If you use any of these apps from the Microsoft Store, delete them NOW!

Microsoft encourages Windows users to only download Windows apps from the official Microsoft Store because there’s no way to ensure the safety of apps that are available from third-party download sites. Well, it appears that Microsoft needs to pick up their game a bit if they want to maintain the Microsoft Store’s reputation as a […]

We Tried Trader Joe’s Amba Mango Sauce

Source: DailyWaffle

If you’ve rolled through Trader Joe’s in the last couple of weeks, a bright orange-yellow bag may have caught your eye in the refrigerated section. Trader Joe’s Amba Mango Sauce ($3.29) sat next to the sauerkraut and pre-made pastas at my store. The bag simply says it’s a savory fermented mango sauce and the ingredient list tells us its seasoned with “garlic, salt, spices, turmeric and paprika.” Needless to say, I needed to do a little googling. Popular in Israeli, Indian and Middle Eastern cuisine, amba sauce is often served with grilled meats, like kebabs and shawarma. Ha’aretz offers up the history of amba sauce in Israel, relating that it was brought by Iraqi immigrants in the 1950s. In his Zahav cookbook, Chef Michael Solomonov notes that Indian amba is usually chunky, more like a relish. The Arabic version is usually thicker and more viscous with the addition of fenugreek. In Jerusalem: A Cookbook, Yotam Ottolenghi and Sami Tamimi mention amba as a condiment for sabih, a fried eggplant “sandwich” developed by Iraqi Jews who settled near Tel Aviv. Since eggplants aren’t truly in season, I tested the sauce with another recipe from the Jerusalem cookbook: turkey and zucchini burgers […]

Backing Up Your Photos to the Cloud: A Guide to Getting Started

Cloud Storage Back Up Guide – We hear the term “the cloud” all the time.  But what actually IS it?  Why should you use it to back up your photos and videos?  How can you take full advantage of the features and automation? Here’s your complete guide to get started with cloud storage!

We hear the term “the cloud” all the time.  But what actually IS it?  Why should you use it to back up your photos and videos?  How can you take full advantage of the features and automation? Here’s your Get Started Guide!

What does it mean for my photos to be ‘backed up’?

My rule of thumb is you must have at least two copies of your photos (ideally three)!

            One should be on-site, a computer or an external hard drive.

One should be off-sitein the cloud.

Having that offsite backup is critical because if there were to be a fire or flood in your office, it would wipe out your computer and any external hard drives at the same time.

What is “The Cloud”?

The cloud refers to services that run on the internet, instead of locally on your computer.  Unlike the name implies, your files aren’t floating around in space, they’re saved on physical servers which are maintained by a cloud provider service (like Dropbox or Amazon).  When things are stored in ‘the cloud’ they’re accessible from any device that connects to the internet, without taking up storage space.  Pretty cool!

Which cloud provider company should you use?

There are many cloud service providers, but for the sake of keeping things simple, I’ve outlined the features of the four most popular ones:

We hear the term “the cloud” all the time.  But what actually IS it?  Why should you use it to back up your photos and videos?  How can you take full advantage of the features and automation? Here’s your Get Started Guide!

It may surprise you that iCloud isn’t included on this list.  Apple actually does not consider iCloud a backupservice- it is meant for syncing your photos across Apple devices (which it does quite well), but relying on iCloud for backup can make you vulnerable to data loss.  Lesson learned: make sure you’re using something in addition to iCloud!

My personal favorite cloud service is Amazon Cloud Drive (also called Amazon Photos).  Not only is it the most affordable (prime members get UNLIMITED photo storage free!), it offers amazing automation, and gives you multiple ways to view your photos (including searching with facial recognition)!

How can I use the cloud to make it easier to find the photo I need?

Most cloud services offer amazing search functionality!

Search by person:  facial recognition is so helpful!  The cloud will identify people across your photo collection and you can assign names to the faces.  Once they’ve been named, you can type that person’s name into the search bar to return photos of them. Very cool!

Search by location:  if you have location enabled on your phone, many of your photos will have location information embedded into the metadata.  You can type in a city and see all the photos taken there.  This is really helpful when trying to find a memory from a specific vacation if you can’t remember the date of the trip.

Search by keyword:  this is where it gets really cool.  Type in ‘beach’ or ‘birthday’ to see certain memories, even if the file names or metadata don’t contain anything related to those terms!  It is visually scanning your photos in the search! Technology is so cool!

How can I restore my files from the cloud, if my hard drive fails?

All four of the cloud services I mentioned above offer desktop programs to help you quickly upload + download your files from the cloud.  This means you don’t need to fear hard drive failure anymore!  If your hard drive crashes, you can restore all of your files from the cloud and you’re only limited by your internet speed. 

How do I get started uploading my files to the cloud?

It’s easier than you think! Download the phone application AND the desktop application for your chosen cloud service provider and follow the instructions!  That’s it!

What if my digital photos are a HOT MESS and I don’t know where to start?

Learn how to get your photos into ONE place, automatically remove duplicates from your photo collection, sort everything into chronological folders (automatically!), and watch step-by-step tutorials for each of the four cloud services mentioned in this post!
