Picture Keeper Backup Devices
Backing up your photos has never been easier! Simply plug the Picture Keeper USB Backup Device into your PC or Mac, and it automatically locates and copies all of your photos. It even keeps track of what has already been stored, so only new or modified files are copied.
Multiple backups are always a good idea, particularly when one backup is stored offsite. With 2 Picture Keepers, you can rotate between them and have the peace of mind that comes with knowing your photo collection is safe.
Picture Keepers come in several sizes to accommodate various photo collections.
PK 16 – up to 16,000 photos* - $100.00 – free shipping
PK 32 – up to 32,000 photos* - $140.00 – free shipping
PK Pro – up to 250,000 photos* - $200.00 – free shipping
*Estimated capacity based on an average photo size of 1MB. Your camera type will affect your photo sizes.
Flip-Pal Mobile Scanner®
The Flip-Pal Mobile Scanner is a convenient portable option for scanning on the go. This lightweight battery-operated flatbed scanner operates at both 300 and 600 dpi and makes scanning loose photos, news clippings, photos in albums and even framed photos super simple. If you have large photos or posters, Flip-Pal’s unique EasyStitch software automatically reassembles individual scans into the original image. Best of all, you don’t need to be connected to a computer while scanning. Simply store the scanned images on the included SD card until you’re ready to transfer them to your computer.
Portable Hard Drive
Backing up your digital photos is essential to protect them. I like the slim design and ample 2TB capacity of the Seagate External Hard Drive. For even greater peace of mind, purchase two hard drives and keep one complete backup offsite. Rotate them periodically so each drive always contains the latest backups.
Cricut Tools Craft Spatula
If you have photos stuck in old adhesive or magnetic photo albums, the Cricut Tools Craft Spatula is a handy way to remove the photos for scanning and storage. Simply slide the spatula under a corner of the photo and gently guide it to lift and remove the photo. Be patient and careful to use only light pressure so as not to damage your precious photos.
White Cotton Gloves
Give your precious photos and mementos the white glove treatment – literally. Handling your delicate items with these white cotton gloves prevents the transfer of naturally occurring oils that can cause photos and memorabilia to deteriorate.
