This week I sold my Desktop (with 1.5TB HDD) and replaced it with a MacBook Air and its small 128GB SSD. As I won't play games on the MacBook, the small storage space would be irrelevant if it wasn't for one thing: my photos.
I'm not a picture taker as prolific as those teenagers on Instagram, but every month I have many new pictures of me, my wife, my friends and my cats. Importing it all to the MacBook Air is problematic, because pictures (and videos) are big these days and I'm soon going to run out of space.
When I think of photo management I usually think of iPhoto and Dropbox. But it doesn't solve my problem. I need a way to save all of them out of my laptop. Not only that, but I have a few other needs and wishes.
Listing things always help me, so here are all my requirements for the perfect photo solution:
Looking at my list above, I have no idea what to do. Dropbox is out of the picture, since it would take space on the Macbook. I'm thinking of investigating Google Plus and Flickr, but I don't know if it's easy to take pictures out of their system. Flickr is tempting because of the free 1 TB storage, Google Plus because of their AutoAwesome feature.
What do you do with your pictures? Any suggestions? I'll report back when I make a decision.Publicado em Dec 15, 2014
