Thanks to smartphones and tablets, it's incredibly easy to capture the moments in our lives. Unfortunately, it's also incredibly easy to lose those moments due to a lost or broken phone. So how do you protect your images, videos, and music from being lost? With a smart backup strategy. Learn how to back up and store your mobile photos and videos easily and automatically. In this course, photographer Derrick Story discusses several different backup methods for both Android and iOS devices, highlighting the benefits and risks of each approach.
Learn how easy it is to store photos in the cloud with services such as Dropbox and iCloud and set up personal cloud storage with Pogoplug and Transporter. Next, check out storage options with online services like Flickr, Shutterfly, and Instagram, and explore how to back up photos manually with Lightroom, iPhoto, and Aperture. Finally, Derrick shows how to develop a flexible storage workflow that works best for you.
I think a natural inclination for a lot of us is to think we're going to back up our mobile device to our computer, and that will take care of things. And it's not a crazy way to think at all obviously there are some pluses to doing that, but there's also other things to keep in mind. So when we're talking about going from mobile device to computer, there are a lot of different files involved. We have music files, most likely. We're going to have some photos, of course.
If we're shooting videos, if we're upcoming moviemaker were going to have those files on there. And then, a lot of us, we're reading magazines, we have PDFs, we have all sorts of other files that we consume on our mobile device. And if we're backing them up onto our computer, with music and videos and photos, our computer may also become sort of full, kind of bloated, sort of like after a big meal. And then what do we do, right? Because this is finite space here also.
So that's why we're going to do things such as look at plugging external drives into our computer. Maybe using cloud storage for the computer also, so that those files just don't go from the mobile device to the computer and then stay there. Essentially, all we've done is move the problem from one thing to the other. What we want is a bigger solution. So what I'm going to do in upcoming movies is look at the bigger picture. We're not just going to move the problem from our phone to our computer. But we're going to incorporate external hard drives, cloud storage, so that we have both a happy mobile device, and a happy computer.
