This is kind of a Macbook and iPhone question, but since most of my usage is on my iphone and ipad, I seem to only be using the macbook for occassional use and storage, I thought it would be most helpful to post here... My iphone 4s has run out of space- mostly due to the photos being 8MP I think (iTunes says photos are definitely taking up the most room, along with "other" and I'm not quite sure what that is) My macbook is also running out of discspace So how do you back up your photos (on an iPad/iPhone/macbook)? I do not really want to pay for icloud service (but will if that is the best option). I have an external harddrive but I find it a PITA to actually find the time to sit down and sync my phone photos to my macbook (still running leopard so no icloud syncing there- which is ok at the moment since there wouldn't be room for it to sync anyways) and then hook up the external HD and back up the photos and other documents. Is there a more streamlined way to do this? Is there a different method of storage I should consider? I would love something more "automatic" but I'm not sure a time capsule is in my budget and I'm not sure I want to back up via timemachine... I want to be able to delete files (photos, music, etc) from my computer and phone and then pull them back up when I need them (I heard that is not how timemachine works) I know places like shutterfly offer online storage but I worry about the quality of a photo after its been uploaded to shutterfly and then downloaded again if I need it... plus, what if shutterfly goes out of business or something? Is there wireless external harddrives that I could access via my iphone and put photos in there?
