How to Recover Your Digital Photos If You Have Lost Or Misplaced
Them On Your Computer
You can always count on technology to come up with ways that will
make completing common tasks easier and more efficient. This has
been the case with phones going from corded, to cordless and then
completely mobile. Music that has gone from vinyl discs, to compact
disks and portable music players that are now digital don't require
tapes and fit in the palm of your hand. This technology has also
expanded to cameras. The new digital cameras do a whole lot more
than their ancestors did.
Digital cameras are a vast improvement over the ones your mom and
dad used to own. They don't require film, since your pictures are
recorded onto a memory card. No need to go to a photo processing
store, because you can print them yourself by placing the memory
card into a printer. You don't even have to print them to show them
off; because you can download them directly to your computer and
email them out to your friends and loved ones. When you're done,
the memory card can be cleared and is ready to take more pictures.
There are times that you may inadvertently lose your pictures that
you have stored on your computer. This can happen if you accidentally
put them in the recycle bin. If this happens, there's no need to
panic. You can retrieve them by clicking the right side of the mouse
over the bin, and click "open". This will allow you to view what
files the bin contains. Select the file that you want to save and
click "restore". You also have the option of dragging the file from
the bin onto your desktop.
Another precaution that you can take to make sure your photographs
don't get lost is to copy them onto a CD after you have downloaded
them to your computer. Remember that your computer is subject to
malfunctions and if the hard drive crashes, your information could
be lost. By copying your pictures onto a disk and then storing it
in a safe place, they can be downloaded back onto your computer
once you have fixed it.
There are times that you may need professional help to recover
your digital photos. Although most memory cards are reliable, they
too can become corrupted. Problems retrieving your pictures can
also occur if your camera malfunctions due to programming or hardware
issues. In these instances, don't try to retrieve the pictures yourself.
You can purchase digital photo recovery software that can retrieve
the pictures for you. There are also technicians that are trained
in advanced digital photo recovery that can also retrieve your lost
If you own a digital camera, it's a good idea to invest in digital
photo recovery software, so you don't have to worry about not being
able to retrieve your precious photos.
