These days, most of us probably don’t even consider having our photos in a physical format. With mobiles, laptops, tablets, and even digital photo frames, why should we? Besides the fact that having a collection of photos is a great memento and keepsake, there are also a few other reasons why we should consider printing out our photos.
The latest infographic from Nations Photo Lab has looked into how digital data has taken over our photo habits. Nowadays, only 33% of Americans still print and store physical photos. What’s more, 67% of those with a smartphone won’t even consider backing up their image files. If we’re not printing out our photos or backing them up, the potential to lose them forever is quite evident.
Whilst many of us do back up our images or use cloud storage, there’s still a chance that our data could be lost. Statistics have shown that more than 40% of businesses will still lose data stored on the cloud.
More than 350 million photos are uploaded to Facebook every day, but wouldn’t it be nice if some of those photos were printed out and shared with family and friends? Having photo frames around the home is a great way of remembering those important parts of your life and can even help make your house feel more homely.
Take a look at the infographic below and see for yourself why you should start printing out your photos again.
