  1. All my pictures, 60,000 of them are in Google Photos. Shouldn’t I also have them backed up on an external hard drive and if so how do I do that efficiently? (I’ll cull the file first)

    • Hello Mary,
      First of all, if you have 60,000 pictures in Google PHotos – I’ll bet many, if not most, of them came from your computer – so you already have 2 copies? The only efficient way to download all 60,000 is using Google Takeout (just google for it) My system is for Google PHotos to have my complete library of photos and every month I make an album of just my best ones. Then, at the end of the month I download just that album to a backup external hard drive. Google Photos really is trustworthy, but if something terrible should happen, I am happy just having my monthly albums of my best photos. I don’t bother “culling” ALL photos are in GP, just the best are downloaded, album by album

  2. My questions–how to do burst shots, have done it by accident. How to do a screen capture. (galaxy 7)

    • Hey Judi – hope you can join us when we have our Live at Five on Thursday.
      Burst shots happen when you hold down on the shutter button – it’s easy to do by accident! On the Galaxy there is a setting in the camera where you can turn the feature off it you don’t like it. Screen capture is done many ways, I like holding the power button and the home button at the same time. Here’s a quick tip on screenshots from episode 81 of our Button Show.
