Today, photo has become a powerful means of communication and a mode of visual expression that touches human life in many ways. Photo is popular as a means of crystallizing memories. Most of photos taken today are snapshots--casual records to document personal events such as vacations, birthdays, and weddings.

Photos are used extensively by newspapers, magazines, books, and television to convey information and advertise products and services. Practical applications of photo are found in nearly every field from astronomy to medical diagnosis to industrial quality control. Photo extends human vision into the realm of objects that are invisible because they are too small or too distant, or events that occur too rapidly for the naked eye to detect. Photos can also be objects of art that explore the human condition and provide aesthetic pleasure.

In a word, photos are around us everywhere. We can say that we cannot live without photos-it's true. But there is a problem always puzzles us, it is difficult to prevent photos loss which happens almost every day everywhere.
