The other day i got a message from a whanau asking if we still had their photos. They had only saved them on their phone and it had been lost. Lucky for them we were able to resend them a link to the gallery so they could download them again. We promise to keep your photo gallery live for 12months. After that its up to you top look after your photos. We dont guarantee they will be available after that ( We never delete the photos but harddrives fail and we have way too many to back up all of them in the cloud)

We recommend whanau sign up for dropbox here is our referral link for DROPBOX. We both get extra storage if you sign up. When you get a digital package with us you can easily transfer your photos from pixieset to dropbox and have them available online anywhere.

If you have a gmail account we recommend saving your photos into your google drive as well. They have a reasonable amount of storage space and you can have your phone automatically back up photos there as well.

Saving your photos in the cloud offers several advantages:

  1. Accessibility: Storing photos in the cloud allows you to access them from anywhere with an internet connection. Whether you’re using a computer, tablet, or smartphone, you can view and download your photos easily.
  2. Backup: Cloud storage serves as a backup for your photos, protecting them in case your device is lost, stolen, or damaged. This ensures that your memories are safe even if something happens to your physical devices.
  3. Space-saving: Cloud storage helps free up space on your devices. Instead of storing numerous photos locally, you can store them in the cloud and access them whenever needed, without taking up precious storage space on your device.
  4. Syncing across devices: Many cloud storage services offer automatic syncing across multiple devices. This means that when you add or edit a photo on one device, the changes are reflected on all your connected devices, ensuring consistency and convenience.
  5. Security: Reputable cloud storage services employ robust security measures to protect your data, including encryption and multi-factor authentication. This can offer greater security compared to storing photos solely on physical devices, which are vulnerable to theft, loss, or damage.
  6. Sharing: Cloud storage makes it easy to share your photos with others. You can simply generate a link or invite specific individuals to view or collaborate on your photo albums, making it convenient for sharing memories with friends and family.
  7. Automatic organization: Some cloud storage services offer features for automatically organizing and categorizing your photos, such as by date, location, or facial recognition. This can save you time and effort in managing your photo collection.

Overall, saving your photos in the cloud provides convenience, accessibility, and peace of mind, ensuring that your precious memories are securely stored and easily accessible whenever you need them.
