Quick tip of the day

Emailed from Gretchen L.:
“My family gets Memory Maker every trip and we love to take advantage of all the PhotoPass opportunities.  It’s not uncommon for us to come home with hundreds of photos to download.

On our first trip, I waited until the end of our trip to download all the photos. I quickly learned that it takes a bit of time to download each and every photo, and it was a tedious task.

On our trips since, I take a few minutes a day, either during a break time or once my kids are asleep, to download the PhotoPass photos to my phone.

If you’re like me and get a lot of photos taken, It’s so much more manageable to download them in smaller chucks, than wait until the end.”
