Organizing Your Photos Resources

Cloud Services

  • Backblaze, a great service to backup your computer’s hard drive. It’s not really a service to back up a big media collection, but it’s a nice automatic solution to keep a hard drive backed up. Read about how it saved my daughter’s data.
  • Dropbox, the file sharing service that lets you access your files from any computer, and easily share files with others. Use this link to get an extra 500MB at signup.
