Backing Up Your Photos to the Cloud: A Guide to Getting Started

Cloud Storage Back Up Guide – We hear the term “the cloud” all the time.  But what actually IS it?  Why should you use it to back up your photos and videos?  How can you take full advantage of the features and automation? Here’s your complete guide to get started with cloud storage!

We hear the term “the cloud” all the time.  But what actually IS it?  Why should you use it to back up your photos and videos?  How can you take full advantage of the features and automation? Here’s your Get Started Guide!

What does it mean for my photos to be ‘backed up’?

My rule of thumb is you must have at least two copies of your photos (ideally three)!

            One should be on-site, a computer or an external hard drive.

One should be off-sitein the cloud.

Having that offsite backup is critical because if there were to be a fire or flood in your office, it would wipe out your computer and any external hard drives at the same time.

What is “The Cloud”?

The cloud refers to services that run on the internet, instead of locally on your computer.  Unlike the name implies, your files aren’t floating around in space, they’re saved on physical servers which are maintained by a cloud provider service (like Dropbox or Amazon).  When things are stored in ‘the cloud’ they’re accessible from any device that connects to the internet, without taking up storage space.  Pretty cool!

Which cloud provider company should you use?

There are many cloud service providers, but for the sake of keeping things simple, I’ve outlined the features of the four most popular ones:

We hear the term “the cloud” all the time.  But what actually IS it?  Why should you use it to back up your photos and videos?  How can you take full advantage of the features and automation? Here’s your Get Started Guide!

It may surprise you that iCloud isn’t included on this list.  Apple actually does not consider iCloud a backupservice- it is meant for syncing your photos across Apple devices (which it does quite well), but relying on iCloud for backup can make you vulnerable to data loss.  Lesson learned: make sure you’re using something in addition to iCloud!

My personal favorite cloud service is Amazon Cloud Drive (also called Amazon Photos).  Not only is it the most affordable (prime members get UNLIMITED photo storage free!), it offers amazing automation, and gives you multiple ways to view your photos (including searching with facial recognition)!

How can I use the cloud to make it easier to find the photo I need?

Most cloud services offer amazing search functionality!

Search by person:  facial recognition is so helpful!  The cloud will identify people across your photo collection and you can assign names to the faces.  Once they’ve been named, you can type that person’s name into the search bar to return photos of them. Very cool!

Search by location:  if you have location enabled on your phone, many of your photos will have location information embedded into the metadata.  You can type in a city and see all the photos taken there.  This is really helpful when trying to find a memory from a specific vacation if you can’t remember the date of the trip.

Search by keyword:  this is where it gets really cool.  Type in ‘beach’ or ‘birthday’ to see certain memories, even if the file names or metadata don’t contain anything related to those terms!  It is visually scanning your photos in the search! Technology is so cool!

How can I restore my files from the cloud, if my hard drive fails?

All four of the cloud services I mentioned above offer desktop programs to help you quickly upload + download your files from the cloud.  This means you don’t need to fear hard drive failure anymore!  If your hard drive crashes, you can restore all of your files from the cloud and you’re only limited by your internet speed. 

How do I get started uploading my files to the cloud?

It’s easier than you think! Download the phone application AND the desktop application for your chosen cloud service provider and follow the instructions!  That’s it!

What if my digital photos are a HOT MESS and I don’t know where to start?

Warning: Setting your privacy to ‘Friends’ won’t fully protect your personal info and photos on Facebook

I write a lot about Facebook security, and I usually include this “bonus tip”: Set the privacy level for most everything on your Facebook account to “Friends”. While I still strongly recommend that you do that, it’s important to remember that simply setting everything to “Friends” won’t guarantee that your personal info will never be seen by a nefarious stranger. Yes, setting everything […]
