How and Why to Save your Digital Photos to DVDs

Guest blogger today is Tara Reed.

If you are like many people, you plug your digital camera into the computer, transfer your photos and delete them from the camera. You share a few on Facebook or by email… but do you back them up?

Backing up your photos and saving them in multiple locations (as in, physical buildings – not all in your home) is essential if you want to ensure you have your pictures for years to come.

Here is a video showing you how to export your photos from iPhoto to jpegs, so you can burn them to DVD’s (CD’s only last about 5 years but DVDs have an average life of 60) and store them off site. Or you can upload the jpegs to any other offsite storage and backup location as well. The key is, don’t have all your important photo memory data under one roof!

Here’s to the safe preservation of your memories!
