Backup your DSLR photos using your Android device.
e.g. Using USB host to add a card reader and external hard drive to backup your camera memory card with your tablet/phone. Tested on Asus TF101.

Note: Connecting your camera directly to your device should work if your camera supports a "USB storage" type mode for transfers. PTP/MTP is only available in Honeycomb 3.1.x. PTP/MTP isn't supported by the app at this time.

Tested on:
Android 2.3.5 - Device

Extract jpeg preview images from raw files for viewing on your device.
Note: Preview image size selectable approx 320 x 240 or 640 x480 in free version.

USB Host is required if you want to copy files from an attatched external card reader or hard drive, but the app can be used to copy files around and extract preview images for files already on the device.

Supported formats (for preview image extraction):
For 'Supported Formats' see Supported Formats

If you have raw photo files that can't be processed, email me a couple and I will try to add support for them in the app.

Generated preview images sizes can now be 320 x 240 or 640 X 480.
Backup mode can be configured to do one of three things:
1. Backup files
2. Backup files and extract previews.
3. Just Extract previews.
Note: The "Backup" button and description will change to match the selected mode.

Getting started:

Photos can be backed up 'with' or 'without' Preview images. Click on the Links below to find instructions for both options.

Backup Instructions

Backup with Preview Instructions

Use the "Config" button to configure the source and destination folders for your backup.

"Backup" will then copy all the files from the source folder and sub folders to the destination folder.

These folders need to be under "/mnt", "/sdcard" "/removable" or start with "/usb" before you are allowed to perform a backup.

The status information will help you with your folder selection.

Enable the preview option to create a small jpeg preview of each photo during the copy.

The preview images can be viewed with your favourite image viewer and are added to the gallery.

File Browser:
Tap folders to enter them.
Tap parent directory or the back button to come back out.
Press and hold for a context menu to select folder.
Keep pressing the back button to exit without making a selection.
Tap image file to view.

Image Preview:
Photos in the source folder are displayed on the main screen. The main photo can be changed by dragging the gallery control (looks a bit like a film strip) or by swiping left/right. Tap image to view full screen.
