It's pretty rare for me to NOT have a camera strapped around my neck. On vacations, I travel with my husband and fifteen year old daughter who also have cameras strapped around their neck. This means memory cards and thumb drives galore filled with photos. 4,156 to be exact from a recent trip to the Cook Islands in the South Pacific. But what in the tar can I do with all those pictures?
1. Get them off your camera
Whether it is a DSLR or point and shoot or iPhone, the first job is to get them onto a laptop or computer. This does a couple things. First off, it is a backup. If the iPhone gets lost or stolen, the images are gone. If the DSLR gets left on an airplane, the images are gone. Second off, you can do a whole lot more than swipe your finger across the screen occasionally to remember your trip.
