Suggested/preferred method of keeping images of credit cards, passports etc with data?

I like to take images of front/back/etc of all credit cards, passports, membership cards etc so I have a complete record in case of loss or I need to see all info/present to someone without carrying all the hardcopy cards.

I then 'attach' each image in associated 1password record. It can be a tedious process to (1) take photos with iPhone, (2) email them to myself so I can access them , (3) save as attachment accessible to applicable record within 1password on MacBook Pro.

Currently using 1password 7.3 (version 70300020), family under macOS Mojave 10.14.5, and IOS versions.

Curious to see if I've missed the boat on an easier way to do this......or is this the price I must pay to be so data retentive.....

1Password Version: 7.3.2
Extension Version: Not Provided
OS Version: OS X 10.14.5
Sync Type: Family account sync

    Hi @limekiln!

    Instead of doing step (2) and (3) I would directly store the photo taken with your iPhone as a related item, using 1Password in iOS. In order to do that, you have to edit an item (a credit card, for instance) and in the bottom you will find a "Related Items" section, where you can "Add New File", which will let you pick a photo (a front and back picture, for example).
