Images pile up very quickly on your phone / tablet device specially when your device has an above average camera. Like an iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch. So when you have 100s and 1000s of photos piled up in your device, it becomes very critical to create a backup before anything goes wrong. There are many ways to move or copy photos from your iPhone or any other iOS device to a computer or cloud backup. Backing up photos on regular basis ensures that your photos are safely stored.

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!
