I feel its pretty shitty, because I have pocket SSDs that are, well, pocket sized.

Losing options is always shitty.

I think it’s a good idea to keep everything. I also recommend shooting in RAW. It takes too much time (if you shoot a lot) to have every RAW file uploaded to the cloud. Also, you don’t necessarily want to save every single photo you shoot in the cloud.

I recommend saving everything to an external HD when you import photos. I like Lightroom, and it can automatically save photos to one or two external HDs upon import. That takes care of your archive.

THEN you can create a gallery in Lightroom, and you can edit that gallery to your best shots. These I typically adjust, save, and upload to Dropbox. You can choose the service – Amazon, Google Drive, Flickr, etc – that you like most.

There are many ways to accomplish these tasks, and I’m sure everything people have mentioned below will work well. The key is to find a method that’s simple and easy for you to do consistently and without having to think too much; you want a system.

By the way, I recently purchased a Samsung SSD that holds 1TB of data and is very compact and lightweight. It’s also sturdier than a drive that has moving parts. For those of you who travel a lot, or keep your stuff in a backpack that goes everywhere, you might like checking out these drives. They are expensive but solid.


I hope this info is helpful. If you have any questions, just let me know. I’m happy to help however I can. If you’d like some photo tips you can download a free PDF here:


Good luck, I hope this editing / archiving info is helpful.

Happy Shooting!

Samsung external 1TB should be plenty fast. Less prone to failure. Runs off power supplied by USB. Samsung T3

Def buy one of these external tiny SSDs.

Samsung ones are proven, i think other companies have them too by now.

Not cheap but worth it. Comes in 500gb, 1tb or 2tb.
