Photo Backup Services Are Aplenty, But Here Are Top 5 Best Ones

The day and age of keeping a point-and-shoot camera in our pockets is long gone, and we all rely on our smartphones (and tablets, at times) to snap images when we’re out and about. After all, the best camera is the one which is always with you right? We agree to that wholeheartedly. But the thing is, there might come a point during using our smartphone or tablet where things might hit a roadblock and we are forced to let go of all our data in our devices, and this can happen due to a variety of reasons – device got lost, damaged or something unforeseen. In that case, you’d wish you had taken a back up of everything in the cloud, more specifically of your photos, so that things aren’t lost given any condition.

Keeping that in mind, today we will highlight the top 5 photo backup services which you can utilize on your iPhone, iPad and iPod touch, and keep your snaps well secured in the cloud.

Google Photos

Google Photos is absolutely amazing in terms of features, and it gets the job done in a very swift manner. It even organizes your photos based on a bunch of different parameters. To cut the long story short, Google Photos, if used wisely, can end up replacing your stock Photos app on your iPhone, iPad for good.

Flickr is a massive community for photographers, and luckily gives users 1000GB of cloud storage in which they can store all of their snaps. Of course, your photos will remain private, until or unless you choose to share them with someone else at any given time. And lastly, organizing photos is a breeze with Flickr, and things are topped off with editing and filtering features.

As we mentioned above, Flickr gives users 1000GB of free cloud storage.

A service that is at the forefront when it comes to cloud storage, Dropbox allows users to create a backup of photos whenever required. It’s absolutely easy to set up and use, and given that most of us already have a Dropbox account already, therefore getting to grips with it is an absolutely easy affair.

While Dropbox does offer 2GB of free storage, but you have to shell out $9.99 if you wish to opt for 1TB of storage.

Amazon Photos

If you’re an Amazon Prime subscriber, then Amazon Photos is the way to go for all your photo backup needs. It features absolutely free unlimited storage, given that you’re a Prime subscriber, and it features a relatively easy to understand interface.

As we mentioned above, cloud storage on Amazon Photos is free if you’re a Prime subscriber, and you’ll be required to shell out some money if you aren’t.

iCloud Photo Library

Last but not the least, iCloud Photo Library, Apple’s very own photo backup service gets the job done in a brilliant fashion. The best part about it is that you do not have to install anything on your device and it works like magic. Backups are made whenever you plug your iPhone or iPad into a power outlet.

iCloud Photo Library comes with 5GB of free storage and you have to shell out $0.99 a month for 50GB, $2.99 for 200GB and $9.99 for 1TB of storage a month.
