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.
The free account of TroveBox lets you do all the above along with letting you create the image backup on your DropBox, Box.com, or Amazon S3 account. The free account also has a limit of 100 photos per month. The Pro account costs $29.99 per month and it adds a bunch of extra features include image importing support for Flickr and, soon to be added, Picasa and Smugmug.
