Backup Your Smartphone Photos to One or More of These Cloud Services

Last Updated :

Keeping safe your smartphone photos is very important these days. In an event where your phone is lost, broken or stolen, recovering photos and videos becomes easy if you have had backed them onto to safe location other than your smartphone. Additionally, creating a backup of your smartphone photos & videos is also a good way to free up some space on your device. There are a number of options where you can backup your phone photos and access them from multiple devices as and when required. For instance, the options available to you are Apple's iCloud (for iOS & Osx users), Flickr, OneDrive, and Google Photos.

Google Photos - The latest and the most powerful of all the online photo storage options is Google Photos. It offers unlimited photo storage (up to 16 megapixels in size). Since most phones and point-and-shoot cameras don't exceed 16 megapixels in quality, it will look similar to the original. You can keep the originals of your photos without any kind of compression, but that will count against your free 15GB of Google Drive storage. Upgrading to 100GB of storage is $1.99 a month, and 1TB of storage is $9.99 a month. 'Google photos' is available as an app for iOS and Android, and on the web at photos.google.com.

Apple iCloud - Apple's iCloud photo storage is great for iPhone users because it automatically will backup photos as you take them in the camera app. Apple only gives you 5GB of free storage, however, with the option to pay for more. 50GB of space costs $0.99, 200GB costs $2.99, and 1TB costs $9.99. Photos are synced across all iOS devices, as well as Mac OS X.

Flickr - Flickr is a popular option among photographers because it offers 1TB of free storage. This means you'll have plenty of space to keep the highest quality version of your photos in the cloud.

Microsoft OneDrive - OneDrive is a great option if you already are a subscriber to Office 365 because it includes 1TB of storage free. If you don't already subscribe to Office 365, plans start at $6.99 a month for 1TB of storage.

PicBackMan does exactly what it's supposed to. It's quick and efficient. It runs unobtrusively in the background and has done an excellent job of uploading more than 300GB of photos to 2 different services. After having lost a lot of personal memories to a hard drive crash, it's nice to know that my photos are safe in 2 different places.

LOVE this program! Works better than ANY other program out there that I have found to upload thousands of pictures WITH SUB-FOLDERS to SmugMug! Thank you so much for what you do! :) #happycustomer

I pointed PicBackMan at a directory structure, and next time I looked - all the photos had uploaded! Pretty cool. I use SmugMug and while I really like it, the process of creating directories in is pretty laborious when you need to make 80+ at a time. This was a breeze. Thank you!

PicBackMan was really easy to setup and has been running for 3 days now backing up all my locally saved photos to Flickr. My photos are really valuable to me so it's great to be able to have them easily backed up to a secure location.
