Archive Your Vacation Photos

As much as I don’t want to say it out loud, summer is coming to an end in central Indiana. The days are defiantly shorter, the temps are already cooler, and you can feel fall in the air. Before you know it, we’ll be worrying about snowfall and  getting our Christmas shopping done!

For now though, my focus, like many others folks I know, is doing SOMETHING with my vacation pics! I took tons of photos on my recent trip to Cuba, and I’m getting a little overwhelmed. I have, however, tried to establish a work flow. This is a good idea for anyone trying to organize things a bit.

First of all, I made sure to download my photos on my home computer and at work  – see, I have two copies to refer to if my  phone dies, or if one  of my computers crashes.  Next, I’m going through the images and deleting those that aren’t sharp,  aren’t what I’d hope and anything that cannot be “fixed” with a phone app or Photoshop. That’s narrowing things down a bit.

The next step is to then burn these images to dvd or load them onto a jump drive. This gives me yet another copy, and something portable that can transfer newly edited images from work to home. It’s been said if you  don’t have at least 3 copies of your files, they really don’t exist. It never hurts to have a back up or two! In addition, I’ve got images in cloud storage , which gives me a little more peace of mind.

I will certainly be creating a book or two to share my best images. And I know I’ll find some way to display some of them at home. What about you? We can help you create memorable  canvas,, prints or metal prints, as well as  photo  books to keep those memories organized and close at hand. Come see us with your project! And remember, the holidays will be here before you know it!
