There are 3 ways to share photos or videos, share information across your team, collaboration on documents or send out a file to a client i.e. "Share a folder", "Create a team folder" and "Share a link".

1. Share a Folder:

Dropbox allows you to choose specific people to collaborate with by sharing a folder with them. You can watch edits sync instantly across the group. When you invite people to your shared folder, by default anyone can add, edit and delete photos in the folder. You can set "View-only permissions for some or all members of the folder.

2. Create Team Folder:

Team Folders can only be created by admins and are automatically shared with all members of your team. This is helpful to share photos and videos across your organization. Here you don't need to invite each of your friend one at a time. These folders can not be shared externally.

3. Share a link:

Dropbox creates a link of your photos and videos to share with others. They are like an email attachment. When you send a link to someone, they can view and download the copy of your photos and videos. But they can not change your copy. You can share your links with anyone, even if they don't have Dropbox account. Dropbox allows you to set passwords and expirations for your lonks to control who has access and for how long.

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!!
