What to do with your Digital Images – Southern Illinois Professional Photographer

So you’ve got this link of your gorgeous images….now what??


First things first, you’re going to want to get them downloaded. Having a laptop would be nice for this part. If you don’t own a computer, borrow one if you can and download them to a handy USB drive.

If borrowing one is not an option, you may want to look in to a backup service on the cloud, like dropbox. Most accounts are free up to a certain amount of space. My website will allow you to download them straight to dropbox.

Next. BACK THEM UP!!! Seriously, you’re going to want to make sure that you have your images saved in multiple locations. You just never know what might happen (hard drives corrupt, fire, disasters etc.) and I cannot guarantee that I will always have these images. So make sure you’ve got your booty covered.

For the sake of convenience, you can avoid the downloading portion. You can download the images individually to your phone, then upload those to printers like Walgreens mobile app and order images that way. This is a very less than desirable way to do things, but it gets the job done if you need something quick and dirty. LOL Keep reading for more info.


You have full permission to print wherever you would like. My suggestion is

Their quality is WAYYYY better than any drug store or grocery store.

However, if you do decide to print locally, you will need to have a copy of your print release. Give me a heads up and I will make sure to email that to you.


Please don’t. When you purchase the digital images, you do receive the printing permissions, but I always retain the copyrights. What this means is you can print as much as you want. You just can’t edit them, sell them, or submit them to contests without my permission.

I’m sure you love that trendy instagram filter that’s popular right now…but please just don’t. I have worked really hard to get my editing just the way that I like it, and the way that I feel reflects myself and my brand. When you edit the images that I have worked hard on, it takes away the integrity of my brand. K? K!
