Backing up your files

Backing up your files is important and I have just started backing up all my RAW files to the cloud after much research I found crashplan to be the best for myself and maybe other photographer may find them the best choice too.They offer unlimited space.Can upload from external hard drives and the file will not be deleted if you disconnect the drive from your computer, some backup sites only keep the files for 30 days unless you reconnected the drive.

I hope you enjoy and thanks for looking... continue reading

I always check the box to let go the picture to the free license galery if the picture is not qualified for the RF one. But I don't know why none of the rejected picture are accepted until today.The difference is today I let a note in the editor text area to state that I am agree to let it go free if it is not selected.And it is done for my clouds ;) which is not an exceptional one ... it is a kind of test. continue reading
