I’m a pretty loyal consumer. I love Starbucks coffee, Chobani yogurt and Apple computers. I have no real reason for being loyal to particular brands, but I’m sure it’s a combination of great products and even better marketing.
Judge me if you want, but the other night, my brand loyalty was rewarded. Allow me to explain…
About once a week, I export the photos I’ve taken from my camera to my computer. Though I edit them in Photoshop, I initially store the unedited images into iPhoto. I create new albums for each post, which helps keep everything organized.
For whatever reason, the other night when I was uploading my photos to iPhoto, I wasn’t paying attention to what I was doing and created a “folder” instead of an “album.” I wouldn’t have noticed, except that when the upload was finished, I couldn’t find the photos. Normally, it wouldn’t be a huge deal, but when the images transfer, I’m prompted with a message that asks if I want to delete from the camera once they’ve transferred….and I always click “yes.”
I was so mad at myself, because even though it happens to the best of us, it was such a silly mistake. I really liked the photos, too! In my angry state, I Google’d “how to bring back deleted photos” with little success. Ugh!
I had just about given up, when I decided to scan through iPhoto one last time. This time, I looked at some of the other folders…and there they were! They were on the infamous cloud, because my Macbook is also synced to my phone and iPad!! I was able to recover the photos that way and it was all because I’m a loyal Apple customer (aka – “technology snob”).
Oh. And I won’t be making that mistake again.
Photos taken by my brother….and recovered by me!
