Photographic Memory: the Effects of Photo-Taking on Memory For Auditory and Visual Information

How does taking photos affect one’s memory of experiences? We find that photo-takers are more likely to remember visual information from their experience than non photo-takers, but only for objects they took a photo of. For auditory and multi-source information, photo-takers remember less from their experience than non photo-takers.
