Santa Brought you a Digital Camera--Now What? - Articles Surfing
Although the final figures aren't yet tallied, the 2006 holiday season was a very good one for digital cameras. Chances are you either received one' or you gave one! So, now that you're shooting away, what do you do with all the images? If you don't know, you're not alone! Millions of digital photos are taken every day, with the figure growing exponentially. The biggest problem most of us face is storage. What to do with all of these photos?
The best time to start organizing your photos is before you have them spread out all over the place. Organizing the digital images into folders on your computer's hard drive is one option'with two major dangers: If the hard drive crashes, all of your images could be lost forever. And, images take up a lot of hard drive space, making your drive more likely to crash! So, you need to back up those images.
You can get a backup program, and back up of all the photos on CDs. Great' unless you lose the CDs' or have a fire, flood, hurricane or earthquake. Again, your family's most precious possessions'your photos'are lost forever!
The same is true for those who simply take the memory cards to their local photo kiosk, print the pictures, and erase the card to re-use. This is even worse than the old film way of doing things because you don't have the negatives in the event something happens to the prints. So, some people just keep piling up the memory cards! Not only is this impractical'you have no idea what pictures are on each card'it's also ridiculously expensive!
