This is a photo of me and my lovely blog friends, Denise and Dianne, taken in Washington, DC, in August 2013. We and our husbands had a delicious lunch at the Capital Hilton Hotel, where David and I were staying:
These are photos of me and David, holding a baby alligator in the Florida Everglades in August 2013:
I have begun copying photos from Photoshop and pasting them on a USB Flash Drive (portable memory stick). This is because I lost all of my photos when my computer crashed in December 2011 due to a virus. I was forced to purchase a new desktop computer.
Previously, I had installed an External Hard Drive to save everything I posted. But, after the computer crashed, I realized that the external hard drive also contained the virus. I didn’t want to transfer the virus to my new computer. So, I discarded that external hard drive and the photos on it. I lost all of my earlier photos of my grandkids prior to 2012. Doggone it!
Never use an External Hard Drive, which is plugged in permanently. Do use a USB Flash Drive, instead, because it is portable.
So far, I have copied photos from 2012 to 2015 and pasted them on my portable USB Flash Drive. I shall paste more as the year progresses. I store this flash drive in a secure place in my family room.
I read that people are questioning the wisdom of saving stuff on a cloud. Did you know that the cloud has been hacked?
How do you save your photos?
