How ‘Findable’ Are Your Photos?

How ‘Findable’ Are Your Photos?

With billions of photographs being taken every year, the ease of searching and finding photos lacking meta data is becoming a big issue.

Another nice find from @thatrobguy – 1000memories.com does a great job of estimating how many photos have ever been taken, both analog and digital. Their analog estimation is astonishing with 85 billion photos being taken in the year 2000. As we shift in to the digital age, the initial uptake was slow but it’s not estimated that 2.5 billion people in the world today have a digital camera and assuming every person snaps 150 photos per year that equates to 375 billion photos per year. Put another way, every 2 minutes today we snap as many photos as the whole of humanity took in the 1800s. Mind boggling.
