I love my iPhone. I love the convenience of having a phone, the internet AND a super-high-quality camera in my pocket all in one device. But with that convenience comes just a little bit of drama. I have waaaaay too many photos stored on my phone. Yes clearly not a first-world problem but a problem none-the-less.
Gone are the days of lining up a photo, getting the best angle, holding your breath and taking the pic. Then heading to the local pharmacy and getting them developed, waiting with baited breath to determine if we captured the moment adequately. Nope, nowadays we tend to take 25 photos of the same thing, snapping happily away, knowing we can simply drag those unwanted suckers into the trashcan leaving only the best ones behind. But what then?
Truth be known, for many of us, our photos are usually stored on our smart phone until we try to take one more photo one day and then receive that dreaded notification…….
Nooooooooooo!!!! Just. One. More. Photo!!!!!!!!
Armed with your smartphone, you begrudgingly find your nearest laptop or desktop computer, plug your phone in, and download your pics. You cuss as you realise you’ve also not updated your phone in months so the process is going to take longer than anticipated. At the end of it all, you clear the photos from your phone so you can take another 3o00 photos before your phone storage fills and throws a tanty.
So then what?
What about the 3000 photos you just downloaded onto your laptop?
Oooh yes, better throw them onto a USB so you can take them to the nearest photo printer and stand there for 25 minutes while the machine ever so slowly uploads your 3000 photos from your USB (because you didn’t think to only throw your favourite pics on there) and then wait another 45 minutes while they’re processed…… grrr!!
How many photos do you have on your smart phone? What do you do with all of them?
