ProtectMyPhotos Launches Online Photo Backup

ProtectMyPhotosColorado-based ProtectMyPhotos launched today which aims to provide a foolproof online photo backup/restore option. If you’ve ever lost photos due to whatever reason — file corruption to a house fire — you would know the importance of such a service, where the backup itself is stored offshore essentially guaranteeing security.

First off, ProtectMyPhotos has to be one of the simplest backing up solutions ever. You download and install the app, run it, sign in, and that’s literally all there is to it. Minutes later, your photos are backed up forever.

The service currently offers two business plans. A free account, which stores unlimited low-res JPEG photos and allows photos to be viewed from anywhere with its web-based interface, and a paid account which costs $40/per year and is just like the free account, but allowing the original resolution and more importantly the ability to restore.

I’m usually critical on writing about these services, since I’ve found many difficult to simply get working, and I’m not a fan of the bloated software some are host to. ProtectMyPhotos, however, beats each one I’ve used so far hands-down.

What I love about the service is that you can start with a free account and backup every photo on your computer, but when you come across the need to restore — simply pay the $40 and do it.

This service no doubt competes with regular photo sharing applications like Flickr and Zooomr, but unless you want to end up restoring every single photo individually I’d recommend using ProtectMyPhotos. It’s simply a much better, focused option and avoids the hassle of doing things manually.
