Selfie Stick Inventor

Long before it got featured in a magazine in 1995; SELFIE STICK already existed since 1980.The founder is a Japanese man called Hiroshi Ueda. He was inspired to create this tool after he felt that he could not always rely on others to take the photos of himself during his trips to tourism spots.

Damaged Photograph

Damaged Photograph


A photograph can be very valuable because of the image that it depicts. It may be of a once-in-a-lifetime moment or of a time and place you once loved. But over time, the aging process of a photograph is inevitable. If not stored correctly, a photo can be damaged over time and you may lose a very important memory.
Below are tips you can apply to your photograph collections to keep them highly durable:

1. Do not expose your photographs to direct sunlight.
