How to Make Most of Festival Photo’s

Were you at a festival this weekend or plan to be at some point over the summer, then this article is just what you need.  This articles shares some of our top tips for how you can use your festival photo’s from this year and past years in creative and fun ways.

First of all you need to grab a copy of all your festival photo’s.  You can do that in a few different ways, grab them from your phone, camera etc directly or if you have shared them online and aren’t sure where you had them originally that’s fine. Download digi.me, sync your social media accounts and then do a search or two to find the pictures you are after.  You may need to do a date range search or you may just need to search for the name of the festival. It depends what you put in the description when you uploaded the pics.

Once you have the copy of your pictures you can start doing all sorts of things with them.

  • You could make a photo collage with them and put it in a frame.
  • Make a photo book of your festival highlights to leave on the coffee table for when friends come round.
  • Turn your pics into a photo clock with a picture for each hour of the day.
  • Put all your photo’s into a digital photo frame and see those festival moments all summer long.
  • Set your festival photo’s folder as your screensaver or screen background and see those special moments unfold.
  • Create a video of your festival photo’s and share it with your friends on social media.

Facebook Photo Bug Scare

It has recently been announced across tech news sites that this week a bug has been discovered which allowed a user to delete entire photo albums worth of images with a single API call.  The album didn’t even need to belong to the user in question!

The bug itself was found in the mobile version of the Facebook Graph API and has now been fixed thanks to an honest researcher and the quick work of the Facebook development team.  It did however demonstrate how vulnerable our personal data is to such attacks and once again reminds us of the importance of having our own copies of our data.  Our photographs are precious to us and no one would like to lose them to a bug like this.

Thankfully on this occasion the bug was found by a reputable person and not someone who was looking to damage the Facebook network.  Next time we might not be so fortunate. Either way make sure you have a copy of your social media data by downloading Digi Me today!
