September is Save Your Photos Month
Because of natural disasters, digital malfunctions, or human error, treasured memories are sometimes lost forever. To prevent this: Regularly back up your digital photos on an external drive or to the cloud. Display and share your favorites! Include dates, names, and locations with the pictures. Ask family members about old photos now before information is lost. See more suggestions at SaveYourPhotos.org.
