What to do with your digital photos
Now that digital camera cards are generally measured in gigabytes, and the number of photographs that can accumulate are astronomical, it's important to consider how you're archiving your precious pictures.
Storing all of your photos on your camera card is extremely risky. Besides technical problems such as card failure or an accidental wiping, the possibility of having your camera stolen is definitely a factor worth thinking about. Insurance will only go so far; it won't replace the memories contained in your photos.
Backing up your digital files on CDs or DVDs is a sensible move, and something that we can assist you with should you so desire, but even they can be problematic. Discs are fragile things and don't require much in the way of scratching before they are effectively useless. A better method is backing up onto a dedicated hard drive.
By far the best way to backup your images is to both store them on a dedicated medium (such as a hard-drive) and have them printed on photographic paper. We can help you with all of these methods of keeping your photographs, your memories, safe.
