How to organise your photos online?

Last Updated :

Your precious photos of memorable events are the most valuable asset one can boast of in digital world. And it would truely be a heartbreaking moment if you were to loose everything, right?

That is precisely why making a backup of all your photos online is a good idea, as the thought of a hard disk crash or burglary robbing you of more than just your computer is a horrifying one.

It will also bring order to chaos, as photos will be neatly organised and sorted in folders. This makes it easy to search for a particular photo among thousands of photos, which can be a superhuman effort if someone does it manually.

Here’s how you can get everything safe and protected.

  • There are plenty of online options to backup your photos, for example Flickr or social networking site Facebook. Flickr allows you to store 300MB every month but that is a very small storage space for people with heavy photo traffic. Photobucket and Smugmug are also good options.

  • Picasa is also a decent software as well as sharing platform, in which you can organise your photos online in folders. You need a google account and can store photos and share them with friends and family as well.

  • A great way of storing large number of photos is by backing up everything in Google Drive. It gives 15 GB space for free to store your files and is reliable too. All you need is a google account and you can start uploading. Skydrive for Windows users is also a great option.

  • If you are an all-Apple kind of person, then iCloud is the best and safest option for you to store all of your precious stuff.

  • Professional photographers are going to need more than 15GB promised by Google Drive. So they can opt for various sites that provide unlimited storage space for a specific monthly or annual fee.

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.
