How Can I Backup My Photos?


The key to backing up your photos is to have it stored on multiple locations. The cheapest and simplest way to do so is to keep external storage devices depending on the amount of data you want to back up. For instance an avid photographer might have tons of photos to back up as compared to the one who click once in blue moon.

External hard drives are one widely used storage options to backup photos. They are cheaper in the long run as compared to buying the storage space online. Digital photographs today have become an important part of our lives. We value them so much that we can do anything to protect them from any kind of Damage. Some time back there was a news that a Flickr user had 5 years of photos deleted. He had 4000+ photographs and worst part was that it was irreversible. At this point the question “how to backup photos” becomes the utmost concern.

There are various available options to have safe photo backup. Ideally taking a photo backup at two stages i.e. before processing and after processing is a good practice to follow. We can’t deny the fact that taking a photo backup is a time and effort consuming task. The risk of accidental loss, device malfunction or corruption is still high in both these cases.

To overcome these hazards many photographers use photo backup tools. These are very useful while processing large data. Uploading images and taking a photo backup becomes dead easy with the use of such Photo backup software. All you need to do is install the software. Create dedicated folders and sync them with your online accounts. The moment this software detects any new photo in the folder it backs it up and also upload it on the synched online account.

PicBackMan is one such easy-to-use backup software that will help you to backup photos quickly and effectively. It has many advanced options and preferences that allow you to perform backups much easier than manually.

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.

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...
