How can I back up my photos while on vacation?

Episode 1251 (12:30)

Scott from Richland, WA
Apple Photos

Scott is about to go on vacation to Australia and he wants to know how iCloud works with the images on his iPad. Leo says that he can turn on iCloud Photo Library in his phone and it will upload his images when connected to Wi-Fi to save space on his phone. Can he upload from his Nikon with his iPad? Leo says he can shoot raw, but it may not go up to the cloud. They will upload high quality JPEGs. But Scott should be wary, because Nikon also adds a lower quality JPEG that it loads to the LCD for review. In many cases, the lower quality image will get copied instead. So he'll want to be sure he keeps the memory card. Think of them as rolls of film while he's on vacation.
