This weekend I started making a second backup all of my picture archives just in case the HDD on my NAS decided to crap out. My NAS ( FreeNas) is not set up in a Raid-5 configuration so a hard drive failure could be pretty disappointing. So where do I backup to? I got to thinking that my entire Music collection is backed up to the Google music service. Pretty sweet service if you haven't checked it out. Google will let you upload up to 20K songs for free to always have available through their music app. No fee's or paying subscriptions required. Anyways, this got me thinking about doing the same with all my photos. Pictures and video's that I have saved over the past 15 to 20 years.... way before g+ and its auto backup. I have the 15GB of Google drive that I was only using about 30% so far. Not to mention the 15GB that my wife has available under her account and the 15GB that my Newborn son has under his account. Yes, I created him an account and one day i'll give him the password assuming Google will still be a thing in the next 15 years. So that was my Sunday, backing up photos and videos. Then the weird stuff - good stuff started happening. I started getting notifications from Google+ that new "Auto Awesome" photos and Video books were being added. By uploading all these to my drive, Google+/ Google photos decided to play along and create some magic from all my old photos. I'm sharing some pictures below that I thought were cool. The interesting thing is that some of these photos were taken with a plain ole digital camera years ago and Google stitched multiple pictures together to create one nice panoramic shot. I even got a "Hoff" photo-bomb! After completing the task and seeing all the cool auto awesome stuff I gained, its extremely nice to have all my photos and videos in one place I can access from my mobile or PC anytime. Now, if I can get some of my friends and relatives to starting using Drive, I can set up a share so they can download pictures from years ago.
