According to InfoTrends, more than 1.2 trillion digital photos were snapped
worldwide last year. Yet of all those special moments captured on smartphones, only around 38 billion - or roughly 3 percent - were ever printed. The rest? Well,
you may scroll through them on Facebook or Instagram, but many of those moments are lost in a digital black hole, never to be seen or shared again.
We owe our ever-growing collections to the ever-improving, high-quality smartphone cameras that we carry everywhere. "Back when we all used film cameras, to see those pictures, you had to get them developed,"
points out Cathi Nelson, CEO and founder of the Association of Personal Photo Organizers.
