    058 | Time to get your BACKUP sorted!

    058 | Time to get your BACKUP sorted!

    This episode is for those of you who need a refresher on how to back up your photos...or if you haven't done a backup yet and you know you really need to! Join Chantal Imbach and Fiona Staff as they teach you all about backing up your photos.

    Why back up your photos?
    What should you back up?
    How do you make a proper backup of your photos?

    If you find the idea of creating a backup of your photos challenging you most certainly are not alone. We find that people can get so confused and often times end up in a bigger mess than they started, creating 2, 3, or even up to 10 or more copies...of the same folders of photos!

    Let us help to clear up any confusion you may have and set you on the path to a stress-free process to back up your photos.

Lu Ceee ,

Motivated to sort my photos now

Now I have have clarity on how best to keep my photos organised. Great to listen to while working on my photos. Well spoken and down to earth. Thank you!

Alison K_Perth ,

Amazing for DIYer’s + New Professional Photo Organisers.

Fiona and Chantal are amazing at breaking down what is a very detailed process into easy to manage bites. Their podcast is clearly spoken and well structured. They bounce off each other in a way that makes listening fun. Having both of them speaking keeps you awake - not just one voice droning on. Also a great range of topics. I highly recommend this podcast for anyone looking to get their photos organised themselves. Also for new Professional Photo Organisers looking to get the low down on what’s involved in this type of field.

Alison_Perth ,

Helpful and informative

I’m loving this podcast and it’s the perfect timing when I discovered it. The tips have been very helpful to assist with sorting out my photos once and for all. I had spent some time years ago sorting out my photo library but with an increased volume of more photos and family I felt like I had photo overwhelm. Moving my photo library from one program to another seemed all too much until I listened to this podcast. Thank you for discussing such an important topic from backing up to actually organising the photos so they can be found easily.
