So your camera or phone is loaded with pictures of your travels with friends or family and the first thing you do is upload them onto the laptop, external hard drive or share them on Facebook and then… what…? Most of them will probably just clog up memory space and are forgotten about, but they don’t have to stay there. There are lots of things you can do with your holiday snaps.
