Restoring and preserving memories is one of the most important things that I do. If you are lucky to have photos of grandparents and even ancestors that formed your family tree, consider them to be the most valuable possessions you own. I like to scan old photos and make digital scrapbooks that I can print and put in a photo album or store in the cloud. Here are a few examples of digital scrapbooking.
Storing your photos: You have probably heard that you need to store your pictures in an area that stays below 75 degrees and has low humidity. Experts say that you should handle your photos with caution and organize them in containers. All of this is good information, but what if your house burns down? You could lose everything.
One of the most important things you can do to preserve those precious family photos is to turn them into digital photos. Once they are digital you can color correct and photo retouch old family photos to restore their quality. But that is not enough; you must find a safe place to store your digital photos. You probably know that your computer hard drive isn’t the ideal location for your beloved images. Furthermore, if you computer crashes, it takes everything with it.
Storing your files in the cloud has many advantages that you should carefully consider to preserve your most precious memories. You can view your files from your smart phone, tablet and computer. Photos in the cloud will not disappear if your house burns down or your computer crashes.
