It is high time you realize that storing all your photos in computer or external hard drive only is a recipe for catastrophe. Hard drives are known to crash routinely, sometimes in a way so that data recovery is not possible.
The perfect solution is to use Cloud service to backup all your photos or make a backup. When we refer to the cloud, we're pointing to online services that store your images in servers that are available from just about any Internet-connected device. Some popular Cloud services are SkyDrive, Google Drive and iCloud.
If you are still in a dilemma of why Cloud is better than traditional photo storing methods, then here are some reasons:
1. You'll be able to share your pictures just about anytime, anywhere you have Internet access. You can upload images in bulk at home, show them to your colleagues in the office and share them with your friends at a restaurant. This freedom is it’s main advantage.
2. Cloud services routinely back up their data, so you should never permanently lose your priceless and irreplaceable images, even if your own computer explodes into flames.
3. Often we neglect to upload pictures to our cloud services for a while, ranging from 1 day to 5-6 months. We feel lazy to go through the drag and drop process just for a few pictures and feel that once the memory card of the digital camera or smartphone is full, we will do it in one go. Right? But what if you were to lose all the data in that time period? Worry not, since all popular cloud services offer automated synchronization and backup options. Which means that every time you click a picture, a backup has already been made.
4. Unlimited storage is one lucrative attraction, though for must services, unlimited also has a limit. It is generally around the 5GB cap, but there are services which do offer unlimited data storage in its true sense, like CrashPlan.
5. If you want to use your cloud account for storing photos for many years to come, then chances are that you will end up with a paid account. The advantages of such subscriptions is that the fee is quite reasonable and you get more space to store you memories.
