Want to back up pics
 
I have a photobucket acct but I want to back up all my pics & vids.Is there something that I can get to do this?

A few months back when I was saving all of my pics off of photobucket because they changed their site into a steaming pile of **** there was a "backup all pictures" type function. It was greyed out though and had like a "coming soon" message when you tried to use it. Maybe they have that working now. I just went 1 by 1 and saved every pic...

You can right click on each pic, save it to a location (use the "Save Image As" option) on your computer and burn them all to a disc after you have them saved.

Is this the same if I have a Mac? also where would I burn them to? I thought a type of storage box thingy (???) would be easier.Maybe I could do them all instead one by one? Yeah,Im computer illiterate

You should be able to transfer files straight to a thumb drive

dropbox.

you get a folder on your computer specifically for your files. link it to your phone and any picture you take goes directly into the folder. then select al and burn to CD or whatever you want to do.

it basically gives you a folder that exists on both your phone, PC, ipad, etc. and you can even access it through a browser like photobucket.

There are several "cloud" storage sites. Meaning you can save everything off site on a secure server.
I do that as triple protection in case anything ever happened to my house and I lost everything.
We (wife and I) have our PC, laptop, and two smartphones update daily to Just Cloud. We can then access any of the files from any computer, tablet or phone anywhere we are. Also, they store all files, not just pictures.
There is an annual cost but we have just too many family pics to risk ever losing.
Do a Google search for online storage and see if it's something you are looking for.
