In A Beginner’s Guide to Backing Up Photos photographers, Ami Vitale and Terry Sullivan offered a variety of tips and tools to help readers organize and back-up their images.

Here’s one of my favorite tips from the article:

"Keep a folder of your favorite shots: Ms. Vitale recommends storing your best images in a folder on your computer’s desktop, and periodically, creating a special backup of just these images. But, she says, you’ll need to take a little time and edit your shots after each trip or event, and choose only your best shots.” 

I decided to follow Vitale's advice and create a favorites folder in DropBox!

When I started going through my photo archive to find my best images, I was overwhelmed because I have so many pictures. Rather than trying to gather all of my most loved images at once, I started small and chose a tiny selection of my favorite morning views from the last year.  Over the next few weeks, I'll add additional images to the folder.
