Tech Tip: Make sure digital photos are stored in more than one place


By Raj Grainger

A good rule of thumb in digital photography is to store photos in at least two different places at any one time. For example, once you copy photos from your camera’s memory card to your hard drive, it’s good practice to make another copy to an external hard drive or upload them to an online photo storage/sharing site before you erase your memory card. This ensures that should anything happen to your computer (or camera), you will have back-up copies.

When utilizing an online photo-sharing site, upload your photos at the highest possible resolution. You can always make your photos smaller, but you can’t make them larger once scaled down. A few popular online photo-sharing sites are Flickr, Picasa, and Smugmug.
