The One Reason Why You Shouldn't Only Keep Your Photos On Your iPhone

October 19, 2016 by Justine Schwartz
shefinds | Style

We’re all guilty of taking way too many iPhone photos and then never deleting them… I have about a million (rough estimate) pictures on mine–everything from cute pics of my daughter that I actually really should get printed and framed, to total throw-away shots. It’s so easy to start hoarding iPhone photos… once you start, you can’t stop and soon it’s time for an upgrade on your phone and you have to decide what to do with literally thousands of photos that are a combinations of keepers and crummy ones.

But there is a reason that you shouldn’t ONLY have your photos stored on your iPhone–it’s that you can only pull images down from the iCloud one device at a time, so if you start a new collection every time you get a new phone, later in life when you want to pull up a specific photo it will be really difficult to track it down. You’ll have to pull your iClouds down one at a time, then literally go through thousands of photos. You won’t know exactly which device (including iPads which also take pictures!) the shot you’re trying to find is from. It will be a nightmare!

To bypass this, you should do the following steps:

Backup your phone to your computer or a hard drive. You should backup your phone to the iCloud regularly, but before you get a new phone you should also backup your photos to a computer or hard drive. This will make them even more accessible

Use a site like Flickr to create an album of your favorites. You should keep an edited selection of your most favorite photos somewhere–I suggest on online photo sharing site like Flickr or Shutterfly. Then, when your daughter turns 18, you can easily find that cute naked baby photo to show her first boyfriend.

Delete photos once a month. You will need to tame the beast that is your photo library to make this whole process run smoother. Once a month, set aside a half an hour just for deleting photos. Make it a recurring cal invite. On the train or whenever you have limited internet connectivity is a perfect time to do it.
