Then they can be shared with friends and family, backed up, and added to a screen saver so you can enjoy them everyday.

If you are like most families, you will have a digital camera with photos throughout your computer, pictures on your phone or tablet, and photos in an album on a book shelf in the den.

With the popularity of social websites, people love seeing old pictures being shared online.  They bring back great memories of family and friends.

Being a family historian, I place a great value in family photographs having spent many hours trying to identify relatives from years past.

I am often ecstatic when I find a small note on one of these photos providing some information on a person’s name, place, or time.

One great way to save these special notes or details is to save it in the photo’s metadata.
