A day in the life of a digital photo

From film to digital to mobile, it has become easier and easier to take and store photos. Most of us don’t even think twice about snapping a quick photo here, or there, or everywhere. In fact, collectively we took an estimated 1.2 trillion photos last year, with somewhere around 85% of those on mobile devices! So where do all of these photos end up? Most of us probably use some kind of ‘cloud-based’ storage option, but have you ever wondered what really happens to all those photo bits and bytes? There are lots of options for photo storage out there, but how exactly do they all work behind the scenes?
