Your phone lets you take all the pictures and videos you want anytime, anywhere. It’s a luxury we didn’t have until not so long ago, and we’ve become careless with what we capture. That’s fine, except when too much is too much.

Your phone has limited space, as do many cloud options you might have. Do you want more? Either way, you’ll pay for it. We understand you don’t want to delete precious memories to make room for more, but what about duplicates? You may have identical copies of many photos or at least similar ones. Tap or click here for an easy way to get rid of the extras and free up space.

Global Tech News Daily

One of Kim’s listeners asked questions about photo/video organization. She also asked about putting together movies to share with her family. Have you considered any of this? Read on and you will learn something cool and useful.

Did she say 21,000?

Carolyn from Iowa asked what other options, aside from Apple iCloud storage, are available for storing and accessing her photos and videos easily. She said she has more than 21,000 photos on her phone!

Global Tech News Daily

Both Android and iOS let you back up your photos to the cloud for safekeeping. If you have an Android phone, you can use Google Photos. You can view, edit and sort them from within the Google Photos app or google.com/photos. As with iCloud, free storage is limited, and you’ll have to pay if you want more.

Amazon Photos offers free unlimited, full-resolution photo storage, plus 5 GB of video storage for Prime members. Go here to try it out.

You can also go with a secure external drive for the physical route. This Seagate model has 2TB of storage and will hold up to 500,000 photos.

Be your own filmmaker

Kim received another question: “With retirement on the horizon, I would also like suggestions for the videos that I have filmed with my cell phone. I heard of a woman who each year combined selected bits and pieces of video into a family video to share out. With the right program, I think that would be a very fun and meaningful hobby to pursue.”

You have many options for putting together a movie from various clips. Let’s go through a few:

Apple iMovie
