Backup Your Photos Any Way

The photo backup strategy differs from person to person. It all depends on the end use of photo files. It is not necessary that the one worked best for me will also prove the best for you. You can work out the best photo backup strategy that suits your needs and goal. Here is what my usual photo backup plan is. See if it meets your requirement too.

For instance, I copy all my photos directly on an external hard disk. So that this keeps the original backup of my photos. Then, I copy the ones that need to be edited on the main computer and edit them. Now I create a folder in the computer system that has all the important photos. Make copies of it on CDs, DVDs etc. A redundant backup is always good in my opinion as internal or external hard drive may fail anytime. Similarly, a small scratch on a CD or DVD can affect it badly. What I recommend is a mix of all these photo backup media along with an online photo backup.

So, the best photo backup strategy for me is a combination of External and internal hard drive + backup on CDs and DVDs and above all creating redundant backups of my photos on at-least two or more online photo services.

There are various online photo sharing websites you can upload your photos. I use multiple options to backup photos and be rest assured. Make sure you choose the best photo-sharing websites you can rely on. Few most popular photo sharing websites are; Google Photos, Flickr, SmugMug, SkyDrive / Onedrive, DropBox, Imageshack, Facebook etc.

So even if it’s not the ideal solution, backup your photos any way you can. The key is to keep testing the backup to make sure it’s working right! It could save you and others a lot of unnecessary grief.

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.

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...
