Digital cameras and the printable pictures that they produce are incredibly handy.
You can shoot photos whenever you like, delete the ones you don’t like, and print as many copies as you want.
Just don’t make the mistakes that I did.
When my memory card is full, I upload it to my computer. I am terribly irresponsible when it comes to making backups.
Recently, my computer crashed and I was able to pull all of my photographs of flowers and family pictures and put them on CD before I reinstalled my operating program. I was so relieved to know that they were safe…
…then, I finally got around to printing them when I was planning to work on my scrapbook.
I was totally devastated when the computer wouldn’t read the CD. I don’t know what happened to it, but altogether I lost seven years of photos.
My advice… Don’t procrastinate when it comes to printing your pictures and make backups or your backups.
I use Carbonite now, a service that stores your files on its servers. Lose your files, including pictures, for whatever reason and the company will be restore them to your computer’s hard drive.
When you print digital photos, flower garden pictures or family pictures, make sure that you use high-quality photo paper and an ink cartridge that is specifically designed for photos. If you don’t, your photos and flower images will fade and get discolored.
I spent a lot of time making scrapbooks for my kids to give to them for graduation. When I was updating them, I noticed that the pictures in the scrapbook were faded. I thought I was using high-quality photo paper and I did use photo ink cartridges, but they still faded.
Now, I will print pictures if I need them in a hurry, but for photos that I intend to keep, I get them professionally developed by Kodak Gallery.
