Assuming they survive the solar flare incident, there is the historical legacy element as well. historians will be looking through these photos for centuries.

The images that have been hard-printed and published at least. And I hope some prints that I've sold and given away are well-liked enough for people to keep them around a while.

But social media and other online-only images are fleeting.

More so than you can imagine, with a reasonable amount of time all hard drives in private hands will be erased via an event like the  1859 Carrington Event - which was the first time we noticed the effects as a species since its the first time we had primitive electronics to be destroyed/erased. The USA among other nations is currently on a twenty year race to shield critical data from eraser (money, medical and science archives etc)

Most Cloud companies have no such defences as there considered a waste of money.

Imagine all hard drives but the military being erased overnight and the chaos and loss of data that entails.

In some future shielding will probably be standard.
