For most travelers, photos are the key to revisiting experiences or relating them to friends at home. Unfortunately, travelers can be especially prone to running out of storage space, leaving them unable to capture those valuable memories. Cloud backups can offer some relief, but they can be technically tricky and usually require a monthly fee.

Consequently, I am always searching for simple, non-technical ways to save photos from my phone or my computer. Enter Picture Keeper, a flash drive designed for smartphones, tablets, and computers and available in various memory configurations from 16 to 500 gigabytes.

When I first got this device, I wondered if it was really as easy to use as it seemed. I simply plugged it in and clicked “start backup.” I am happy to say it was effortless, and it quickly and automatically searched through my phone for the photos, backing up 737 photos in under five minutes. Voilà! — RS
