Recently I signed up for Dropbox.com and I found it useful since I found a way to save and since saved photo’s off of my iPad. Then after doing that I found through the Apple discussion forums I found out that I could have use iPhoto that came with my Mac Laptop. It was a “discovery” or a “ah-ha” moment on my part that “should have” made about a year ago.

It’s when I have these “ah-ha” moments that I feel behind the time’s or I could have looked up on the web sooner but didn’t.

By using Dropbox, I found a work around to get pictures that I took on to my iPad. Even though I could sync picture’s with Aperture through iTunes and every time I do that I keep getting an error message about needing to delete pictures from my iPad. I have used the Photo Stream (from of iCloud) and have some saved photos already on my iPad, still iTunes wants to delete pictures that have been synced with iCloud. So, in the end I found a way to get pictures on to my iPad without the possibility deleting any pictures on the iPad.

Though I signed up at a time that I’m unable to pay for the monthly fee for Dropbox. I’ve been looking to use the Amazon Cloud Drive and use that for the rest of my photos since I would be able to pay (I like to pay on a yearly basis) for the size I need. I know I could use blank DVDs to back up my pictures, along with some stuff from my computer.

In the end I might just end up using both services (Dropbox and Amazon Cloud Drive), one as a free service and the later one as a paid service at some point.

Though at this point I’m rambling on to much with this topic.

later.
