Keeping Your Memories Safe With Picture Keeper

0 Flares 0 Flares ×

I became an avid picture taker once my daughter was born.  Wanting to capture every minute, I invested in a better point and shoot camera (I think my first P&S was a hand-me-down) and began snapping away.  It was so easy to take pictures and upload them to my computer.  So easy that now I have over 2000 photographs that only exist in one place.  On my PC.  That doesn’t include the 200 or so on my laptop or the photos my husband has on his laptop.  Wanting a simple solution that would keep all those memories safe, I was introduced to Picture Keeper.

Picture Keeper is a quick and easy way to backup all of your photographs.  All you have to do is insert the USB drive and follow the on-screen prompts.  There isn’t any software to install, no cords to mess with and the great thing is it’s compatible with PC and Mac.  The compatibility feature is great for me since my desktop is a PC and my laptop is a Mac and different pictures are stored on each device.  With the Picture Keeper I can consolidate them in one place and always have access to my photos.  What I also like is that if I’m at Walgreens and decide to print off some pictures, I can easily do so using the files on my Picture Keeper.  All I have to do is insert the USB and choose which ones I want.  Because Picture Keeper follows the same filing system you have on your computer, pictures are easy to find.  This gives me additional piece of mind to know that all the memories I’ve captured over the years are secure.  My wedding, my daughter’s first birthday and holidays spent with family are safe with Picture Keeper.

The Picture Keeper comes in a variety of different sizes.  I’m not a technical techy person and GB, MB, KB, etc. are all Greek to me.  The chart below gives you an idea of which product you’ll need, based on the number of photographs you have and the size of the files.

If all that’s Greek to you as well, on the Picture Keeper’s website they have a tool that will estimate the size of Picture Keeper that you need.

Before you use your Picture Keeper, there are a few steps you should do.  Remember, Picture Keeper copies your files just as you have them.  So if you have duplicate files on your computer, don’t like your file architecture, etc. then you need to do some cleanup.

  1. Delete duplicate files.  I had several duplicate pictures and didn’t even realize it.  I must have uploaded photos and then not deleted them from my camera.
  2. Delete unwanted photographs.  When my daughter was younger, I had to take 10-15 pictures in a row in hopes of capturing a smile.  I’ve kept every single one of those pictures over the years.
  3. Rename your files.  If you don’t like your current filing system, take the time to rename them so it’s easy to find the pictures you’re searching for.
To use Picture Keeper (for PC) just insert the device into a USB port and when the AutoPlay window will appear.  Double click to open the program and click on “start backup.”  It’s that simple.

From this screen you can also set up reminders and view your pictures.  Have more questions about Picture Finder?  Check out their FAQ section.

  1. I want this…it sounds fabulous! I’m always looking for more ways to save my digital photos. It’s a bit obnoxious how I do it now, but I’d be oh so sad if I lost all of my photos!

  2. This looks so cool!  I’ve been needing to find something like this because I would be devastated if I lost all my pics!

  3. I have 1000’s of pictures and I wanted to buy all sorts of Cd’s to burn them on but I like this idea a lot more! I am going to have to buy this! I LOVE this!! 

  4. What a great way to organize and keep your pictures.  I definitely want to try this out!

  5. anything to keep my pics safe!

  6. cute idea, my mother in law takes a ton of pics she would like this

  7. Love the idea  – I have tons of pictures all over the place in the house and computer just asking for trouble

  8. Lisa Weidknecht says:

    I need this. I’m so bad about photo organization!

  9. Ronald O. says:

    This is pretty neat! I’m going to tell my wife about it. She has tons of photographs and this would certainly help her out. Thanks! 🙂

  10. This is something I could definitely use. I have most of my photos moved to an external hard drive but I haven’t moved any of my 2012 photos yet! I think about it all of the time but just cannot bring myself to work on it! I think I could definitely benefit from Picture Keeper!

  11. Keri Ritenour says:

    Yep, just what I need. I cannot tell you how many times, I have had my computer completely crash and lost photos with great sentimental value.

  12. Jennifer Mae Hiles says:

    I would love to have one of these. I have so many photos on CD’s and I’m afraid they are going to get scratched. I also like that it allows you to easily rename photos. It is not a simple task with other programs.

  13. This would make storing pictures convenient.

  14. Picture Keeper sounds like a great way to keep important photos safe and accessible 🙂

  15. Gina F. says:

    I would love this. I have so many pictures on my computer.

  16. Stephanie Hungerford says:

    I love the varying compacity for those with different needs for picture back up, I love that it can process and delete duplicates and pictures that are the same. I when to the site and was sad to find out that this product doesn’t work on a Lenix OS computer so I can not use it but for the average computer user this is the perfect back up device

  17. I have so many pictures this would be great for me!

  18. Jean whitaker says:

    with 1 grandkids and 13 = great gran kids -could really use this

  19. we have so many pictures and even more since our grandchild was born this would be perfect!

  20. Donna George says:

    I lost many pics of my kids when my hard drive burned up. Wish I had this then.

  21. Ruth Hill says:

    Have a large german family and mom still puts our family photos in a shoe box. This would be better.

  22. I am just now getting into digital photography so this would be great!

  23. This is just what we need to keep our precious pictures safe. I’m so telling hubby about it. 🙂

  24. wendy g says:

    i have lots of pics this would be great

  25. Jill A. Collins says:

    This would be such a problem solver for me. I have digital photos everywhere – on discs, sd cards, computers – I’d love to have them stored in all one place!

  26. Tami Valentine says:

    being a scrapbooker, I have 1000s of pictures, but I don’t know really how to store them. I used to think that once I had them developed, I wouldn’t need them anymore….I got rid of so many! It wasn’t until my kids started taking technology classes in school…they’d come home and say they’d need a picture of them as babies, kindergarten, etc. They’d say, “my teacher said to e-mail it to her or we can put it in dropbox”. Dropbox? isn’t that the little opening in the door where mail would be slid? I had to send copies in with my kids. I really need to get into the 21st century technology!


  28. Meghan Finley says:

    Sounds like a lifesaver. I keep meaning to organize and find a place for all my photos

  29. With the amount of photos my daughter & I take, we could definitely use this!

  30. Vesta Mason says:

    This is SO great!!! Now you don’t have to worry about losing all your pictures!

  32. Seyma Shabbir says:

    I have so many duplicate photos it is ridiculous. I tried to name them in such a way to organize but we have so many!

  33. Sarah L says:

I’m so glad there’s a product that will hold and sort all my families pictures, no matter which device they were taken on! Thank you for sharing!

  59. Deborah Hogue says:

    I wish I knew about this before my pc crashed. Now I have no way to get the information off of my pc short of paying hundreds of dollars for repair costs. This definitely sounds like a good investment for me to have

  60. Shelbie Johnston says:

    How cool is this! I’d finally have a way to organize and store all my pictures!
