What happens to you if you lose your stuff? Seriously, most of
us would lose parts of our lives.  Furthermore, getting some
of that stuff back may be very time consuming, expensive, or
impossible.





BACKUP & STORAGE There are many options for backing up your stuff, manually or automatically. As an example, Apple engineers were aware of the need for backups and that most people didn't backup. So Apple provides mechanisms to help users backup automatically: 1. iOS/iPadOS allows automatic backups to Apple's iCloud. 2. MacOS allows automatic Time Machine backups to an external drive as well as backups to the iCloud.

And if you believe in it, you're not only a sucker, you've been brainwashed into accepting your lot as a 2nd class digital citizen. The cloud is a lie because it convinces you of at least two Stockholm syndrome things: (1) you don't deserve to own or control your own data, and (2) security for your data does not matter.

ORGANIZING FOLDERS AND FILES Managing Your Digital Stuff - Organizing Folders and Files http://edu-observatory.org/olli/Manage/Organizing.html Everybody organizes differently. Many have a mental image of the structure of their files and folders. Your instructor created a folder PHOTO_WORK. Within that folder are folders for every photo shoot event starting with the date as part of the folder name. Example:

PRINTING No matter how far digital photography has come, there is still nothing that can beat the sense of wonder you feel when you hold a nicely printed set of photos in your hands, or the awe you feel when viewing a large print of a magnificent scene hanging on a wall. The journey of a photo from a digital file on your memory card to a well color balanced, gorgeous looking print is often long. On many occasions photographers simply give up after their first attempt when not getting the results they expected.
