Your computer just crashed and you lost all your photos! You spent hundreds trying to recover any data from your hard drive without success. The thought of this makes my heart race - ugh my worst nightmare! Today is Clean Out Your Computer Day so the perfect time for me to send you this message encouraging you to print your images.
Regardless of how hard Google, iCloud, Dropbox, etc. work to create a failsafe system, the reality is that no system is ever 100% safe. While we love the idea of security and permanent preservation that digital files seem to offer, the reality is any platform can crash go out of business, or hike their prices up. Print your images because there's no way to reclaim them once they're lost.
