Find my past

This podcast I would like to talk about Your family pictures

Its often you watch the news and see that people all over the world are losing all their pictures and Memories as they are involved with a natural disaster of another sort of incident.

So this made me think what would happens if this happens to me? what would I be able to save? what wont I be able to save?

How do you decide what to save???

So I soon realised that both my parents and me have HEAPS! Of photographs that are all shoved into a draw in the back room. out of sight out of mind. Hang on what and what about picture frames on the wall oh my, so many photos There would be no chance to save any of them unless I stored this in the car and then what is the point of just holding onto them with out be able to see them

So then I decided I needed to do something and trust me it had taken me about 5-6 full days to digitise my photos but then I learnt very quickly that then once they were digitised I had no idea of who these people were as most photos have written comments on the back not the front…

So then I started to look were to store these photos once digitised if it was on the phone, laptop and external hard drive all these things could be stolen / damaged or just stop working and then I have lost it again

After looking at a lot of products and online I decided to use google pictures and it actually solved all my photos issues all at once

It had the capacity to store heaps of photos as it is unlimited storage

It is a simple app that you store on your phone that will save all pictures to the cloud so they cant be lost

And with google pictures you can do the following :

Automatically assign pictures of the same people together so you can tag them with their name

It will give u suggestions to see if the people are the same in multiple pictures

It records the location of every photo taken

You can edit the year and location to ensure no information is lost on those old photos

It sorts it out by year

You can make a collage

Make a Movie

You can share an album

You can make your own album

It will make suggested animations on multiple pictures of the same thing that you can accept or decline

And now the BEST thing about google photos is that it connects to google hub

And with google hub you can use it as a picture frame and you can select all albums that you want the photos to switch through it is amazing we you see some of the old photos that you would normally never see as the photos are kept away in a secure, cool, place

I will leave links to the products in the show notes if you would like further information
