ScanMyPhotos has been mentioned in a new book about preserving your digital photos and videos.
Is there anything more important than our memories? Most of us spend endless hours snapping pictures and recording video in an effort to preserve and recall the best moments in life. According to research analyst firm, IDC, consumers take about 266 million photos each day, or about 97 billion photos every year, and those numbers are expected to rise year-over-year.
While smartphones and digital cameras have made it easier than ever to capture every fleeting moment, they’ve also created some unique challenges: many of our cherished photographic memories are locked away on computer hard drives or camera memory cards never to see the light of day again. These images are not only gathering virtual dust, they’re also vulnerable to hard drive crashes that could erase them forever.
The two journalists behind Your Digital Life (www.your-digital-life.com), Mike McEnaney and Greg Scoblete, have authored a new e-Book, From Fleeting to Forever: Enjoying & Preserving Your Digital Photos and Videos, that explores the many remarkable things there are to do with your digital images and, just as importantly, how to protect them for future generations. For just as digital photography has created a new set of challenges, it’s also unleashed a wave of new creative services for reliving and enjoying our digital memories. The new e-book includes chapters on how to better organize you growing photo/video collections, how to share your images safely and privately in the digital era and how to ensure that you can pass your digital photos down to future generations as easily as you would a shoebox full of prints.
The aforementioned website – www.your-digital-life.com – provides visitors with a daily dose of information on post-capture suggestions, ideas, services and deals in an effort to keep your images and videos alive and more a part of your everyday life. After all, they’re your memories, why not relive them as much as you can?
From Fleeting to Forever: Enjoying & Preserving Your Digital Photos and Videos is available now for $6.99 at Amazon, Sony, iTunes, and Kobo bookstores. It will be available at other e-book sellers in early May.
