RAW sup­port

Not all cloud stor­age of­fers RAW sup­port, so while your files will still be stored, you won’t be able to browse them to find the pic­tures you need.

Au­to­matic up­loads

All ser­vices of­fer au­to­matic up­loads; once ac­ti­vated you can high­light fold­ers on your ma­chine to be au­to­mat­i­cally up­loaded to the cloud.

Desk­top soft­ware

Although all ser­vices op­er­ate on­line, they’re all sup­ported by desk­top ap­pli­ca­tions that en­able you to mon­i­tor the stor­age and change op­tions.

Back-up vs stor­age

Most cloud ser­vices here of­fer two forms of stor­age; au­to­matic back-up of what you have on your HD, and more tra­di­tional file stor­age.
