    Any backup company will do the trick. Just make sure you don't enable sharing options. Here is a guide I wrote that should help http://onlinebackupsearch.com/backup-basics/5-tips-for-protecting-digital-photos.html

    Microsoft's Skydrive gave me 25GB of free storage. I've been using it for years now.

    Well : I found that dropbox (www.dropbox.com) is free, simple to use, and offers free 2gb storage space. One can obtain further free storage space by introducing new members or one can also subscribe to get even more storage space.

    I will recommend you DropBox for private photo backup and any other online storage. DropBox is the best option. It provides real time sharing and most reliability of your online data. Along with free GB storage and excellent features including Drag-and-Drop Upload,Automated photo backup and others. Also SugarSync and JustCloud can be a better option for photo backup.

    All the suggested options are good.

    You just need to think how you want to put your pictures in it.

    Only from PC? Or from a Mac?
    Or also from your phone?
    Will you Never have to share a picture?
    From what devices do you want to see the pictures?

    Those are questions that can help you make a good decision of what service to use.

    IMO - Skydrive if you have an older account (the 25GB one), it's the best :D

    Dropbox \m/
    You can even sync it directly to your phone to upload recently clicked pics automatically!
    Also unless you share, all files will be private!

      And you can use BoxCrypt if you're unsure of its security!

    I would recommend Dropbox and Google Drive.

    If the backup is very important, I would suggest you to keep the backup in more than one cloud service.Just to be on a safer side.

      Mediafire is more suited for sharing, I think, but I seconded Dropbox.

    I'd use Dropbox with BoxCrypt. By doing that, even if they were compromized the encryption would still need to be broken in order to even view them while they are automatically decrypted for you in your mapped BoxCryptor drive so there is no additional work required on your end to use the images.
