The cloud allows us to have files accessible from anywhere, and something almost more important, we can also upload files from anywhere. And that is essential today to make a backup our photos.
There is nothing worse than losing some photos, whether they are special event or trip, and that’s why it is best to upload the photos to the cloud as soon as possible. In the market we have different cloud services for the iPhone, and we have selected the 5 best ones for you to upload your photos.
The best cloud services to upload your photos
We are going to talk to you mainly about 5 services. The first three are the best, since they are designed exclusively for uploading photos, but in all of them you can do an automatic copy of the photos they have taken with the iPhone or iPad.
It is Apple’s service and, therefore, it is the most comfortable. The iCloud Photo Library is synchronized without having to do practically anything, and it is also linked to the Photos app. Is especially useful if you have multiple Apple devices, since the photos from your iPhone, iPad or Mac will be shared, uploaded to the cloud and accessible on all devices and via the web.
You can activate the photos in iCloud from Adjustments> [Tu nombre] > iCloud> Photos and activating Photos in iCloud. The only problem is that with the free 5GB that Apple offers, you probably don’t have enough. However, you can expand your iCloud capacity for very little, € 0.99 per month for 50GB and € 2.99 per month for 200GB.
You most likely already have a Google account, so using Google Photos will be easier for you. Google offers 15GB free storage for your photos and videos. The app is available for iPhone, iPad and via the web, so you can access your photos from anywhere.
To activate automatic photo synchronization in Google Photos, follow these steps:
- Open the app and give access to all the photos in your gallery.
- Sign in with your Google account.
- At the top right click on your profile.
- Tap on Photo Settings.
- Tap Backup and sync.
- Hit the switch.
- In Size of uploaded files you can choose the quality, Original or High quality.
- Tap Confirm.
It is another of the most recommended apps since many of us have an Amazon account. Amazon offers 5GB of storage for free, but if you are Amazon Prime subscriber, you will have unlimited storage photos with no resolution or quality restrictions. And remember that being from Amazon Prime has many more advantages for very little money.
This is how you can configure Amazon Photos to upload your photos automatically:
- Open the Amazon Photos app and sign in.
- You must give access to your photos.
- Tap More on the bottom navigation bar.
- Select Uploads.
- Press Automatic saving and also activate the videos if you wish.
- Below you can select if you want to upload your photos also using mobile data.
Dropbox is one of the best cloud storage services, but in this case it does not have a specific app for photos. However, we can configure your main app for this same task. It is a platform to use if you already have an account, since it only offers 2GB of space with your free plan.
- Open the Dropbox app and log in.
- Tap the Account icon on the bottom toolbar.
- Tap Camera uploads.
- You will need to have a large storage plan, or connect a computer so that the photos are sent directly to it.
He Microsoft’s cloud service is also one of the most widely used since through Microsoft 365 we can have a lot of storage and other services. This you must do to upload your photos to OneDrive.
- Open OneDrive and sign in.
- At the top left click on your profile.
- Now tap on Settings.
- Click on Camera upload and activate your account.
With these services you will never lose your photos. If, for example, you are an Amazon Prime subscriber, or you have a Microsoft 365 account, you can take advantage of the storage that they offer.
If you don’t pay for any services, Google Photos is the best solution since it offers the most storage. Yes, our personal recommendation is to use iCloud as it works very well and syncs without having to do practically anything.
