Photography top tip #6-Backing up your images

This tip isn’t one to do with the taking or editing of photos but how to store them. In the digital age it is much easier to fill up your memory card, and with decent memory card prices being high you don’t want to buy a new one. In this situation you need to back up your images. You can transfer the images from your camera using the software provided during purchase or by inserting your SD card into the SD card slot on your PC. If you don’t have an SD card slot you can buy one that fits into your USB slot. Now that the files are on your screen you need a device to back them up to. These are a few of the options:

USB sticks

External hard drives



Once you have bought your method you can select your files and drag them over to the devices folders. It is important to put files on more that one device, just incase the first gets corrupted or damaged in some way.
