How To Make Sure Your Pictures Don’t Get Lost In The Digital World

If you are someone that has an interest in photography, then you’d know by now how much the world of photography has changes in the last few decades. Now-a-days, cameras aren’t those huge, bulky devices that need special training to learn how to use. Most models are pretty user friendly now, and offer even beginners an opportunity to capture good quality photographs.But cameras and photographs too have turned into a digital thing now. Smart phones with quality cameras are all the rage now; which means most of our photos only exist in the digital world. If you are someone that takes a lot of pictures, and end up forgetting or loosing many of it; then here are our tips on how to make sure your precious photographs don’t get lost in the vast world of electronics.
Get them printed out.This might seem like a no brainer, but how often do we actually get printouts of our photographs now-a-days? As social media seems to be the popular “photographic gallery” for amateur photographers these days, not even 3 out of 10 pictures get printed out. Over time, when you deactivate said social media accounts, you end up losing those pictures as well. To avoid this, try to get at least your most treasured photos printed out.
Save in more than one electronic memory.Whether you are a film student, or simply someone who enjoys taking selfies; one thing you’d have in common is the lack of space. Usually, to get the perfect picture, you need to take it more than once if possible; thus filling up your memory card. Try to back up your photos regularly into something less temporary. A compact flash card is perfect, in our opinion, for beginners. Remember to have more than one on you when travelling or going out on a job.
Back up into one main device.Having more than one flash card (or other means of saving pictures) can be advantages, but it can get a little complicated for a serious photographer that tends to take a lot of pictures. In this case, consider investing on something like an external hard disk or large storage capacity. Regularly backing up all your pictures into one main drive, will help you keep track of all your pictures and make sure that you don’t lose any of it.
Save your pictures online. Are you someone who travels a lot for your pictures? If you are, then no doubt having to carry around pen drives or even external hard drives can be problematic. Often, they tend to get lost or even damaged. In a case like this, it’s better to save your pictures online. Uploading it into the cloud is not a bad idea either…!
