Hi, I'm Jack. I created My Smartphone Tutor to make it easy for you to learn and love your Android smartphone.
I'm a geek. I love technology but when it comes to my photos, I've made some monumental mistakes over the years.
Back in 2003 my wife and I went on a cruise through the Western Caribbean. 2003 is like prehistoric times for digital photography. This is 4 years before the first iPhone, the first Android smartphone another year after that.
So, armed with my brand new HP Digital Camera. Lots of batteries and a plethora of storage cards - we sailed away from the shores of Florida.
Over the next 7 days we took hundreds of pictures, visiting places I had only ever dreamed of seeing. Selfies with unimaginably crystal clear blue water in the background. Shots of dolphins playfully swimming in the wake.
Rustic Aztec ruins that made you feel like you were on the set of an Indian Jones movie. Sting rays gliding along the ocean floor and Jamaican locals trying to sell you anything and everything. We captured it all with that camera.
This was a dream vacation.
Digital Photographs Were Made To Be Shared! We love to share photographs and digital photos make sharing incredibly easy. You must protect your digital photos just like you would physical photos. With only one copy of a photo, its officially on the endangered list.
Roughly a year later we were in San Francisco together. HP digital camera in tow, we saw all the beautiful sites of San Francisco.
We got pictures of the magnificent Golden Gate bridge, photographed the historic beauty of the Painted Ladies. We took pictures in front of the rows of brightly colored tulips planted below the Dutch Windmill at Queen Wilhelmina Tulip Garden.
We toured Alcatraz island on a day when the sky was just as as cold and gray as the prison walls before warming up with every imaginable variety of clam chowder on Fisherman's Wharf.
Hundreds of pictures documented our trip around the beautiful sites of that city.
Normally, this is where I would give you a link to see some of those photos. Or include a few on this page to show off my "photography skills" - wink wink.
See, I had this idea that I could save myself a few bucks if I backed up the photos myself. I copied all those photos to my PC. It was fun at first. Seeing all the photos from our trips.
But, it wasn't long before I loathed sitting down to backup our photos. And so there would be long periods where I just wouldn't do it. It was so easy to come up with something, anything, to do instead of going through that grueling process.
Have you heard of the idea of having a backup of your backup? In technology industry, this concept is damn near gospel. Have a backup of your backup to ensure you never lose your photos.
I sat down at my PC and the screen was blank. Hmmm... that's weird. Turn it off and turn it back on. Nothing. Ummm... OoooK... Slowly it dawned on me. I didn't want to believe it at first
Complete. Hard drive. Failure.
F-word! F-word! F-word!!!
You know of the endangered species list, but I bet you didn't realize your photos are endangered. With only one copy of your most precious photos, it takes a simple mistake and in an instant all your photos are gone forever.
Just like my hard drive, your phone is at risk. The hard drive could fail. Your SD card could corrupt. You might lose your phone.
You will most definitely drop it. It could get ran over by a lawn mower. No joke, ran over by the lawn mower.
According to Square Trade a Tech Insurance company; American’s have spent $13 Billion dollars on damaged smartphones.
$13 billion! Are you kidding me right now.
Despite all of those potential disasters. You're most likely to lose your photos through one of these 2 scenarios:
An app on your phone is updated overnight. You don't even realize it. All you know is that your phone is acting really weird. You put up with it for a couple of days. You might even try and research it online. Eventually, frustrated you take it to the store to have a technician look at it. They always say the same thing. "You have to do a factory reset."
A factory reset erases ALL the personal data on your phone. The technicians don't have the time or expertise to go through everything you have on your phone. They can't sift through the hundreds of apps to figure out the cause. The quickest solution for them is to return your phone to the way it was when you first bought it.And there goes all of your photos.
You Can Do Everything Right And Still Lose Your Photos - An bad app update could cause your phone to be unusable. So even if you never drop, run over, or lose your phone. You could still lose all your photos.
Dinged and scratched and dulled, you take your phone, the one that's been with you day-in and day-out for the last 2 years into the store. Time for an upgrade! Woo Hoo.
You look at the big bright screens. The camera is faster than ever. Each picture has about a billion more megapixels than you current phone. You finally find the ONE.
What happens to all the photos on your existing phone? The sales person isn't going to copy them all over for you. How will you get all those memories off your old phone. Where will you put them? How will you get to them so you can reminisce and share?
A good backup system should protect your photos by ensuring you have more than a single copy, give you more room on your phone, be incredibly easy to use, and should store all your photos.
It must be simple. You take a photo and it's backed up.
Redundancy. A backup of your backup. A copy of your photos must be stored somewhere else.
Volume. How much storage capacity do you have? You must be able to store ALL your photos.
After losing all our photos, there had to be a better solution. One that was incredibly easy to use but wouldn't cost a couple of hundred dollars a year.
It turns out that a number of companies offer easy to use photo backup solutions: but if you're not careful you could end up spending a lot of money each year to use them. The cost is what keeps most people away. Fortunately, I found a couple of ways to mitigate or completely erase the monthly fee associated with backing up photos.
I was shocked to discover that some of the companies out there even offer FREE UNLIMITED photo and video storage. And all of them have Internet Access and Apps so you can access your photos from any internet connected device even non Android devices like iPads or Windows Surface tablets.
A quick recap shows:
Everything I wanted to protect our photos was available, so why had I made it so hard?
After looking through all the available backup services out there, I realized there's no "One size fits all solution". That's why I installed and worked with all of them so I could show you the exact steps to make it incredibly easy on you.
Not only can it be confusing to setup and configure a service like backing up your photos. But if you don't know which settings to use; it could be extremely expensive. That's why with Backup & Protect Your Smartphone Photos, you get:

I love helping people use their smartphones. Its fun and rewarding to see how much more people enjoy them once they learn a few fundamentals.
Everyone loves using their smartphone's camera. Its one of the most used features and I don't want anyone to lose their photos because they're not sure how to set up a backup system or their afraid of the cost.
Backup and Protect Your Smartphone Photos will ensure you learn to use another aspect of your smartphone and remove the frustration around protecting your photos.
You might be thinking you could find a tutorial for setting up your backup system somewhere else. Its true, there is free information everywhere. But how long will it take you to find a good tutorial? How long will it take you to find the answers when you have questions?
One thing I pride myself on at My Smartphone Tutor is creating the most complete and easy to follow tutorials available.
Backup & Protect Your Smartphone photos is designed with the smartphone novice in mind. So no matter how comfortable you are with your smartphone; you'll will be successful in setting up your automatic backup.
When I was researching Backup Solutions no one mentioned being careful with how you delete your photos. I accidentally deleted a couple of backups because I wasn't aware how to do it. You benefit from all that experience and testing.
Maybe you've never lost or broken your phone. But you can't control a bad App or OS update that renders your phone unusable. When that happens, usually the only solution is a factory reset. A factory reset will delete all your photos.
No one intentionally breaks their phone. In one instant it can fall out of your pocket when you sit down (that happened to me), dropped in the toilet (happens all the time - but not by me :D), ran over, lost or stolen. Then all of your photos are gone.
You wouldn't believe all the emails I get saying, "I'm not sure what happened but all my photos are gone. PLEASE HELP!" At that point, there's nothing I can do. Once they're gone, they're gone.
Remember your photos truly are on the endangered list and it only take one unfortunate incident to wipe them out completely.
If you're anything like me, then your phone is with you nearly every second of the day. That means its exposed to hazards all the time.
A good case will protect your phone from being dropped but it will not protect it from a failed hard drive or a corrupted SD card or just running out of space.
Taking photos with your smartphone is a true joy. Even toddlers know that they're supposed to come and see the photo right after its taken. That's because photos are a part of who we are. They remind us of so many fun and joyous times in our lives. Here are a few reasons you should consider creating an automatic backup system for the photos on your phone.
