How many digital pictures do you think you’ve taken over the years? If you’re like me, you’re probably snapping away all day long. I’m old school, so I remember taking pictures with film and the thrill of paying to pick those pictures up from developing and happily seeing the memories I was able to capture. I have to tell you, while I took a lot fewer pictures in those days, more of them ended up being displayed or put in albums for future reference. Dealing with my digital pictures is something I think I’ll get to “some day” and then never seem to get to at all. If something happens to my computers (and I have digital pictures stored on I don’t know how many different computers) all of my memories are pretty much lost.
Preserving Digital Memories with Lyve
How do you access all of the photos you take in one easy spot? I take pictures with my Nikon and also my iPhone. My husband takes photos with his phone too and they all end up a mixed up, jumbled mess stored in a lot of different locations. Lyve helps manage all of those photos by offering a lot of neat features, including a way to sync all the digital pictures you take – from all your different computers and tablets, to your phone. It’s really an awesome way to have at your finger tips all the photos you snap each day AND the ability to access those pictures whether you take them on your phone or your digital camera in one location.
I love finding old photos I took – especially of my kids. After I downloaded the Lyve app onto my phone and synced it up to my computer, I had a lovely time strolling down memory lane. Look at these lovely pictures I’ve captured of my kids over the years.
Lyve also just rolled a fun social sharing app called MIX that allows you to create an event so everyone there can share their pictures too! In addition to havin access to all the pictures people take an event, I think MIX would also be a great way to include family who, for whatever reason, isn’t able to attend a particular event. It would also be great for families who travel a lot to share what they’re doing with the people left behind. I’m excited to try Mix out very soon.
For now, I am busy syncing all my devices together take full advantage of Lyve. I’ve got my phone and laptop set up, but I still need to connect to my husband’s phone and all of our other computers as well. Next on my list is to get all of my millions of photos onto one storage device so I don’t lose everything when something goes wrong. Because I’m sure something is going to go wrong one of these days.
