10 Tips for an Emptier Camera Roll

If you're anything like me then there's a good chance that your phone's camera roll is fit to burst. I understand just how hard it is to refrain from capturing every slightly pink-twinged sunset or to walk past a really nice tree without making everyone stop whilst you take the perfect picture. But what actually happens to these pictures? Occasionally a tiny percentage of them will feature in a pointless tweet or instagram post before they are lost in the abyss among your thousands of other photos. Yet it is still so hard to part with them. So here are my tips for an emptier camera roll:

  • Make a conscious effort to only keep the best picture if you take multiples.
  • If you screenshot something, delete it as soon as you've showed it to your friend (is there any other reason to screenshot?)
  • If you're a selfie lover, don't keep the 57 other failed attempts, it wastes space and would be slightly embarrassing if someone came across them.
  • If your friend doesn't like the picture of them, delete it, you're not going to be allowed to show it to anyone ever and hopefully it means that they'll do the same for you when you look awful in future.
  • If you go to the zoo, don't take a picture of every animal you see. I guarantee you will never look at any of them again. 
  • Remember, if you send a picture over  iMessage or Facebook messenger it automatically saves to your camera roll and there's probably a 95% chance you don't need to keep a picture of the shoes that you just begged your Mum for over text. 
  • There is absolutely no need to take a picture of your dinner, it's only going to cause you inconvenient cravings in the future.
  • Panoramas never work, just don't even bother taking them.
  • If your eyebrows look bad in an old pic just delete it because it's probably only going to make you sad to look at.
  • And finally, ask yourself: 'do I really need to take a picture of this cocktail/stray cat/cool leaf/tea cosy?' and more often than not you'll find that the answer is probably no. 

Hopefully these tips can help you to make a conscious effort to free up some space on your phone (so you can take even more pictures)! Let me know if you have any more suggestions because I need all the help I can get. If I can sift through over 7000 photos you can do it too. 

Thanks for reading!
