Do You Know Where Your Photos Are?

The numbers in this photo-taking and storing infographic might just boggle your mind


our interview with
Lyve founder Tim Bucher about the current state—and future—of photo management, we’ve been increasingly fascinated by the concept. From the hundreds of images on your phone, to those sitting in an unmarked folder on your desktop, to the countless others on various social media platforms, hard drives and who knows where else, most people’s photos live all over the place. The free Lyve App offers the ability to store all your scattered photos—all those moments and memories—into a single library you can instantly access from any device. And, when paired with a 2TB LyveHome, all your photos and videos will be safely backed up as well. Just how many photos are we talking about? A lot. Check out some of the mind-boggling numbers in our infographic.
