Is there a good Cloud application or something that you trust to store all your baby pictures? I have mine on a thumbdrive, but it'd be nice to have some back up.....

Mostly Flickr (I pay for a pro account), and I just started auto-uploading all my phone pics to a private folder on google+.

Flickr, a pro account.

Also my laptop's hard drive and the drive that backs it up, although the backup drive is significantly less reliable than my actual drive for some reason.

i paid for a google storage thingy on picasa.
i have so many photos on my laptop and we have a backup network drive but my laptop is an Apple and after awhile it got angry and decided it would no longer backup to the non-Apple network drive.

i pay $4.99 a month for a buttload of space with google. i have YEARS worth of high res photos on picasa and there is also something called google drive where you can store files so i have been uploading my mp3s that arent from a physical cd and will also upload any like documents i have.

at least with google i know it's not going to go out of business anytime soon.

Thanks everyone!

And does anyone know how to download video from FB? My friend uploaded supercute video of L and I can't get a copy off. And I did google but their solutions didn't work....

We use Google drive and are probably going to pay for it when we run out of free space.

Is this a real question? Facebook's photo management stuff is awful.

They try very hard not to allow it.

You will probably have to use a firefox extension or something. I have one that works for ganking flash video from other sites, but it's at home and I don't remember what it was.

Here, this one claims to work with facebook:

It was a joke, man. Although, to be honest, since I basically only take pictures with my cell phone, Facebook does wind up being the most common end destination! (My pictures also back themselves up on Google+ from my phone.) Someday I might take worthwhile pictures and care, but don't have it together enough for that at this point.

I use CrashPlan (www.crashplan.com) to automagically back everything up, including my photos. they have a mobile app to view things on your iDevice if you want to grab a picture/document/whatever, and it's pretty affordable (I use the family plan for all of my computarz)
