Like most serious photographers, you probably spend a lot of time perfecting your images in post-production editing. That’s why it’s important you employ a method of backing up your precious processed files. In this free video, world-renowned outdoor photographer Ian Plant shows you his own methods for image backup. He stores his processed image files on his computer hard drive, but also backs them up with an external storage drive. To ensure further security, he also uses BackBlaze, a remote cloud-based backup system that stores his files on the internet. For further security, Ian backs up all the RAW files he’s captured in the field on a RAID external drive.

For long field trips, he also suggests carrying a small portable drive. The overall goal is to always have a reliable backup system for your valuable photographs.
