Digital Photos and other media files are usually stored in devices such as memory cards, SD, SDHC, SDXC, XD, memory stick pro duo and MMC cards which are widely used in devices like professional digital cameras, mobiles etc, and also digital pictures are stored in large capacity storage devices like external hard disk drives and FireWire drives.
