Shutterfly Infographic: The Memories Behind Your Photos

by Gretchen S Posted on October 06, 2011

« Back to Family, Photo Tips, Travel

Between weddings, summer vacation, and special occassions, we are capturing more memories than ever with our cameras and smartphones. Understandably, it’s also leaving most of us overwhelmed by photo management. Shutterfly recently did a survey that found that 64% of people’s photos are trapped on their camera even though 74% of us think photos are essential for documenting memories. With half of us feeling that photos are a way to pass memories to family memories, it’s time that we respect our photos and do something creative with them. We created this fun infographic, to remind us to ‘free’ our photos and do something creative so memories don’t fade.

    I feel I am pretty good at keep up with the family history but even some of my photos get trapped. Always love new ideas to get the photo off of the photo album we now call the hard drive.

more about Gretchen S

My name is Gretchen and I am a “Shutterfly” Monday through Friday, but when I am not working with our fantastic team here, I am playing in the streets of San Francisco, traveling, or spending time with my friends and family. I am a novice photographer (or as I like to say “photographer in training”) and love taking pictures of everything from fun times with friends at home to beautiful locations across the world. I love Shutterfly because I can find easy ways to do creative things with my photos.
