Change How & When Auto Backup Photos are uploaded to Google+?

Last Updated :

Google+ is a social networking service where you can backup photos and videos to share with family and friends. Google+ allows you to automatically backup photos and video to your account. To do this, you need to turn ON 'Auto Backup' feature. To turn ON 'Auto Backup', open the 'Google+' app on your iOS device and tap 'Menu' icon. Tap 'Gear' icon located at the top right corner on the screen and select "Camera and Photos" option. Move slider from left to right to turn ON "Auto Backup". After you have turned ON 'Auto Backup', you can manage how and when photos and videos are uploaded to Google+ from your iOS device.

You can change the follwing Settings:

Full Size Backups:

This is a default setting in Google+. If you switch the setting to ON to choose 'Full Size Backups', it uploads your photos with their original resolution. You can upload photos up to 100 MB size limit. If you run out of storage limit, Google+ will send you the notification and it will automatically switch to storing photos at Standard Size. If you switch the setting to OFF, it uploads photos in Standard Size. If you choose this, your photos will be resized which is helpful for sharing your photos on the web. Google+ allows you to backup unlimited number of Standard Size photos.

When to Backup Photos:

Once 'Auto Backup' is enabled, you will see 2 options i.e "Over Wi-Fi or Mobile Network" & "Over Wi-Fi only". If you set 'Over Wi-Fi or Mobile Network', it will automatically backup photos when your device is connected to a Wi-Fi network or your mobile device. Backing up photos over your mobile network will use your data connection and charges may apply from your service provider. If you set 'Over Wi-Fi only', it will backup photos when your device is connected to a Wi-Fi network.

Backup All Photos and Videos:

If you tap 'Back up All', all your photos and videos will be backed up to Google+ from your iOS device. This will happen when your setting preferences will be done. If you have your Auto Backup set to only backup when your device is charging and you select 'Back up All' option, then it will begin to backup your photos and videos when your device is being charged.

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.
