There is another method to backup your photos to Google servers without getting your gallery filled with photos from your past i.e. cached photos. Using the Google+ Photos App (which is an extension of the app Google+) on your Android phone you can easily remove unwanted cached photos from your phone. To begin with, download the Google+ app if you have not and you will find it in your app drawer.

To backup photos via Google+ 'Photos' app follow these steps:

  1. Open the Google+ Photos app from your app drawer.
  2. Click on the options menu (three vertical dots or dashes).
  3. Click on Settings.
  4. Click on Auto Backup.
  5. Turn the option to On.
NOTE : You will also be able to customize different options like photo sizes to backup, backing up photos via Wi-Fi only, backing up while charging only and so on.

This way, your photos will be backed up to your Google+ photos. They are always set to private unless you decide to change the privacy settings.

Quick Tip to ensure your Photos never go missing
Photos are precious memories and all of us never want to ever lose them to hard disk crashes or missing drives. PicBackMan is the easiest and simplest way to keep your photos safely backed up in one or more online accounts. Simply download PicBackMan (it's free!), register your account, connect to your online store and tell PicBackMan where your photos are - PicBackMan does the rest, automatically. It bulk uploads all photos and keeps looking for new ones and uploads those too. You don't have to ever touch it.

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.

It's AWESOME!! I have tens of thousands of pictures...and they are now successfully uploaded to SmugMug, where they are safely backed up, and I can edit and organize them. If you are hesitating about using PicBackMan, hesitate no longer...try it...and you'll be glad you did!!
