The holidays are a great time for making family memories and capturing precious moments. I love using my Nikon DSLR Camera and my Android smartphone to take photos and create videos of my family. My camera allows me to capture higher quality photos and my phone is great for spontaneous snapshots especially on the go. I take lots of photos of my kids so it’s equally as important to me to have a way to protect my photos from accidental deletion. Picture Keeper Connect offers a simple way of backing up family photos from a phone and transferring photo files to a tablet or computer!
No technology is fool proof. Even if I have a nice camera, relatively new smart phone, multiple SD memory cards and a reliable laptop computer, photos can still be deleted and go missing. On my phone, deleting a photo is as easy as swiping the wrong direction. My kids love playing with my phone and looking at my photos and it would be super easy for them to accidentally delete an irreplaceable photo.. (Just try successfully posing your child the same way again; not going to happen.) Picture Keeper Connect connects to your phone using a micro USB plug so you can quickly and regularly download and backup your photos. This photo backup device is also helpful for moving files to a tablet or computer when you want to edit your photos or share them from your PC. The Picture Keeper Connect I received for review holds 16GB of files (also available in 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB) so I can keep all my best shots saved in a second secure location.
Back Up Photos Lightning Fast
To use Picture Keeper Connect, simply download the Connect App, connect the micro USB connector to your phone and start backing up photos from your mobile device. The Android Connect cable and app are compatible with the standard USB Type-A port used by most Android smartphones manufactured by Samsung, HTC, LG, and Motorola. You can check the OTG Compatibility list to determine if your mobile device will work with the Picture Keeper Connect app. If you have a newer Android device with a USB Type-C port, you will need the Keeper Converter instead of the Android Connect cable. This was the case for my newer Android 7.1.1 phone. Once everything is connected you can conveniently backup and restore photos stored on Android devices, transfer them to your computer, or just store your photo files on the Picture Keeper Connect.
I recently heard a story that would be a wedding photographer’s nightmare; a lady shot several weddings and later discovered that her external hard drive where she stored her photos became corrupted. Her efforts to restore the files through a professional file restoration service only recovered a percentage of the photos. Talk about heartache over lost images! Anyone would feel so bad to lose precious photos. With Picture Keeper Connect, you can easily back up your mobile photos during a wedding or special event to avoid losing priceless images.

Another cool feature — if you run out of room on one Picture Keeper Connect drive, you can just plug in another drive and the app seamlessly picks up where the last drive left off.
