Best Cloud Photo Storage

Should you use online photo storage? Sync.com ranks first in the list of the five best cloud storage for photos, though there are other viable alternatives. Users today need to make sure that their data is backed up, to prevent data loss, because losing priceless irrecoverable photos is infuriating –to say the least. And most of the services here cost less than the price of a fast food meal (stop clogging your arteries with fat). So there isn’t any good excuse to forgo a cloud storage or online backup service. Remember, it only takes one hardware failure to ruin priceless photos, so it is wise to use online photo storage to back them up in the cloud or sync them across your devices where you can access them anywhere.

The score Since the last time we checked, thanks to features like auto-upload, these services have roughly achieved feature parity. Annoyingly, though, the features usually only work when the apps are running in the background, so you have to open them every few weeks while you’re on Wi-Fi and let them do their work. There are still differences in the services at the edges, though, notably around which services will import your photos from social networks. It’s arguably less important than ever which service you pick Because photo storage services have evolved to become so similar, it’s arguably less important than ever which one you pick. And the free options of these services are so good, you should feel free to hedge your bets by doubling or tripling up. (I have auto-upload turned on for five of the above services, and I only pay for Picturelife.) Making a decision around photo storage these days likely has more to do with which giant ecosystem you prefer than which service is best designed for hosting your photos. But however you proceed, you should back up your camera roll to a cloud service, if only so you can free up space on your phone. Google+ remains my favorite free option, because most photos look great at 2048 pixels and Google will let you store as many of those pictures as you want with them. Its automated GIFs and photo albums remain unique years after their launch, and they make browsing old photos fun in a way most services can’t match. Best of all, there are rumors that Google will finally spin photos back off into a separate product this year — and the foundation the company has laid with Google+ should make it a great solution. For a paid option, I cautiously recommend Picturelife. Incredibly, it’s the only one of the services here that reliably imports photos from the many social networks I post to, giving me a single inbox for my pictures. Internet giants want to pretend that no other companies exist, but as long as I’m being randomly tagged in friends’ photos on Facebook and posting strange screenshots to Twitter, I need a place that organizes it. And I’m happy to pay Picturelife to do it. It’s a strange time for photo storage It’s a strange time for photo storage. It’s never been more important, and yet even the biggest consumer internet companies barely seem to be paying attention. On one hand, I can hardly blame them — it’s a proposition that has proven singularly unprofitable. And yet I still can’t believe there isn’t a billion-dollar business to be built out of our collective need to remember. So yes, this is all a bit harder than it should be. And no one wants to pay for a service they’re getting for free — even if that service is just a camera roll rapidly chewing through the storage on your phone. But odds are you’ll take more photos this year than you ever have before. And you ought to take those photos seriously, even if most big internet companies won’t.

All-time greatest album The best way to manage your photos online in 2015 By Casey Newton In August 2013, we reviewed the best services for storing your photos in the cloud. Nearly two years later, much has changed. Everpix, our pick for average users, went out of business. Picturelife, our choice for power users, sold itself to StreamNation. And Google+ remains a worthy free choice, even if Google’s plans for photos are very much up in the air. In the meantime, the pace of innovation has slowed to a crawl. Giants like Apple and Amazon have improved their services and lowered prices. But they’ve barely invested anything in resurfacing old photos, or helping you enjoy them. It’s fair to question whether photo storage even makes sense as a dedicated service in 2015. Photos are some of the most important files you’ll ever create The thing is, photos are some of the most important files you’ll ever create. We’re taking more photos than ever — an estimated 900 billion photos will be uploaded to the web this year. And billions more live on our camera rolls, waiting for us to back them up, erase them, or — amazingly — simply discard them when we give up and buy a new phone. I’m losing count of the people who tell me that they can’t take any more photos because their smartphones are out of storage space. And yet I can’t fault them — every time I start explaining an “easy” way to back up their photos and free up some space again, I realize it still isn’t easy enough. But there’s real value in using dedicated photo services. Because auto-uploading features are now standard, I can be confident that whenever I snap a photo, it’s quickly backed up to the cloud. Because photos are a uniquely visual file format, good services have designed apps that are fun to browse and easy to search. (No more rummaging through file folders with arcane names like 1999-Oct-41.) And because photos are a powerful source of nostalgia, some of these apps regularly send me push notifications leading me to favorite old photos I might never have thought to look for again. Most importantly, they allow me to stop using my phone’s camera roll as a default back-up solution, letting me delete photos as needed to free up space. So which service should you pick? We’ve winnowed out our list of services to consider to a manageable eight, looking for a storage system that best balances power, ease of use, and value. Completists will also want to check out indies like Everalbum, Joomeo, and Shoebox, but my experience with short-lived predecessors like Everpix and Loom has made me wary of recommending them to the masses. As for the more established Adobe Revel — it’s an aggressively meh product and didn’t make the cut.
