Sat, 25 Sep 2010 05:43:16 +0000 http://www.gabrielleblair.com//?p=492#comment-57926 I have 3 copies of all my pictures stored on CDs, external hard drive (I use WD Passport), and flash drives. If one fails, I should still have the other 2 copies.

Have you tried SugarSync?(www.sugarsync.com) You install it on your Mac/Pc or both and it automatically backs up your photos and makes them accessible online and syncs it all.

I am a freak about my photos so I back them up on my freeagent and sugarsync.

For around $24 bucks a year (for a "pro" unlimited account), you can store all your photos and videos on there, organize them, etc. It doesn't compress the files when you upload or anything. You can share your photos with family or friends or just keep them to yourself. I have around 3,000 photos on my account so far, but only a few are public.

I love it because if you need a photo you can just go on your account, download whatever size you need, including original, and work with it. Also, if your hard drive or external hard drive crashes, no stress. All your pics are saved on flickr.

Uh… I swear I don't work for them. I'm just happy with the service. flickr.com

It is a 500 GB…they are so affordable now, and I keep my little dock at work and carry it in my purse, so I can do work (digi scrappin' & photo stuff for blog!) at home, too!

It's awesome! and, i don't have to lift a finger. I felt like a load was lifted off my chest the moment i signed up!

Which is a portable, external hard drive. You can get them with a capacity up to a terrabyte! You can also purchase protective cases for them. It's a pretty popular brand. You can get one just about anywhere!

Follow up question:

Dear Design Mom,

What kind of rad camera did you get? I am looking forward to purchasing a DSLR someday, hopefully soon. Do you have any suggestions?

xoxo
Katie

I had to go big after filling up two 1 TB hard drives in under a year. (But I am a professional photographer and I shoot in raw).
