A couple years ago I decided to sell my DSLR camera. I know that most people you know are buying DSLRs these days. But I just didn't use mine anymore. That was back when I had the iPhone 3G. The camera on the iPhone has become considerably better with the iPhone 5 and 5S. But even back then, it was just way easier to capture all the moments of my family and whatever else I felt picture worthy with my phone. I didn't have to check my settings or go back and edit tons of photos. But then my phone would reach it's storage capacity and I'd dump my photos onto my computer. If something would have happen to my phone, I would have lost some major memories (birthday parties, first trips to the aquarium, etc.). I didn't have a good system for keeping my photos safe. I still don't really. But with all the advancements in technology from Apple, you'd think they would realize that everyone from the technologically advanced to my grandparents are using iPhones and create a system that would help us with that.
iOS7 dropped yesterday and one thing that Apple has still not addressed is the whole digital photo flow (how your iPhone, Photo Stream, and iCloud work together... or should work together). For the time being, my good friend Bradley Chambers has written a short eBook called Learning to Love Photo Management to help you make sure all those memories don't get lost. He walks you through the different options out there and concludes with his own workflow.

Bradley has given me 3 codes to get it for free. if you're interested, the first 3 people to hit me up on Twitter will get them.
