In the months to come, the next step in getting your photos into the cloud should be to save them, and that’s where you can begin to build your own storage for your photos.
As I’ve already discussed in my post, there’s a whole new set of questions and opportunities that come with storing photos.
If you have a large collection of images that you want to keep in one place, then storing them in a separate location is the way to go.
If you want a little more flexibility, you could use a cloud storage solution like Box or Dropbox, but I would suggest making a new location for your images in order to keep things organized.
For example, if you have thousands of photos in your photo album, you might have a folder called albums, or if you want something specific for a specific date or event, you can create a folder for each photo.
If your storage needs aren’t the same as those of other photographers, then you might want to consider moving your photos to another location or building a new cloud storage server.
But, if they do come to you from a different source, then make sure you’re not going to end up with a copy of your photos that you can’t access.
