Ask Design Mom Question:

Dear Design Mom. I can see you take many, many photos. I’m wondering how you store them? I am pretty new to digital photography, but I’m already filling up my computer storage. Any favorite solutions? — Diane.


Design Mom Answer:
Great question, Diane. I’m right there with you. Ever since Ben Blair gave me the new camera last Christmas, my hard drive has overflowing with the ginormous photos it takes. (I’m not complaining. It’s a rad camera and it takes rad pictures.) To keep my computer from getting too sluggish, I’ve started using external storage for all my photos. The best system I’ve tried so far is the
FreeAgent Go by Seagate.

Seagate offers lots of products — the one I use is made especially for Macs, but they have even more solutions for PC users. I like it because it looks good and because it’s super easy to use. No software to download or install. Just plug it in and go. I’ve never had to transport mine, but it comes with a handy little carrying case, and it will hold 320 GB. I wonder how long it will take me to fill it up? : )

What about you? Any favorite photo storage solutions?
