What’s the best way to store and organise my digital photos?

Avidly snapping millions of images on a daily basis of lunches, sunsets, kids, friends, selfies, and pets (cats, there’s millions of cats!). Keeping a photographic record of your daily activity is great but what do you do with all these images? And where do you keep them all? Should something happen to your device and your photos become irretrievably lost it would be devastating. The Cloud allows you to store and access your photos and documents You may think your phone as enough space to store all your images and video but, comparatively speaking, that space is miniscule and will be quickly used up. What you shouldn’t do is keep all those photos on your Smartphone. What you should do is back up your device and the way to do this is to use ‘The Cloud’. You are probably using the Cloud already, you just may not realise it.

Today you have a choice, black and white photos are seen as “timeless,” and many photographers and viewers tend to think of them more artistic than colour prints.

Laser printers only use four colours and they’re designed for productive office work rather than photography. But, convention is not always a rule to be strictly adhered to. With performance improving rapidly, printing photographs with a laser printer is becoming more and more common.

The trick is to understand your printer’s limitations, get the settings right and use the right printer paper. Both colour and monochrome images can be printed, but some image types produce better prints than others. The best prints can be obtained from images with plenty of bright, vibrant colours. Good prints are obtained by choosing the right paper, avoid plain office paper and printing on glossy paper is a no-go. Comparing printed photos from a laser printer to those printed by an inkjet printer is not a fair comparison.

It is not a problem to change colour balance, contrast or even distortion settings before you print your photo, but one area you will need to get right is white-balance. Whether you have the best, high quality printer ink or the most expensive inkjet printer on the market, photos with a poor white balance just won’t print as you want them to.
