Snapjoy: A brilliant way to organize and protect your photos. (No more excuses!)

Store your photos in the cloud with SnapjoyFor all the spouting off I do about organizing your digital photographs, backing them up and filing them neatly away, I have a confession: My iPhoto is a bogged-down, disorganized mess of a thing. For all that “delete! delete! delete!” preaching I do, I should take some of my own advice more often. Now when I open the program it yawns its way to my thousands of uncategorized photos from the past few years.

So when I discovered this brand new online cloud storage for digital photographs, I vowed then and there that this would be my kick in the pants to get my photos organized, cleaned up and most importantly, backed up. 


Snapjoy
is a simple way to back up your photos so that they are safe and
organized in their online “cloud” storage. Simply upload your
photos to their site, and they are protected no matter what happens to your
computer.

Unlike many other online storage
systems out there, I love the fact that Snapjoy was created solely for
digital photographs. They have created a system that uses the metadata
stored in each of your pictures to organize your photos by when and
where they were taken. And once they are uploaded onto Snapjoy, they are
automatically presented in a beautiful chronological system that is
easy to navigate.

are uploaded in their full-resolution–no automatic
downsizing–something many photo storage sites do without
explicitly telling you.

And all your photos are private by default. I
love that peace of mind; I’ll decide when, where and with whom to share those
photos of my kids, thankyouverymuch.

And above all,
you can rest easy knowing that your photos are protected and preserved
if anything were to ever happen to your computer. Snapjoy even promises
to protect on their end as well. They back up copies of your photos
across multiple data centers. 


Snapjoy is in
beta now, so snatch yourself up an account while it is still free. Once
beta testing and tweaking is finished, every user will get a free amount
of “photo cloud” space, with the option to purchase upgrades for a
small monthly fee. And if you’re a Mac user, a seamless uploading
program is available to make the whole thing that much easier. 


So
no more excuses. New Year’s organizational resolutions may have faded,
but now you’ve got a new good excuse to get those photos organized and
protected. -Molly

    question. i love this idea but wasn’t too sure on one point. so let’s say, i signed up for an account and choose to upload 105 gb of photos while they’re in beta. once the program is no longer in beta, does that mean I’ll have to pay for the $10/month plan OR since I uploaded them while it was in beta do I not have to worry about the pricing plan since I uploaded the pictures during the beta phase?
    In other words, do I get grandfathered in or do I have to pay for whatever I end up using?
    THANKS!

    Great post and I’m really excited about this new company, I might blog about them as well! I recently had a HUGE tragedy and lost about 15,000 photos that weren’t backed up. Nightmare!! Thankfully for the new cloud and companies like this, that won’t happen to people in the future. Years of precious memories and the security they are there forever are definitely worth the cost of a few $$’s per month!
