Android Sunflower

Happy September heatwave! – I took this shot with an Android smartphone. The lens quality in smartphones along with the many amazing photo apps have made it real easy to take decent photographs. It doesn’t take long to create a few thousand photos over time but having a way to archive them for future reference can be a challenge.

    Hey Ed;
    When I got my “new” HTC One M9 in February of this year it came with bonus subscription for additional storage on DropBox (~20 Gb). Initially I thought that was interesting until I discovered that I could configure DropBox on the droid to automatically upload all my photo’s taken on the Android phone. It’s a great solution – especially if you lose your phone.

    Hi Rodger,
    I have been using DropBox and a few other cloud based services as well. It is a great way to save content. The challenge I have is archiving photos by theme i.e. cottage, vacations, family etc. – I manually do that now but it is very time consuming.

    Hey Eddie:) seems to me that a new picture format and/or header should be developed which has the ability to have markers in it to allow for database parsing based on a query on a bunch of picture files.. kinda like MP3’s..:)
    Since I am still working unlike someone else I know… maybe you can find the time:) ???? glad to see you are doing well!!!

    Hi Jeremy,
    There are some programs including PhotoShop that can tag photos similar to the way MP3’s are tagged. I just don’t have any experience using them yet. I’m about to archive thousands of family photos over many decades and want to be able to give each family member a copy. I also wanted them to have some idea of who was in the photo and when and where it was taken. Some info here that use a IPTC/XMP standard:
