If you’re reading this, you know it’s important to convert photos to digital and safely keep them in some kind of online storage. Similarly to the way we’ve swapped out books for Kindles and iPads, many of us have settled into the habit of digitizing photos and enjoying the extra space it creates at home. Pulling up files on your computer to flip through often beats pulling out albums of photos hidden under beds and in closets.
But what about the digital photos you never had prints of originally? It’s just as important to have tangible copies of your pictures you take on your phone and post on social media. These are the moments that are just as irreplaceable as the ones you have scanned.
Why You Should Go Beyond Converting Photos to Digital
The majority of people who upload pictures to such sites will never print what are actually some of the most spontaneous photos taken, capturing unplanned moments. Usually the photos we see on Facebook walls are random snapshots, quickly taken with iPhones and instantly shared without thoughts of printing them. The consequence is losing photos that capture the most realistic moments in life.
It may seem like a silly photo at the time, but imagine what it would look like if it joined other framed photos on your wall. When you’re dragging your feet in the morning, you may pass by that photo on your way to get your first cup of coffee and smile. If this photo lives only on your phone or online, you’ll be missing out.
Our old prints need to be converted to digital so as to create a back up, but don’t forget about those digital photos you took yesterday or last week. Chances are you don't have another version of those lying around anywhere. Additionally, what happens to all of your Facebook photos? Instagram photos?
Lucky for us, those at Piccolo feel the same way!
