Sexy live cam accounts forum - Consolidating all photos in iphoto

This is where it's important to remember that you could very well be deleting the only version of an image that you have.

First, just as with the i Photo or Aperture app, Photos supports multiple libraries.

If you've created additional libraries, they need to be backed up, just like the default Photos Library.

I’m not saying don’t delete images you no longer want; I’m just suggesting that your image library should probably have its own dedicated backup method, in addition to Time Machine, to ensure that one-of-a-kind photos are retained for the long term.

You can manually back up the image libraries used by Photos or i Photo to an external drive, including a USB flash drive, or you can use a backup application to perform the task for you.

Carbon Copy Cloner has an archive option that will protect files and folders that are exclusively located on the backup destination drive.

Add the archive feature to the ability to schedule backups, and you have a decent backup system that will protect all of your image libraries, including those used by Photos or i Photo.

Additionally, Photos allows you to store images outside of the Photos Library; this is referred to as using reference files.

Reference files are usually used to allow you to access images that you don’t wish to take up space on your Mac.

Once the images are downloaded to your Mac, the flash storage device is more than likely erased to make room for a new batch of photos. If you’re an avid photographer, your image library has the potential to be bursting at the seams with images you've taken over the years.

More than likely, you've gone through your Photos or i Photo Library a few times, and deleted images you decided you no longer needed.

Backing up and archiving your Photos or i Photo Library, and all the images it holds can be one of the most critical tasks you need to regularly perform.
