How to avoid loss of digital photos

There is a possibility of losing photos either when taking them, transferring them, or during storage. I always turn off the camera before changing or removing the battery or memory card. Failure to do so can result in card crashes and loss of images. What other tips can you share?

Storage devices can get degraded over time. Additionally, a storage device may malfunction leading to loss of data. I store my work on a secondary device just in case the memory card gets damaged.

Print them out. I'm old school, and I believe a person is wasting their photos when they keep them on their phone. I know times have changed, but still.....

I'm all about creating digital backups. I back my photos up to the cloud and to a removable storage drive. I set things up so that it automatically does it every few days.
