Dropbox is a cloud storage service where your photos and videos are uploaded automatically as you take them. And they will remain stored online. You can use Dropbox mobile app to view your photos and videos on your mobile and the desktop app to see them on your computer. Both the apps i.e. Dropbox mobile app and Dropbox desktop app easily pull your photos over to local storage or an external hard drive. When you run the app for the first time, you will be prompted to set up how and when to backup your android phone photos.

Here are the pros and cons of using Dropbox  for your Android photo backup:

  • Pros: Full-resolution uploads; easy batch file transfers.
  • Cons: Free service only comes with 2GB of online storage, so you’ll need to be vigilant about moving or deleting files to avoid the limit hit or upgrading.

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!!
