I was wrong. Dead wrong.
Due to a technical glitch, my social media account was unexpectedly deleted--along with all of my photographs. Over 500 pictures of my son growing up, hundreds of pictures of our family vacations. Completely gone. Forever.
The situation was unfortunate and took me quite some time to get over. The silver lining was that I learned an incredibly important lesson that day: Always backup your important/sentimental files.
Since we now live in the digital age, losing important pictures has become a common issue and/or fear for many of us. It's because of this that I am SO excited to share with you a product that will revolutionize the way you backup your digital photographs.

Picture Keeper, simply put, is a USB drive that backs up your photographs. You might be thinking, Well, that doesn't sound revolutionary at all. Well, when I said that it backs up your photographs, I meant that literally. This USB drive backs up your photographs with almost no effort on your part.
Picture Keeper does all of the work, from locating your files, checking for dupes, and storing them onto the USB drive. No more dragging pictures to different folders, scanning through hundreds of pictures to make sure there are no copies, or removing your USB only to realize that you forgot 100 pictures. Picture Keeper eliminates all of the work and all of the issues with manual backup and stores your photographs in a USB drive where you know they're safe.
You literally just plug the USB drive into your USB port on your computer. Open the files. Launch the software. And then, you wait. That's it.
Picture Keeper comes in different four different "sizes" and is compatible with both Mac and PC.
- PK4 - Up to 4,000* Photographs
- PK8 - Up to 8,000* Photographs
- PK16 - Up to 16,000* Photographs
- PK PRO - Up to 250,000* Photographs
* Amount of photograph storage depends on the size of your photographs.
After storing over 1100 photographs on my Picture Keeper, I still had 46% of space leftover. The process of finding and backing up my photographs took about 12 minutes total.
With Christmas right around the corner, a Picture Keeper would make for a great stocking stuffer, or even a gift for that person "who has everything."
The digital age is a remarkable time. We have the ability to interact with one another from miles, even oceans away. However, the digital age also has it's downfalls. Don't let your friends and family learn the hard way that the almighty Internet isn't the safest place to store sentimental photographs. Teach them to backup and get them a Picture Keeper.
