One picture is worth a thousand words. We’ve all heard this phrase which originated more than a hundred years ago. At that time, few people had access to personal cameras and a notion of “selfie” would be as foreign as electricity.
Photographs are indeed priceless. They are diaries of our lives like a paper trail from mamas bellies to first steps, awful school pictures to wedding photos, and then all the other weird and lovable pictures inbetween. I wish my mom had a selfie with me on the day I was born. I remember she used cameras that needed film rolls and then sent them to get developed. One time she found 10 undeveloped rolls of film. She took hundreds of pictures and has stacks of boxes full of them. She has photo albums taking up several shelves in her living room.
Everyone owns at least one mobile device that allows picture taking. What did we ever do without them?? Just like my mom, we take pictures of everything and believe the more we take the better.
What I love so much about technology is the ability to store my photos and not in a hundred shoe boxes. I have all these photos on all my devices but I find myself scrolling through, trying to locate a specific picture or fishing through them in an attempt to delete all the awful ones.
So, a recently discovered application called Lyve has come to my rescue. You can download it to your computer, phone, iPad or tablet. It syncs all my photos and organizes them. The best feature is the ability to share them. I am looking forward to this option as I can share the photo albums of our new little baby, due any day now.
Download the Lyve app for free. It stores all of your photos regardless of storage capacity. The best part is you can take it all with you on your mobile phone. You can protect this entire photo collection with one of several Lyve smart storage solutions. With Lyve all of your photos are backed up automatically to a local storage drive, giving you personal protection as well as the freedom to delete any photos and videos, freeing up valuable storage space.
When I asked my mom what she thought of this application she shared a dozen pictures of my sister’s new baby and said, “How did I ever live without this”?
*You do not need to have a LyveHome device in order to use the Lyve application.
I love how easy the app really is
