Blogged about how I need to reduce how many photos I have stored in iCloud, and how weirdly anxious I am about discarding even obviously bad photos 😾: https://www.jayeless.net/2022/09/clearing-crap-photos.html
@jayeless I just use a smug mug account and back them all up. Its unlimited storage for the basic account. iCloud storage is short term to share stuff from iPhone to Mac and back again. I'd never use photos for long term storage.
@mpmilestogo Yeah, for real long-term storage I keep photos on my desktop's hard drive + a portable hard drive + pCloud (which I have a lifetime plan with with plenty of storage). I like Apple's Photos app's organising capabilities and how the organisation syncs across devices, but I think it'd be better if I curated what's there more. But then I need to make time to do that curation and it's not a fun job 😛
On the internet, everyone knows you're a cat — and that's totally okay.
