How do you store your kids photos?

Postby berriestan » Fri Nov 19, 2010 9:08 am

Hi,

I'm one diligent mum who regularly develops my kids pictures and arrange them nicely in albums. I hope these will be a good momento for them when they grow up.

But I think this will not work cos I'm seriously running out of space! And it takes lots of time and effort to do so.

I would like to know how other parents are managing this. Can u share pls?

I have softcopies stored in a removable hard disk.

Some of my favorites in my iPhone.

And all of them developed into prints, old school. Just in case things crash and all those precious pics are lost.

so far i developed very little of the photos. i know the risk of hard disk failure but so far i backup on two hard disks. so hopefully that will be safe enough!

In my computer.

Just to be safe, also in an external hard disk.

Just to be safer, in another external hard disk.

Just to be very very safe, burnt onto DVDs.

Next step would be to consider off-site storage but I have not reached that level of paranoia yet.

:lol: :lol:

kids photos are valuable and it is only right for us to capture their moments at different stage of their life e.g. Their 1st walk, their 1st day in childcare, their 1st day in primary school...


Before 2002, i used to use films and developed into 4R and put in album...later face similar issues w tonnes of diff album... Then come the digital edge! Everything can be stored in hard disk... I move over since then, and organise my photos based on yrs... Since 2002 till now, every yr, one
directory... And with backup... If i encountered any failure, i still got separate backup... It will only be god's will if my primary and backups failed at the same time!


Now the cons about this... My mom had been complaining abt lack of photos of her grandsons... I bought her a digital photo album and she rejected it... Waste of electrical energy... Now owe her hundreds, if not thousands, of backlog... I understand it is good to have real photo develope, can touch and feel, than digital display...but if space is a constraint, u don't have much of a choice de.

Hi,

That's the problem.. The space saving way of storing them digitally is that there're no physical photos to view.

Any idea of useful photo managing apps on iPad?

I store on iPad, anytime can view.

Backup in HDD.

The default photo album that comes with iPad is good enough.

Can even function as digital photo frame.

used to save photos in folders, by month/year in HDD + burn in DVD..

later paranoid the whole lot crash / gone (as i did not develop a single photo since birth) so spent $500 to develop photos of my gal since birth till 2008..

now in the process of cherry picking 2009 photos to develop..

when i'm done with cherry picking and developing the 2010 photos, i will develop bit by bit going forward to avoid humongous developing bill.. :(
