Share some of the digital-photography tips and tricks developed over the years with the hopes that others can learn from my mistakes and benefit by experience. Leaving taking better pictures—a task that, often enough, seems beyond me as well alone for now lets focus on better organizing and managing a digital photo collection.
Digital photos exist only electronically and are therefore susceptible to the hard-disk failure. My first tip is simple: Back up. Back up early and often. Unless you have a really high quality printer you may want to take your pictures out for printing, so put them on a CD. That is the best way to store and safeguard against losing your valuable photos.
There is nothing wrong with being a little anal here. Put the pictures all in folders that are labeled appropriately on your hard drive. Make sure that you use dates on the folders. Christmas is just good until next Christmas and then which Christmas is it really? The same goes for labeling birthdays, babies first tooth, graduation, school years, so don't forget the dates. Back up the folders on your CD and remember that a rewritable CD, here is worth the extra money as you can add folders (with dates) from your hard drive as needed.
Final Steps to Safeguard and Save Your Pictures
Get those valuable pictures into a photo frame! There is nothing that safeguards the quality of a photo like a photo frame. In addition all those pictures can be displayed as a story of the season or event which reads like a true expression of your family history and times spent together.
Capture your event or family celebration in pictures and frame them for safekeeping and proud display in, picture photo frames.
