It is great to have digital cameras, but what are you doing with all of those photos?
Do you download them, file them so that you can find them, do you ever print them?
For those of you like me, these tips from Christy Van Natta, owner of Celebrate Your Photo's, are a huge help!
1. Get your photos of your Camera right away!
When you returning home from an event or outing, you need to download your photos onto your hard drive right away.
(*Note - If you do not know how to do this, you simply need to plug your usb cable into your computer and the other end into your camera)
Now that your images are in your hard drive, save them to a folder and label that folder with the name of the event or something that will spark your memory.
Once this is completed, now you need to burn these photos onto a disk.
Your final step is to clear your images from your camera's memory card.
Following these simple steps will allow you to organize your photos and back them up at the same time.
2. Label your images!
When you take a photograph, your camera will place a date and time stamp with the digital image.
When you want to search for a photograph, it is impossible to know what that image number was. Therefore
I always recommend that you label your images.
(*Note - If you do not know how to do this, simply right click over the image and in the pull down menu select rename
a box will appear under the image and then you can rename it)
3. Do Something with your Images!
What do I mean???
You took your photos for a reason, to enjoy them right? Then don't just leave them in your camera or
worse yet on the computers hard drive. Computers crash and sometimes you can't get those images back..
Please consider placing your images into a digital photo book or at least attend one of our photo organizational
