Do you back up your digital photos? You should — there are no negatives from which to get new copies! I have tried to help friends and relatives when their computer suddenly locks them out — and the news isn’t good. So, how do you back them up?
You can write your digital photos to a CD, to a DVD, or you can simply copy them to an external hard drive. When I purchased a new computer, I kept the old one — and I keep copies of my digital photos and my scrapbooking kits on it. But I also have backups on CDs and external hard drives (I treasure my photos and scrapbook layouts — yes, I’ve made prints, but I want to preserve the originals. My computer is for photographs (digital from my camera and from scanning), scrapbooking and genealogy.
But my computer is also for communication online — a good reason to protect my treasured files. Have you ever forgotten to save what you were doing when creating a document or scrapbook page, then had a window pop up to say it was closing you down? Gr-r-r, why didn’t I save? I have spent a good portion of this week sorting, checking for duplicates, and saving important files. With all of the time I’ve spent creating photos, scrapbook pages, and researching our ancestry, I do want it available.
Have you checked the Design Center at MyPicTales? I just put together a 5 x 7 book for my niece’s family. It’s so easy!
