Back up Photos on the Road

Traveling for the holidays? Or just travel in general? Digital cameras let you shoot lots of pictures, but where will you store them? Glenn Fleishman and I co-wrote an article for Macworld about how to deal with an abundance of digital photos, with an eye toward traveling without a laptop in tow. It’s now available online: Back up photos on the road.

When I traveled to Africa last year, I did bring my laptop, but I didn’t haul it around everywhere. I found that a combination of having a few memory cards (which even now are much less expensive than when I bought some 12 months ago) and a $30 Apple iPod Camera Connector worked well. I brought back more than 2,000 pictures intact.
