I take photos every day with my phone. It’s easier to use than my Nikon and it is definitely more accessible. I try to back up my pictures to an external harddrive somewhat frequently, but it’s not always the fastest process (and connecting my iPhone to my computer takes even longer.) So when I get that dreaded “storage full” message on my phone when I’m taking a picture or video, I panic when I think of what I have to delete. Enter Picture Keeper.
Picture Keeper is a storage device that plugs directly into your phone (I have an iPhone, but it also works with Android.) Through the Picture Keeper Connect app, you can select single photos, albums or your entire collection of photos and videos to back up. And you don’t need an internet connection to do this.
I feel like I do a fairly decent job backing up photos – to my laptop, an external harddrive and to DVD when I get around to burning them. Backing up photos was one of the things highlighted in a photography class I took, and with two little ones I don’t want to take a chance on losing anything. Now I back up to Picture Keeper and can later back those up to my computer.
Many of us will be celebrating Mother’s Day in a couple of weeks, and will probably be taking a lot of photos. I’m fortunate to have my mom and grandma close by and it’s become a tradition to do a 4-generation photo over Mother’s Day weekend (we almost always go out to eat together.) Do you know how awful I would feel if I lost one of the photos from that day? Or if I managed to lose my daughter’s first birthday photos? Also, can you believe I have over 5200 photos on my phone?
Did you realize May is National Photography Month? It’s a good time to start thinking about backing up your photos.
The app is simple. You simply plug the Picture Keeper into your phone, and from the app you are prompted to select single photos or all photos. You even have the option to delete images when the backup is complete. Think of your child’s next school performance and you’re wanting to take a video – and you have 100MB left on your phone. (Not that this hasn’t happened to me in the past week or anything.) With Picture Keeper you don’t have to worry about having access to wifi so you can connect to a cloud. Or deleting precious images so you can possibly have enough space for a video.
The Picture Keeper is compatible with Macs and PCs, and can connect via USB port. It really is that simple.
A picture is worth a thousand words, which means I have a bazillion words on my phone.
