I take a lot of iPhone photos. I could delete them to make room for new ones, but then I’d lose the memories. I could pay for iPhone storage in the cloud and keep them all. I actually did exactly that for a few months, but I wasn’t happy. Then, I came across an app that enabled me to backup my iPhone photos and have fun playing with editing apps, Photoshop and Corel Paint. It is the perfect solution for me.
Use Photo Transfer App to Backup Your iPhone Photos
The Photo Transfer App allows me to send photos back and forth between my PC and devices. I send all my photos to a folder on my PC after a trip and then back them up again from there to my external hard drive. I can open them in software on my PC to edit them and upload them into blog posts. I can also take photos on my PC and send them to my phone using the app, which means I can use my favorite apps, like Mextures and Haiku HD, to edit photos I’ve taken with my Olympus micro 4/3 gear. I don’t usually pay for apps, but this one is certainly worth it to me. It is currently $2.99 in the Apple store and is also available for Android.
Snapfish iPhone Backup
My sister has a different solution for backing up her phone’s photos. She uploads them all to Snapfish and then prints her favorites, giving her a great way to see her trip photos right in front of her every day. While I am a bit of a print lab snob and use a professional photography lab for anything I print, she is happy with the quality of her photos. She’s not looking for fine art prints – just printed memories.
Do you have a different solution for backing up your photos and finding space for more photos? I’m always looking for a better alternative, so please share if you have one!
