Archive photos to Flickr

Use the web­site’s free 1TB of stor­age to back up and share your iOS snaps

Mac Format - - IMPROVE -

If you rou­tinely sync your iPad and iPhone with your Mac and use iCloud stor­age, you might not be too con­cerned about los­ing your Ap­ple de­vice. It can cost a lot to store photos this way, though. And stor­ing huge amounts of data slows your iPad or iPhone. Plus, it’s no fun sift­ing through thou­sands of pics when you don’t have the time to find a par­tic­u­lar one.

Flickr is free and of­fers a whop­ping 1TB of stor­age. You can view slideshows online as well as on your iPad or iPhone, and you have full con­trol over whether photos are pri­vate, shared with friends and fam­ily or with the wider world. The app’s Auto-Uploadr func­tion syncs your iPad and iPhone photos to your Flickr ac­count, or you can upload in­di­vid­ual photos from your Cam­era Roll. Rosie Hat­ter­s­ley

iCloud’s great, but Flickr’s 1TB of online stor­age make for the per­fect repos­i­tory for your dig­i­tal photos, es­pe­cially as you can upload large orig­i­nal im­age sizes as they were cap­tured on a DSLR.
