Why It’s Important to Print Photos

There’s so much focus these days on digital photo storage.  There are all sorts of suggestions out there:  cloud, DVD, flash drive, photo storage companies.  It can leave us feeling like we need backups of our backups.  But what good is a stored photo that you don’t ever see?  Whether you actually remember the days of film and negatives or not, there’s an important thing to be learned from those days:  we didn’t focus on storing our negatives in multiple ways and multiple formats.  The focus, rather, was on the photographs.

This month on #familyhistoryfriday we’re going to talk about getting your photos out of digital form:  the why, the how, some tips, and how to move forward.
