Here are some suggestions for organizing photos in 2013:

Delete photos that don't have much value to you or the ones with blurry children and other problems, Williams noted.

Go to a photo-printing website or service and upload photos to order a DVD of your latest prints. Like other companies, Bedford in Oklahoma City offers this service, and within an hour or so, you can pick up the DVD, he said. If you have square prints, Instagram-style, that you need printed in an hour, check out a new free iPad/iPhone application, Printicular. The app will let you upload square photos from your camera roll or from Instagram itself directly to any Walgreens, where you can go pick up your 4 X 4-inch prints.

To help you, use a good software program that makes organizing photos easy. Williams recommends iPhoto as his favorite, noting that the program can sort the photos by date or event and allow for some basic editing. (iPhoto is for Macs only, though; a free program that works on PCs is Google's Picasa, but there are others.)

Check out your favorite photo websites for other things you can do with your photos, whether you want to put them on magnets, coffee mugs or cutting boards, create calendars or simply order prints.

Find a place that lets you get even more creative: Aluminyze.com puts your photos on metal sheets, or you can order a quick photo book of 20 prints using the Mosaic by Mixbook app on your iPhone (heymosaic.com).

You can also order cards, canvases and prints of Instagram photos at http://instacanv.as.
