Photos and videos are inevitable part of some people’s lives, though not for others! Photographs inform, thrill, amaze and entertain if presented in the right manner. Many people have photography as their hobby and a few as a career. It’s really challenging to have photography as one’s profession, as this has great commercial value and scope. The opportunities as a photographer is much more than you might have thought of - photo journalism, fashion photography, wildlife photography, forensic photography, scientific photography, industrial photography are few in the top list.
It’s really challenging to capture the right stills at the right time, as no photograph can be recaptured at any cost! So the effort in producing great photographs is simply inevitable. For example, a press photographer covering a major disaster such as a plane crash, a burning ship or some other accident, may have captured rare stills that are not available anywhere. That’s when he cannot lose his precious piece of work that may cost huge dollars in the press market. These photographs need to be protected using a proper storage strategy, preferably a cloud solution as they are economical and scalable.
IDrive’s cloud solution makes data protection simpler, quicker and much efficient than its competitors.

Social Media Data Protection
All your photos whether professional or personal, they get mostly showcased through social media such as Facebook and Instagram for publicity and sharing among your friends. Similarly, you could also be tagged in some of the photos that belong to them. So safeguarding your social media files are as important as safeguarding your local files. Facebook has inbuilt feature to download photos and videos, but doesn’t have option to protect the ones you are tagged in. What if a friend unfriends you, untags you, or deletes their account? Those tagged photos and videos will be lost forever. That’s why you need them backed up to your cloud account to stay away from the fear of losing.
IDrive’s social media protection helps you to safeguard your photos and videos from Facebook and Instagram by sending them to our secure cloud storage, for availability in case of data disasters.
Mobile Data Protection
IDrive allows you to store your contacts, photos, videos, calendar events on iOS, along with SMS, call logs and apps, from your Android, iOS and Windows phone device to your cloud account.
