out the resort’s offerings.
If you need a break from soaking up the sun at your hotel, you’ll find plenty else to do on the island. At the top of the list is the first-of-its-kind Moliniére Underwater Sculpture Park , which recently received a major upgrade thanks to the addition of 31 pieces. You can snorkel or dive to see artist James deCaires Taylor’s new collection “Coral Carnival,” which takes inspiration from the island’s annual carnival and features sculptures festooned with jewels, sequins, and feathers.
Back on dry land, arrange a guided tour through the rainforest to the breathtaking Seven Sisters Falls , or get a primer on cocoa production at the 17th-century plantation known as Belmont Estate .
No matter what you do, be sure to end the day with a rum punch as the sun sets—and try as hard as you possibly can not to think about your return flight to the frigid cold that awaits.

Photos of the Week: Iconic London Arrival
Scenic views cap nonstop flight from pit to uk’s main gateway.

It’s a ready-made picture.
Yes, getting to London has never been easier thanks to British Airways’ year-round nonstop route connecting it to Pittsburgh. But in addition to quickly and efficiently getting travelers across the pond and beyond, flying into London offers its own scenic perks.
Take, for example, the image Matt Grossman captured before landing at London Heathrow Airport.
Clearly visible is the Big Ben tower clock. (Strictly speaking, the name refers only to the 15-ton bell, but it’s commonly associated with the whole clock tower at the northern end of the Houses of Parliament.)
Also visible are the London Eye, the River Thames, Buckingham Palace and many other iconic landmarks.
British Airways flies to London from Pittsburgh six days a week during summer travel season and offers four weekly flights in the colder off-season.
We hope you enjoyed your time in London, Matt!
For another scenic shot a little closer to home, Ingrid Bengston-Eberle took this photo of the Golden Triangle over Pittsburgh while flying on Delta. Clearly visible is Point State Park, most of Downtown, PNC Park, and two of our three rivers.
Thanks, Matt and Ingrid!

Visitors to Borana might encounter zebras, leopards, impalas, elephants, and the area’s population of 200 rhinos—a relative of the horse.
Three travelers on horseback pause to admire six rare and elegant zebras, grazing on short grass in Kenya.
Nearly two decades ago, I encountered zebras, elephants, leopards, hippos, and an extremely rare white rhino, up close in Nairobi. It was exhilarating until the white rhino came within inches of my group. Thankfully, our skilled driver maneuvered us to safety in a Range Rover. I can only imagine the heightened experience on horseback.
New York-born, Nairobi-based National Geographic photographer Nichole Sobecki (b. 1986) captured the three riders, led by local Guide Hamprey Mweterwa in the middle, and six zebras on Ultimate Safari on Horseback through the Borana Conservancy in Kenya, located just North of the equator, resting on the Laikipia Plateau.
The image, amplified by the symmetry and the play of each unique stripe, is imbued with serenity, even if zebras are known to be untamable, hot-tempered, and aggressive. Their swaggering gait is stalled in this depiction.
In the late 1970s, more than 15,000 Grevy's zebras roamed freely, until hunters and poachers nearly eliminated them. According to the first-ever Great Grevy's census, conducted January 30-31, 2016, Kenya is home to 2,350 Grevy's zebras, around 90 percent of the world's population.
The zebras’ precarity makes Sobecki’s shot even more special. Her stunning image leads the National Geographic Top 20 Travel Experiences For 2024 , announced today.
Now Boarding: The cost of flying nonstop to Paris from Phoenix
PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) — Don’t expect discounts off the bat for the new Air France nonstop flight from Phoenix to Paris . Passengers will be paying a premium for the convenience of not having to make a layover along the way.
All airlines raise airfares during peak travel season in June. Most are charging around $1,500 for a base fare from Phoenix to Charles de Gaulle, with a layover. Air France will charge $1,655 to $1,855 for a roundtrip base fare in June for the new nonstop. Prices are scheduled to come down to $800 by mid-September.
The new route begins May 23 and operates Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. Air France plans to fly a 787 Dreamliner from Terminal 4, as it’s already equipped with a U.S. Customs area. The flight should take around 10 hours on the way to Paris and 11 hours on the way back. Aside from shaving hours off the flight time, a nonstop means less of a chance of a delay (weather or otherwise) in a layover city.
Plus, once in Paris, Air France flies to nearly 180 cities in Europe, Africa, the Middle East and beyond from Charles de Gaulle. It’s easy and inexpensive to take a hopper flight from CDG to Bilbao in Northern Spain , Florence in Italy, Ljubljana in Slovenia, or Copenhagen and Stockholm in Scandinavia.
Phoenix City Hall claims the number of passengers flying between Phoenix and Paris is up nearly 40% from 2019. Air France is also resuming flights from Minneapolis this summer and expanding flights from Raleigh-Durham, too.

What Makes a Good Travel Photo?
Whether you’re traveling alone or with friends, taking photos is a great way to document your trip.
The best travel photos are those that capture the natural beauty of your surroundings. Whether you’re traveling alone or with friends, taking photos on the road is a great way to document your trip.
Here are a few photography tips on how to capture beautiful images and make sure they look their best:
Shoot in Color Instead of Black and White
Color is more than just a pretty face. It’s also your best friend when it comes to travel photography, helping you capture the vibrancy of your surroundings and giving your vacation pictures a time frame as technology advances.
When you shoot in color, you have the ability to capture every detail and texture of a scene. You don’t have to worry about getting the perfect exposure or how the image will look on paper – you can just focus on capturing what you have in front of you and worry about the rest later.
Black and white photography, on the other hand, requires you to think about what makes an image work, because there’s no color to cover imperfections or distract from flaws in composition or subject matter. Rather than focusing on getting everything right in every shot, black-and-white photography requires you to analyze every element in the image to ensure that everything fits together seamlessly for maximum impact – whether it’s making sure that each subject is sufficiently separated from the others, or ensuring that there is enough contrast between light sources and shadows within a scene so that there are no unwanted distractions from what should be the focus of the image.
What makes black and white photos special is that black and white photos are timeless, while color photos can quickly look dated as technology advances. Some photographers even choose to convert their images to black and white after the fact, believing that it gives them more creative freedom than shooting in color.
Color is vibrant and eye-catching, but black and white can be just as impressive – if not more so – than its counterpart.
When Possible, Use Natural Light
When traveling and taking photos, it’s easy to get into the habit of shooting only when the sun is shining. But if you have the time, you should shoot with natural light as much as possible.
Natural light is softer than artificial light and gives your photos a more flattering look. It also makes your subjects look more natural and less posed.
If you don’t have much time or access to natural light, find a place with good artificial lighting. If you’re at a restaurant, ask if there are any empty seats where the light isn’t too bright or harsh. If there isn’t, move outside or around the corner to another area where the lighting is better than your current spot.
Experiment With Angles and Perspectives
Photography is about capturing the world around you. It’s not just about taking a photo, it’s about conveying your feelings and emotions. The best travel photos are the ones that show you a place from an angle or perspective you’ve never seen before. Experiment with different angles and perspectives to make your photos even more interesting – you may discover something new about a place that no one has noticed!
Don’t be afraid to get creative with your camera. Using filters and other effects can add life to your images, but remember that these are just tools, not rules. If something doesn’t work for you, don’t use it again!
A photo should tell a good story. When choosing where to shoot, look for areas where there are lots of exciting objects that you can include in the shot – a fountain or sculpture would be ideal. If there are no apparent subjects, look for patterns in architecture or street signs; these can make great subjects for photos!
Get Up Close and Personal With Your Subject
Zoom in to see the details of a flower, or zoom out to capture the scene of a busy cityscape.
Zooming in allows you to focus on one part of the image while leaving other parts out of focus. This can be very effective at isolating your subject from its surroundings and focusing the viewer’s attention on what matters most to you.
When photographing landscapes and scenery, use a wide-angle lens that shows large areas of the landscape in one shot. If you’re photographing small objects like flowers or insects, you should use a macro lens that allows you to take extreme close-ups that show intricate details of small objects like petals and leaves.
How to Share Your Travel Photos
We used to organize an evening with family and friends to share our travel experiences. Nowadays, everything is shared instantly. So if you’re a photography enthusiast, it’s time to start thinking about your next trip.
There are many ways to share your photos online. Here are some tips on how to show off your travel photos online:
Set Up an Online Gallery
Setting up an online gallery is the easiest way to show off your travel pictures. There are many services on the Internet, including Flickr and SmugMug. You can also use your website or blog to showcase your photos.
The purpose of an online gallery is to share your best shots with friends and family, as well as potential clients and employers. If you’re serious about becoming a professional photographer, it’s a good idea to create such a gallery, even if you don’t plan to charge money to view photos.
Use Social Media
If you don’t have much time and don’t mind strangers seeing your pictures, you can post them on social media. Facebook, Instagram, and Snapchat are easy ways to share photos with friends. You can also post them on travel forums or blogs if you want feedback and advice from other travelers.
- On Facebook, simply upload your favorite travel photos to your Timeline and tag them with where they were taken. Your friends will see them in their news feeds over time – some may even like them or comment on them!
- On Instagram, use hashtags to link your Instagram photo to other images from the exact location (e.g., “#paris”). This way, people can search for images related to their destination and find yours too!
- If you use Snapchat, create a story that lasts 24 hours so people can view a series of snaps together without having to keep going back to old snaps. If you’re on Twitter or Tumblr, try posting updates in real time by sharing photos with your followers every few minutes (or seconds!). This is fun for both sides because it creates a sense of excitement for what’s happening!
Create a Blog
A blog is one of the most effective ways to show off your travel memories of the best places you’ve been and the amazing people you’ve met, while detailing your trip. Nowadays, blogs are easy and intuitive to create and can be used to showcase your best shots from around the world.
Blogs are also great for sharing your experiences with others, such as advice on what to do or not do when visiting a particular place or region. For example, if you’ve been to Australia several times and know the best places to go, why not share some tips about those places on your blog? You might even want to share some stories about your experiences there!
Another reason blogging can be beneficial is the opportunity to connect with people who have traveled to similar places. This is especially important if you want to connect with like-minded people from around the world with similar interests.
The first step is to choose a platform on which to create your blog. There are many options, like WordPress or Tumblr, but they all offer similar features. The next step is to choose a template that fits your style and needs.
You can also use free websites like Weebly or Squarespace, which allow you to create a beautiful website without any coding knowledge.
A great way to showcase your photos is to use a grid layout, where each image fills an entire column or row. This way, users can see each travel photo without having to scroll down a lot, which makes browsing photos much easier.
Another good option is to add captions under each travel photo so viewers can read what’s happening in each image or why you chose it as one of your favorites.
Create a Physical Travel Photo Album With Your Favorite Photos
A physical travel photo album of your favorite photos is a great way to showcase your photos, especially for those who don’t use the internet, like older people.
It’s also a great way to preserve your memories and share them with family and friends. Or maybe you want to stay offline to protect your privacy.
You can create a photo book at home or hire someone to create it. Many companies offer a photo book service where the book is designed and printed for you.
You can also design a photo book yourself at home or hire someone to create it. Many companies offer a photo book service where they design and print the book for you.
Here are some tips on how to create a physical photo album:
- Select your favorite travel photos from your collection . It’s better to start with fewer photos than too many, because it can be difficult to choose which vacation photos to put in an album.
- Select your favorite photos in terms of quality and content – this will ensure that all the images go well together. For example, if you’re creating a vacation album, all the pictures should have been taken during that road trip so they have similar backgrounds and lighting conditions.
- Create a theme for your album (e.g., “vacation,” “family portrait,” “friends”). If you give yourself guidelines for what kind of photos you need, it’ll be easier for you to choose good photos from your collection.
- Consider adding captions or short descriptions next to each photo . These little extras make the album more personal and interactive – perfect if it’s intended as a gift!

Breeze Airways Adds More East Coast Routes for Summer Travel — What to Know
The low-cost airline will begin flying between Raleigh-Durham and Burlington, Vermont, Portland, Maine, and Syracuse, New York this summer.
Mark Howard/Getty Images
Breeze Airways has mapped out its summer schedule from Raleigh-Durham International Airport, announcing three new routes to New England.
Just before the Memorial Day weekend, the low-cost airline will begin flying between Raleigh-Durham and Burlington, Vermont., Portland, Maine, and Syracuse, New York. These routes will be available twice-weekly basis during the summer season before coming to a close on Sept. 3.
Breeze first started flying to the North Carolina airport in February 2022 and has seen proven success from this destination. In less than a year’s time, the airline has rapidly expanded with a schedule of year-round and seasonal routes.
“Raleigh-Durham and the greater Research Triangle have shown to be a fast-growing destination and origin,” said Breeze Airways’ President Tom Doxey in a statement shared exclusively with Travel + Leisure. “We have seen great demand in the region, and we are excited to bring more affordable and convenient destinations to our guests, now with 15 nonstop destinations on sale.”
Beyond New England, the carrier has a few other summer routes planned for the North Carolina airport. Breeze will begin flying between Raleigh-Durham and San Diego this May, a new transcontinental route that isn’t offered by any other airline.
Along with the announcement, all three of Breeze’s newest flights are on sale for as low as $59 one-way when booked directly through Breeze’s website or app. The promotional fares must be booked by February 5, with no blackout dates to note. This means travelers based in the Triangle region can jump on these excellent fares to New England during peak summer.
Over the past couple of years, Raleigh-Durham International Airport has seen a substantial amount of growth. Breeze’s main competitor, Avelo Airlines , established a base at Raleigh-Durham last year. This summer, Lufthansa and Aeromexico are coming to the airport to offer new services to Frankfurt and Mexico City, respectively.

Video shows 2022 US trucker caravan, not 'Take Our Border Back' convoy | Fact check
The claim: Video shows US trucker convoy traveling to southern border to stop migrant 'invasion'
A Jan. 27 Facebook post ( direct link , archive link ) shows footage of a caravan of truckers being cheered on by onlookers holding U.S. flags.
"Breaking News: The Great Awakening has begun as thousands head to the US Southern Border to halt the Invasion," the post's caption reads in part.
The Facebook post was shared more than 50 times in two days. The video was also shared widely on X , formerly Twitter.
More from the Fact-Check Team: How we pick and research claims | Email newsletter | Facebook page
Our rating: False
Reports indicate that a convoy called "Take Our Border Back" was scheduled from Jan. 29 to Feb. 3, but the video does not show that event. The footage shows a U.S. trucker convoy that set off for Washington, D.C., in 2022 to protest COVID-19 restrictions.
Footage of trucker convoy is from 2022 COVID-19 demonstration
The "Take Our Border Back" truck and car convoy was scheduled to begin Jan. 29 and end Feb. 3 with rallies in border cities in California, Arizona and Texas, according to the group's website and multiple news reports .
The group planned to call on government officials to "secure our southern border." A promotional video shows images of immigrants at the southern U.S. border with an on-screen caption that reads, "invasion."
But the video in the Facebook post does not show the "Take Our Border Back" convoy, which hadn't started yet on the date the post was made. Instead, it shows footage from a U.S. trucker convoy that traveled from California to Washington, D.C., in February 2022 to protest COVID-19 restrictions, according to news reports that included video of that event. Part of the watermark visible in news video reports from the time can be seen in the post's video.
Fact check : No evidence COVID-19 vaccine contributed to tennis writer's death
The 2022 event, which was called the "People's Convoy," drew about 1,000 vehicles and, according to the Washington Post , made loops around the Beltway, the highway that surrounds Washington. Initial reports show this convoy started much smaller, with about 20 vehicles at the end of the first day, Wired reported .
A bipartisan deal addressing migration at the southern border has proved elusive. President Joe Biden vowed Jan. 26 to take action to "shut down" the U.S.-Mexico border if Congress approved a proposal under negotiation in the Senate, USA TODAY reported. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell has expressed privately that opposition from former President Donald Trump puts the Republican party in a dilemma, the article said.
The Facebook user who shared the video did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
