Lose your camera or memory card before downloading those priceless vacation photos? Your camera is replaceable, but the images are not. Matt Preprost developed a solution to help reunite owners with their images. Hosted on Blogspot, accepts submissions from individuals with found memory cards and digital cameras. The blog organizes submissions by the location where lost images were found, so even as the site becomes more popular, it will be easy to recognize lost images.

The site’s instructions are simple; if you’ve found a lost camera or memory card, you can email four images to orphanpictures [at], including any relevant details that will assist the site administrator in labeling posts. If you’ve lost a camera or memory card or know somebody who has, simply browse through posted images to see if you recognize any. Great idea Matt!
