Safe Snaps photo archive service |
Founders Rod Harrison and Phil Kaye, bring a combined 35 years of experience and expertise in the technology sector to the new venture. The company formally incorporated in January 2005, with the service making its debut in August. Safe Snaps differentiates itself from other photo storage services in several ways. First, the company charges a flat fee of $7.50 for an unlimited amount of storage. Next, they store, and allow retrieval of, the full-resolution image. Safesnaps will never delete a customer’s pictures. There are no limits on the number of photos and the price is always the same.
Safe Snap PhotoElephant software
Safe Snaps’ custom-designed PhotoElephant software will automatically save your digital images over the Internet whenever you upload from your camera. No more burning CDs or choosing select files to copy. “You can forget because PhotoElephant never will,” Harrison said. “We store every version of the file you make, so changes get saved as well as the original,” Harrison explained. “The backup is automatic, it can run hourly, daily, weekly, monthly, as well as on demand. That means you can't forget to back up, which is a very common cause of lost files.”
