Most people refer photos with different names like photo, image, picture, photograph etc. However, In general, we can categorize photos as the one, which gets generated from digital camera, camcorder or the scanned images using a digital scanner. Whereas the images (like vector graphics, clipart etc.) are mostly generated using graphics applications like Adobe Photoshop, MS-Paint etc.

While computer generated images are extremely important as graphics projects to develop websites, brochures and many other stuff. Photos make memory of special and precious moments vivid. However, many mishaps occur where you end up deleting all your photos. For example selecting “Delete All” button in your camera while reviewing photos or formatting your memory card or accidentally deleting your entire photo library from your PC, such things often happen and can be depressing.
