The regular Internet user has their images stored on multiple websites. If any one of these websites were to experience a crash or downtime, the user’s valuable images might be lost. Here to offer a safe backup that ensures your pictures will never be lost is a web service called TroveBox.

TroveBox is a free to use web service that lets you easily create a backup of your images being stored online. You start by creating an account on the website and connecting your Instagram and Facebook services. Your images will then begin downloading onto TroveBox and you will be able to view the download progress. You can also directly upload images to your TroveBox account.

When the download / upload is complete, your profile will display all the image-related statistics such as number of photos, number of albums, number of tags, and the amount of data used. You can click on an image to view it properly. In this magnified view, image data that is shown also includes camera data and tags. The date of the upload and links to share and download the image are also displayed.

For smartphone owners, the service offers iOS and Android applications.

    Let me get this straight. Your solution for someone with images spread all over the Internet is to put them on ANOTHER site? Sounds very logical. NOT! How about consolidating the storage of ALL those images on a local hard drive? Then the user does not have to worry about Internet being down, sites going off-line, changing their storage policies, remembering which image is on what site. (S)he retains complete control over the images. All the user has to do is to backup their HD regularly.

      @dragonmouth As I understand it you can use your own storage service, like Dropbox. In that case your photos *would* be stored on your local drive and simply referred to by the web service. Sounds pretty cool to me. I'm checking it out now.
