NYT Travel Article in Review: What’s Your Photo Storage Personality?

Photos on a clothesline

While we don’t recommend storing your photos this way, it is pretty to look at!

Ever wonder which photo storage sites would best suit your needs? In a recent article, Photo Storage by Personality, New York Times (NYT) Travel columnist Stephanie Rosenbloom recommends photo storage services based on key personality traits.

 

While this article offers great recommendations for storing digital travel photos, we started to wonder—when it comes to storing printed photos, which personality type would ScanMyPhoto users fall under?

 

  1. The Social Butterfly: Do you find yourself wanting to upload old road-trip pics so you can easily share them on Facebook or Twitter for a #tbt or #fbf post? If so, Rosenbloom suggests checking out Photobucket for an online service that makes it easy to share your photos to the social media platform of your choice.
  2. The Perfectionist: If your life motto is “there’s a place for everything and everything in its place,” then Flickr may be the photo storage service for you. For personalities who enjoy uploading prints to a virtual online library where they can organize, edit, and access photos, Flickr is a free service any Perfectionist should sign up for.
  3. The Essentialist: I think we can agree that most of us here at ScanMyPhoto are Essentialists who are simply looking for a secure online place to store our vintage vacay shots. We passed along a few suggestions on general cloud storage options a few months ago, but Rosenbloom offers a few more suggestions—like Box or Picturelife—for Essentialists to take advantage of.

 

If your personality falls more under the “none of the above” category, then check out a few of the other personality types in Rosenbloom’s full NYT article. And be sure to contact us for ways to scan all your old travel photos and upload them to the service of your choice.
