Leave pictures like these on your camera to make sure finders know where to return it! (Picture: Andrew McDonald)

If you’ve survived the heartache of camera loss (RIP graduation pics) you may vow to be super careful to not lose the important bit of technology again.

But alas, forgetfulness, sleepiness and just plain-right stupidity can result in losing the device.

One man, however, has a pretty nifty way of ensuring it’s returned back to the rightful owner. And no, it doesn’t include a sticker that says ‘if lost, return to’.

Author Andrew McDonald has created a handy pictorial guide to prevent camera loss. Assuming, of course, that the finder is nice enough to actually return it rather than press delete all.

‘All you have to do is take some photos – which you never delete from your camera,’ he writes on his blog.

‘So when someone finds your camera at the bottom of the gorilla pit they are able to locate you and return the lost property to its rightful owner.’

And he included a set of pictures to go with it.

In a move that we can only assume was inspired by Love, Actually, Andrew is seen holding up a white board predicting the scenarios in which he could’ve lost his camera.

A total of 25 pictures were added to the camera to make sure the finder doesn’t gloss over it (and perhaps guilt-trip them into returning it).

But of course, you have to have the foresight to add all these pics before it gets lost. So start taking those pics now.

And if you want to appeal to the finder’s better nature maybe add a funny pic in there for good measure.

Andrew added one in the bathtub with a rubber duck, just for laughs.

Here is Andrew’s picture guide to stop future camera loss:
