How to Back Up Your Social Media Video – 2021 guide

Earlier Google’s photo backup platform automatically uploaded all the photos saved in your Android or IOS device. These included photos and videos stored in folders created by apps like Facebook, WhatsApp, and Instagram.

Google, the world’s largest search engine, has said that it has now discontinued this feature, and now you have to save these photos yourself or turn to a specific app meant for this feature. Check out oDownloader to know more about this.

For this, Google has cited a surge in the tendency to share photographs after the onset of Covid-19. A statement in this regard said that due to Covid-19, people are sharing more photos and videos.

Google insisted that no photos that were already backed up and organized through social media apps have been affected by this change.

So to conserve Internet resources, backup and sync have been turned off for device folders created by messaging apps like WhatsApp, Messages, and Kik. In such a scenario, you can change this at any time in the settings.

Social media is an integral part of our daily lives. However, the information needs to be backed up regularly. There is a difference between storing data online and cloud storage. Very few online backup providers back up social media videos.

Tools to back up social media content:

Let us find out the tools that are used to back up the social media video.

The tools are as follows:

a) Idrive: This versatile online backup service provider backs up videos on Facebook and Instagram. It stores the copies of the videos on its cloud servers.

b) Acronis True Image: This tool backs up social media videos at a faster speed than Idrive. This speed is possible because they have a faster network backup. It backs up videos from Facebook and Instagram in a comprehensive manner.

The users do not need to back up the videos manually on this platform. The backup is automatic. If social media gets deleted, then it restores the backed-up data to a new profile. The users need to set up Acronis Backup cloud which encrypts the data with 256-bit AES. It provides the best online backup through an Android or Ios device. It doesn’t offer any free plans. The minimum cost is reasonable.

c) Cloudsfer Social media backup: It allows people to perform scheduled and manual file transfers.

d) pCloud: It is the best Dropbox alternative available in the market. This cloud storage service backs up videos from social media. It may only save videos from Facebook and Instagram.

How to best utilize Instagram for your business

Instagram has over 800 million monthly active users, much less competition but a lot more engaged audience than other social media giants like Twitter or Facebook. This presents businesses with the chance to market their products or services to a more interested and targeted audience without spending a crazy amount of money on paid advertising. As of Januar 2019, Instagram’s API has changed to allow IG users to publish videos or photos to an Instagram Business Profile using third-party platforms like Sendible, making it much easier for companies to take advantage of what Instagram has to offer.

Here are some are ways to utilize Instagram for your business.

Show what you do, creatively

Focus more on the solution that you provide, not just the products you sell. On Instagram, it is vital to add value to your customers and look pretty while doing it. Never underestimate the fact that your most important skill and asses on this social media network are your visual content.

If your business offers services make sure you focus on showing the process behind providing the service. It is important to share your mission with the world, show your company’s culture or simply share some how-tos and some tips. It is possible to upload short videos (Boomerangs), photos and videos up to one minute long.

Instagram Stories

You can use this feature to post slideshow-like pictures or videos that can be live only for 24-hours (however, you can save them to your phone to be re-used later, if you want). This feature is a direct competitor to the similar feature of Snapchat and is now being heavily updated by Instagram. There are some advantages to using Instagram Stories for businesses:

  • Can be used to share behind-the-scenes content that does not have to be so high in quality like your regular posts
  • Stories are displayed ad the top of your followers’ timelines which makes it much easier to see and click
  • You can experiment with different types of content such as short videos, photos, ‘boomerangs’ and live videos
  • Tagging other accounts, e.g. @microsoft in Stories is great for collaborators and influencer marketing
  • Fund additions like text, stickers and face filters will help you make your stories more interesting to your followers

Create the perfect profile

As a company, you probably do a lot more than you can fit in the 150 character limit bio. Focus on putting what’s the most important in your brand or what’s your next big thing – be it a promotion, event or product launch.

Since the only clickable link you can post on Instagram is in your Bio section, make sure you update it frequently. Most brands make the mistake of using it only to link to the homepage of their website since it could do a lot more.

Instagram last year launched its Instagram Business profiles and paid advertising. The Business profile option will allow you to add your phone number to your Bio and will give you access to extensive analytics data that you otherwise wouldn’t be able to see.

Wildlife photography, and dealing with a high contrast photo

This form of photography deals with the documentation of various wildlife in their natural habitat. Besides photography skills, wildlife photographers need field skills. Some animals are difficult to approach, so knowledge of their behavior is necessary to predict their actions. Capturing some specimens may even require stalking skills.

According to globosurfer.com while taking wildlife photos with basic equipment is possible, successful photography of some types of wildlife requires professional gadgets like underwater cameras for marine life, long focal length lenses for birds, and macro lenses for insects. A good wildlife image can also be made by simply being in the right place at the right time, but you should also follow some of the most common wildlife photography tips.

History

It was difficult to get a photo of wildlife in the early days of photography because of slow lenses and low sensitivity of photo media. Earlier pictures of animals were usually zoo animals, pets, or stuffed animals. For example, the lion cubs photo from Bristol zoo in 1854, as well as the photos of the last Quagga by Frank Hayes in 1864. Wildlife photography got better when faster emulsions and quicker shutters appeared in the 1880s. These advances lead to images such as the first shots of wild birds in action taken by Ottomar Anschutz, a German, in 1884. In July of 1906, National Geographic published its first wildlife photos by George Shiras III, an American from Pennsylvania. Some of these were taken with the first ever wire-tripped camera traps.

Definition

The Royal Photographic Society, the Photographic Society of America and the Fédération Internationale de l’Art Photographique are the three largest photography organizations in the world. They adopted a definition of nature and wildlife photography, in order to govern these competitions. Their presidents wrote a joint statement, which perfectly sums it up. The statement reads, “The development of a common definition for nature and wildlife photography will be an important step in helping photographers, many of whom enter competitions internationally, know what the rules are. It will also provide organizers with a very clear definition when they need to deal with the problem of ineligible images.”

Gear

Equipment for wildlife photography is very specialized. It uses different lenses and equipment than most of the other forms of photography. The lenses have a focal length between 150 and 600mm, and provide tighter images. Other specialized gear includes flash extenders, camera traps, and hides. The majority of wildlife is shot with a long telephoto lens. A wide-angle lens is also an option, offering striking images.

What is a High Contrast Image, and how to deal with one?

The high contrast image has an extreme exposure difference between the darkest and the brightest areas. Exposing for these images is tough, as exposing highlights results in clipping details in shadows, while exposing for shadows blows up the highlights.

The best examples of high contrast scenes are landscapes, an important part of wildlife photography. Amateur photographers try to expose the foreground, which results in the whitewashing of the sky and the loss of sky details. Naturally, if the sky is exposed, then the foreground is dark. So what is the best way to deal with this and create great photos?

1. Use Graduated ND Filters

Graduated ND filters are the favorite among landscape photographers. With these, you can use the dark section against the sky, getting a correctly exposed image.

2. Exposure Bracketing

This is one of the best techniques to deal with a high contrast image because you are able to take the same scene at multiple exposures by using the auto exposure feature of your cam. Later you can merge them in Photoshop. The camera takes three exposures by default, an overexposed image, an underexposed image, and a zero exposure image. These are then stitched together. Some cameras allow five or seven images.

3. Use In-camera HDR Mode

Some point and shoot and DSLR cameras come with the HDR mode. In this mode, the camera takes multiple pictures at multiple exposures and stitches them using the integrated software.

4. Fill in Flash Technique for Backlit Subjects

A backlit subject is another high contrast image situation. Portrait photographers tend to deal with these. If you expose the subject, the background blows up, while exposing for the background makes the subject dark. The best advice here is to fill in some light on the subject, but actually, expose the background. This will result in a great snap of a primary object and its surroundings!

In addition, you can use the fill-in flash technique. This ensures that the subject is well lit. Reflectors may also help to bounce and reflect light onto the subject.

5. Exposure Adjustment

You could also set the exposure somewhere in the middle. The brightest portion will become less bright, while the darkest one becomes less dark. To do this, you will need to shoot in RAW format.

The dynamic range of the camera sensor is much less in comparison to the human eye, which is the reason why it is not able to correctly expose a high contrast image. To take the best photo you can, you need to understand the dynamic range of the camera, which helps in finalizing what technique to use in a particular situation.

We hope our advice helps you in getting ready to take amazing nature photos and If you don’t have any camera, then it’s not a problem anymore. Black Friday is here and you should check out the best Black Friday deals on camera as well. Now go out there and make some art!
