12.2. iPhoto Backups

Bad things can happen to digital photos. They can be accidentally deleted with a slip of your pinkie. They can become mysteriously corrupted and subsequently unopenable. They can get mangled by a crashed hard disk and be lost forever. Losing one-of-a-kind family photos can be extremely painful, and in some documented cases, even marriage threatening. So if you value your digital photos, you should back them up regularly, perhaps after each major batch of new photos joins your collection.

12.2.1. Backing Up to CD or DVD

The quickest and most convenient way to back up your Photo Library is to archive it onto a blank CD or DVD using iPhoto's Burn command, as described on the previous pages. (If you don't have a disc-burning drive, don't worry; the next section explains how to perform a complete iPhoto backup without burning a disc.)
