But you need not de­spair, as there are many ways to avoid this, pro­vided you com­mit to keep­ing your pho­tos or­ga­nized and backed up to de­vices and ser­vices that will re­main ac­ces­si­ble for 10, 50, or 100 years to come.

Mo­mento says that print is the only proven preser­va­tion for­mat, and printed books or photo al­bums al­low you not only to fu­ture-proof fam­ily and travel pho­to­graphs but also to give them more mean­ing by adding text and im­agery that tell the whole story. soft­ware to make it easy to pro­duce beau­ti­fully de­signed page lay­outs show­cas­ing your pho­tos, that will go on to be printed and bound into premium-qual­ity photo books.
