I want to back up all of my content from iphoto in three ways:  external drive, several flash drives and online.  The first two options are easy and done, but I'm having trouble finding an online solution that will incorpoate "faces" that I've painstakingly updated, can easily be organized, and seamlessly uploads from my Mac.


Flickr seems to keep dropping photos from each download.  Photobucket limits the number of folders available (I would need at least 30 for what I have now - anticipating 2-3 additions per year moving forward).  Picassa was complicated to upload and then has been duplicating all the photos onto my hard drive, thereby eating up the few GBs I have left to operate.   Too bad because I loved Picassa on my PC ages ago.


Any suggestions out there?  I don't mind paying for it - I just mind if it's not a reasonable solution.  I have iphoto '11 (9.4.1) and a MacBook Pro that recently upgraded to OS X so that I could use icloud.

    I know of no online solution that will incorporate iPhoto's faces feature.


    For online back up I use SmugMug and they have a dedicated iPhoto uploader - MacDaddy

    Get another EHD and do a daily clone and also get a portable HD and do a periotic clone to it and keep off site - car, sister or brother, parents, friend, etc
