Instagram is an online mobile photo sharing & video sharing service that allows you to take a photo and record a video to share with other people around the world. Instagram support is available for the Anroid camera phones, iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. When you post a photo on Instagram, you can add caption, location and tag people to the photo. Instagram treats captions and comments in exactly the same way. If you receive a spam comment on your photo, then Instagram allows you to delete it. You can delete comments which are posted on other people's photos & videos, as well as those comments people leave on your photos & videos. Right now, this deleting feature is not available on Windows phone. You can not edit the caption or comments on Instagram.

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!!
