- [Voiceover] Hi. I'm Derrick Story, professional photographer, writer and publisher of The Digital Story, and welcome to Managing Your Mobile Photos. In this course, I'll show you easy ways to back up the pictures and videos that you've captured with your smartphone or tablet. I'll focus on making it automatic. The best back-up plans are the ones you don't have to think about using widely-available software, creating simple game plans that work for both Android and iOS devices, adding plenty of flexibility so you can design a back-up plan that's right for you.
We no longer have the safety net of shoeboxes filled with negatives and prints. We have to rethink how we're going to protect those valuable photos of family, friends, pets and the special places we visited, and I can help you with that. Please join me for Managing Your Mobile Photos, and let's get your pictures protected right now.
