It’s where I uploaded most of my photos over the past 14 years. But then I got an e-mail from Flickr threatening to delete my pics unless I was willing to pony up $50 a year. So I looked to see how many pictures I had on Flickr. I logged in and scrolled through more than a decade of memories: snapshots of my road trip to Van Buren, Maine; my visit to the “Goonies” house in Astoria, Ore.; vacation adventures in Hawaii, Miami, New Orleans . . . so many memories. All told, there were nearly 7,000 images and videos chronicling my travels, and Flickr was holding them for ransom.A red box appeared on my computer screen. It was a message from Flickr, reminding me that from now on their free accounts would be limited to 1,000 photos or videos, … [Read more...] about How to protect your digital photos for years to come
Visit The Boston Globe Share on Twitter Share on Facebook Comment on this Scroll to top of page By Kari Bodnarchuk GLOBE CORRESPONDENT March 19, 2019 Capturing vacation memories can be a joy, but dealing with all your travel photos can be overwhelming. I know because I have just spent two years organizing 696,000 digital photos from a decade of my travels. I learned a lot along the way, including the importance of deleting the duds and organizing the keepers before trips become faint memories.

You post a few photos online and forget to sort through the others. Trips come and go, and suddenly you have thousands of unorganized photos filling up your SD cards and devices or stored on multiple hard drives and computers. “I think digital photography grew faster than anyone … [Read more...] about You went on vacation and took thousands of photos. Now what? Here’s how to organize them.

Omar L. Gallaga Austin American-Statesman Published 8:56 PM EST Dec 26, 2018 The traditional time for airing out your closets and getting rid of all the clutter and stuff you no longer need is from New Year’s to spring. They even have a name for it: spring cleaning. Although, honestly, wouldn’t you rather be outside doing fun spring stuff instead of rummaging through dusty bins and junk drawers? I propose you carve out some time from your holiday schedule to take a look at the technology you’re not using and consider selling, donating, recycling or just tossing what’s no longer needed. Yes, I know you’re busy. But there are a number of good reasons to do it now. You could pick up a little bit of spending cash.
