Storing photos

It’s a great time to make sure you have all of your photos backed up.

*Disclaimer - I am not claiming to be a tech genius but I do know how important digital photo storage is. 

Now that we have captured memories that your family will treasure, you need to ensure they will be passed down for generations.

If your computer is stolen, lost, or destroyed, you can replace it, but your personal photos could be lost — unless you’ve taken the time to back them up.   There are quite a few options out there, so I suggest you decide what will work best for you and keep up with it. 

~There are several online backup services available for consumers.  Every time you add a new file to your hard drive, that file gets uploaded to the server where it remains until you need it. One of the biggest advantages to using an online service is that your files are stored off-site, so if there's a fire or a burglary your images will be safe elsewhere and easily retrievable.

~ There are many products on the market that you can use to back up your files at home, and just like those online services they can be set up to run automatically and in the background.  There are many different price ranges for external hard drives.

~ You can also manually back up photos on a flash drive or DVD.  It takes some extra time, but if you are very protective of your files it's a good idea to supplement online or external backups with manual backups to DVD. 

Photos cannot be replaced, reshot, or pulled back from oblivion. So don't delay. Setup a backup plan TODAY.
