What's in this episode:

  • Improve Photography's April Photo Contest! – Use #improvephotography on Instagram  by April 30, 2015 for a chance to win a fabulous prize!
  • Viruses, Malware, etc. are not limited to those running Microsoft Windows. – Mac users beware!
  • Stop ignoring the security update prompts. – Do not give up the keys to your photography business.
  • Do not download anything you did not seek out.
  • Use caution when clicking links on emails asking you to download a file or check a link. – Even if it is from someone you know.
  • A single password is similar to having a master key to your data. – Use a service like LastPass or 1 Password to ramp up your security.
  • Stay away from pirated software.  – It may be free, but it is also dangerous & most likely illegal.
  • Apple & Microsoft are not going to call you to help you with computer problems.  – If you get a call from someone claiming to be them; hang up.

  1. My wife and I have been using lastpass for a few years now and I try and recommend it to everyone.

  2. After the many mentions of Animoto, I decided to check them out. I wanted to do something special for my father, from a memorial perspective. What an amazing service they provide! I selected the Remembrance template and it was a breeze to use. So, not only great for weddings, but for family gatherings or other special events. Granted, the video I created was from old slides (very old), this would be a great way to showcase a client’s portfolio and/or add to your current business. Thanks Jim and the IP clan!
