Save Your Photos Day
Photographs, digital and physical, are an integral part of our history as well as our collection of memories. These artifacts are important because they represent precious moments and days in our lives, as well as those of our loved ones.
Each year, thousands of photos are lost due to fires and natural disasters. Save Your Photos Day reminds us to protect these precious memories.
Save Your Photos Day was created to educate people about how to organize, share and protect their memories against mishaps and accidents of any size.
As technology and time have improved, the meaning of saving your photos has changed. It used to be that they were kept in a weatherproof container high above ground to protect them from flooding.
There are many options available to protect your photographs, but Save Your Photos Day reminds us to take the extra time to ensure their safety.
Save Your Photos Day is supported by the Save Your Photos Alliance, which provides information and techniques for storing and protecting photos.
They organize photo enthusiasts events to raise funds for charities, including Alzheimer’s. It’s a great way to fight a disease that can destroy memories, but also by protecting them in a form the disease cannot touch.
You should first organize all your photos, from digital images to old Polaroids. Then, start looking for ways to protect them.
It is strongly recommended that you digitize all of your photos. To do this, set up a special camera rig to take clear and complete photos. Once your photos are in digital format, you can upload them to a variety of cloud storage sites.
Google offers free cloud storage for a certain amount. You can also get more storage at very reasonable rates after you use that amount. Photos are meant to be shared. Get together with friends and family to share your stories, introduce family members and friends to people they haven‚Äôt seen in years, or take a trip down the memory lane.
Save Your Photos Day is also about saving memories. Memories are best saved when they are shared.
