How to back up photos when travelingWhether you shoot on a phone or a traditional camera, these backup tips will help keep precious photos safe and sound when on vacation.
[BLANK_AUDIO] Got a minute? Here are some ways to back up precious photo memories when traveling. Remember, the point of any backup is to have multiple copies of your photos in different locations. Set up automatic cloud backups for phone photos. Apps like Google Photos, Dropbox, and even Facebook's Moments app, let you sync images to their servers when you're on wi-fi. Just turn on this option in the settings. For traditional cameras, consider taking a laptop and possibly an external hard drive. Transfer images to a Mac or PC, create duplicates on the hard drive, and as a third layer, use Google Photos to sync images to the Cloud. Backup to a phone or tablet if you're without internet access. Some cameras have built in Wi-Fi to make this easy. If not, Apple has a lightning to USB adapter for iPhone and iPad. Plug it in, and connect your camera to the other end. Android users can try an OTG, or on the go, cable. In San Francisco, I'm Lexy Savvides, CNET.com, for CBS News.
