1 Gigabyte (GB) will hold between forty and two thousand photos depending on the source of the photos. A relatively recent digital camera on default settings is probably around 300 images per gigabyte. If you have a look at your photos and see what sort of file sizes they're listed at you can get a much more accurate answer. They'll probably be listed in megabytes and there are 1024 megabytes per gigabyte.

Popular USB pen drive sizes at the moment are 4, 8 and 16GB. If you find out you need more than 8GB or so then you might want to look at a portable external hard drive. They're about the size of a normal scientific (high school) calculator and start at around £30 for 160GB or 250GB.

There's only one type of memory stick and the only thing to look out for are the read and write speeds, anything over 20MB/s for both is great and over 10MB/s is good. Anything much less than 5MB/s probably isn't worth getting. Portable hard drives will all run at the same speed.

why dont store them on dvd-+r thats assuming you have a dvd drive on your laptop then you can label and store them easily :)

If the photos are in one folder, you can right click on the folder, and select "Properties", this will tell you the memory capacity of the folder.
You then know in Mbs'/GBs' how big you need the USB drive to be.

A USB hard drive for that many photo's?

A thousand or more pics on a modern camera is 4 to 8 gb

might as well add some for the future 16gb

then you tend to think of other things you need to backup, and you need more, and once you get to 32gb flash you might as well buy a hard drive

Would this be ok for a 16gb one? i will only be saving photos on it i have no need for anything else to be backed up on my personal laptop. I can get it for 14.99 not as shown on the amazon link...or is that still too much?
