8 Easy Steps to Backup your Photos

If you think saving your photos onto an external hard drive is a good backup option, think again. One fact you can’t disagree with is – external hard drive does not come with a definite lifespan. The chance of any mishap and accident are high. It’s not a matter of ‘if’ its the matter of ‘when’.

In order to have a solid backup of your photos, you can rely on Picasa. It not only serves as an easy backup option but also saves your photos in their original resolution. Picasa does not compress your images. You can rest assured of your picture quality.

Here’s how you can backup your photos using Picasa.

  • Download Picasa if you haven’t installed it yet.
  • Open Picasa, click Tools and select Backup Pictures.
  • The moment you select ‘backup pictures’ you see two options (Step 1 and 2) that appear at the bottom of Picasa window.
  • Here you either accept the default backup set name or create/edit the settings in Step 1.
  • You can select options as per your need. You can create a customized backup to DVD, or a drive.
  • Then you need to select the file type you want to backup.
  • The best way is to select ‘All File Type’ here so that all of your videos and movies are also backed up.
  • If you are backing up for the first time, you need to choose ‘Select All’ option in step 2, or else Picasa will automatically select all the pictures that have not been backed up since your last backup.
  • You can also opt for manually selecting folders and photos that you want a backup for.

And you are done. Isn’t it easier than you thought? Restoring from your Picasa DVD is also easy. Just insert your DVD and let ‘auto-play’ do the rest for you. The wizard will prompt to confirm the restore location. That’s easy too, right?

PicBackMan does exactly what it's supposed to. It's quick and efficient. It runs unobtrusively in the background and has done an excellent job of uploading more than 300GB of photos to 2 different services. After having lost a lot of personal memories to a hard drive crash, it's nice to know that my photos are safe in 2 different places.

LOVE this program! Works better than ANY other program out there that I have found to upload thousands of pictures WITH SUB-FOLDERS to SmugMug! Thank you so much for what you do! :) #happycustomer

I pointed PicBackMan at a directory structure, and next time I looked - all the photos had uploaded! Pretty cool. I use SmugMug and while I really like it, the process of creating directories in is pretty laborious when you need to make 80+ at a time. This was a breeze. Thank you!

PicBackMan was really easy to setup and has been running for 3 days now backing up all my locally saved photos to Flickr. My photos are really valuable to me so it's great to be able to have them easily backed up to a secure location.

It's AWESOME!! I have tens of thousands of pictures...and they are now successfully uploaded to SmugMug, where they are safely backed up, and I can edit and organize them. If you are hesitating about using PicBackMan, hesitate no longer...try it...and you'll be glad you did!!
Robert testimonialRobertonedrive
I started with the basic plan, went to premium and now on their platinum plan and it's more than worth the price for me. PicBackMan has saved me many tedious hours of effort moving many files between my various cloud and photo site services and my local computers.
Pausing Motion testimonialVladdropbox
I am very satisfied and surprised at the same time with Pic BackMan. The service is very good and useful. I used it to transfer my photos from Dropbox to my Flickr accound. I highly recomment it.
Dave testimonialDavesmugmug
PicBackMan was an answer to many a prayer. How can I get this MASSIVE collection of photos onto a service that cripples uploading? PicBackMan. I uploaded approximately 85,000 photos in less than a month. It would have taken me close to a year to get all of those photos where they needed to go. Nothing short of brilliant.
Barry Graham testimonialBarry Grahamflickr
Great tool for enduring your photos are always safely backed up. I backed up tens of thousands of photos and dozens of videos to Flickr in my 1st couple of months using PicBackMan. Would unreservedly recommend as it works seamlessly and copies your photos to Flickr in sets which reflect your folders.
Achal Gupta testimonialAchal Guptaflickr
This is a fantastic piece of software! I wanted to backup 100+ gigs worth of original sized photos to Flickr and after trying many many tools, PickBacMan was the one that finally worked. It worked flawlessly for 10 straight days uploading all my photos without a single error/ timeout/ crash. Absolutely amazing! I didn't try the other premium features but the ability to replicate stuff across multiple...
