Saving and Sharing Your Photos

Using Cox Secure Online Backup

Saving and sharing your photos

There is probably no greater excitement in life, no fuller sense of anticipation than that felt by the parents of a new baby. Well, except maybe for the anticipation felt by the rest of the family, which is evident by their demands to see pictures of the little darling… NOW! It’s time to put your video camera in action and start posting pics and videos from the newborn nursery.

These days, sharing special moments in your life is incredibly easy thanks to digital cameras and social networking. Instead of thumbing through a dusty photo album or watching a slide show in the dark, you can quickly post your latest pics online and easily share them with family and friends.

Cox Secure Online Backup

One thing that hasn’t changed over the years, though, is the emotional value people invest in their pictures. Cox Secure Online Backup, our online storage service, is an excellent way to protect your memories and have them readily available to share. Now, you can keep all your favorite pictures in one easy-to-access space, and then back them up in a safe location outside of your home computer system. That means your photos are protected against any computer crashes, scratched disks, fire, theft or any other threats to your PC’s hard drive.

Gigs of Storage Space

Cox Secure Online Backup provides anywhere from 1 GB (for our Starter and Essential subscribers) to UNLIMITED storage space (for Ultimate customers), which you can use for pictures, videos, favorite music or other important documents and files. Preferred susbscribers can store 5 GB of files, while Premier subscribers get 50 GB. Best of all, it's all free-of-charge!

How much is 50 GB of space, you ask? A lot! According to a Top Ten Review article, 50 GB is the equivalent of one of the following: 

  • 14,000 photos
  • 200 hours of video
  • 12,000 songs
  • 250,000 Word Documents
  • 50,000 PowerPoint Presentations
  • 400,000 spreadsheets

As you can see, that’s an incredible amount of space for keeping and protecting what’s important in your life.

What You Can Do

First and foremost, you can quickly and easily upload pictures anywhere you have access to the Internet. Cox Secure Online Backup also offers a number of simple tools for creating file folders, albums, libraries and slideshows – all to help you archive your pics and create presentation formats that can easily be shared.
