Drop­box has been the go-to stor­age choice for many peo­ple for years, and gives users 2GB for free. After that you need to upgrade to the Pro ver­sion, which of­fers 1TB of stor­age for £6.58/$8.25 per month, if you pay an­nu­ally.

The sim­ple in­ter­face en­ables you to drag and drop the files you want to store on­line into a Drop­box folder on your ma­chine and then these are au­to­mat­i­cally stored in the cloud to mir­ror what is on your ma­chine. If you delete any of the files from your com­puter then the files are also re­moved from the server.

If you want to use Drop­box as ex­tended stor­age for your im­age files then these can be up­loaded through your browser and you can set up the on­line folder struc­ture in any way you want. Ei­ther way, once the files are in place they can be eas­ily shared with any­one you like.

Us­ing the mo­bile app is also easy and en­ables you to again pre­view, down­load and share your files eas­ily. While Drop­box doesn’t of­fer a ded­i­cated imag­ing ap­pli­ca­tion, the sim­ple folder struc­ture de­sign will ap­peal to those who like to have full con­trol over the way their files are stored and or­gan­ised.

Pros Easy to or­gan­ise and main­tain fold­ers

Cons Work­flow seems dated

We say Well in­te­grated with Mac and PC sys­tems, one for those who like to have full con­trol

Drop­box is handy for photo stor­age, but it’s re­ally de­signed for all sorts of file types
