|What is APPO?|
We are APPO, the Association of Personal Photo Organizers.
APPO, the Association of Personal Photo Organizers, is a professional membership organization that provides Personal Photo Organizers with training, support, and tools to help their communities manage their photos and preserve their lost stories.
APPO is Photo Management.
Did you know that 10 billion pictures are taken every single month? Why?
We. Take. Pictures. Of. Everything.
The result is photo chaos. Photos accumulate on our phones, in the cloud, on hard drives, or--even worse--on old computers. And we are still storing precious film photos in shoeboxes, hiding the memories that shaped who we are today. We no longer have an accessible, tangible reminder to share with others.
APPO realizes that our stories, our traditions--the story of you--is being lost because we have no time-managed photo-organizing system or person to keep up with it all.
APPO is Personal Photo Organizers.
APPO is a membership association that trains, supports, and provides industry tools to its members, known as Personal Photo Organizers, equipping them to rescue, manage, organize, and save your photos--allowing you to easily find, preserve, and share your stories.
Because APPO is the voice of the Photo Organizing Industry, product and service providers collaborate with APPO to supply our members with cutting-edge industry tools that they can share and provide to their clients.
Because the need for photo preservation has grown so much during the recent digital boom, APPO has grown to 500+ members throughout the world. In addition to supporting and training its members, APPO also educates the public about the importance of photo preservation, organization, and storytelling through its sister site, The Photo Organizers.
APPO is here to help organizers like you.
Chances are, you’re visiting APPO because you already have a Photo Organizing business or you’re interested in starting one...or perhaps you’re ready to take your photo organizing hobby to the next level. Either way, APPO is here to help. Learn more about our membership benefits here!
