Are you a Picture Keeper? Since becoming a Mom, I feel the need to photograph EVERYTHING. Whether it be birth of my child, their first loose tooth or a messy spaghetti face, I have it all on film (aka in jpeg form). A few years ago, I was working on my computer when my screen turned blue. No matter what key I pressed, the screen remained that ugly blue colour. I pressed the power off button, waited a few minutes and powered it up to find that same blue screen. I am not a computer person at all!! Give me the internet, word documents, and social media and sure I can whiz around them and create magic. Error messages, frozen screens and the blue-screen-of-death (which I later learned is the computer terminology), is something that truly scares me. As mentioned in other computer related posts, my dad is my knight in shining armor when it comes to computer problems. Immediately, I called him up and was given the heart breaking news that my beloved laptop was dead.
A dead computer is not the end of the world, unless like me, you saved your entire life to it and only it. I was devastated. All the pictures I had taken from the moment I peed on the pregnancy test until that day were gone! No more chubby DS7 baby pictures, no more 1st zoo trip, 1st Christmas, 1st sled ride…all gone! That day I learned a valuable lesson about backing up your stuff and keeping copies on multiple media devices for safe keeping.
Picture Keeper is the world’s first all-in-one USB device with embedded software to protect pictures and other irreplaceable files
Picture Keeper is very simple to use and works on multiple platforms (PC & MAC). You simply plug the Picture keeper into a USB port on your computer or laptop, open the Program and start the back up. The Picture Keeper automatically finds and copies all your photos with its unique built in software. Backing up photos has never been so easy!
I was very impressed with how quickly and efficiently the Picture Keeper worked. I love that I can hook this Picture Keeper up to any device and download pictures and important documents without having to install a software program every time. I, also, love the smart technology of the Picture Keeper where it able to distinguish between photos that it has already backed up and ones that it needs to add.
The Picture Keeper comes in 4 different sizes. PK-4, PK-8, PK-16, and PK PRO. I was sent the PK-4 for review and loved how quick and easy it was to use. Within minutes, my photos were safely backed up on Picture Keeper and I could easily store in my safe. If you fill up one Picture Keeper, simpily purchase a second one and the new Picture Keeper will continue where the first one ended! If you are like me, you have a ton of photos that need to be saved!!
