Back­ing up pho­tos to the cloud

TechLife Australia - - THE WALL -

As a long-term TechLife sub­scriber, I have read over the years about var­i­ous apps that can find and sort pho­tos but can’t think of them right now. I have pho­tos on my PC, iPad, iPhone and in iCloud and would like them all stored in the cloud in year or­der in a for­mat that is ac­ces­si­ble from any de­vice. How would you sug­gest I go about this? [ VANESSA ]

Ed replies: Our cur­rent favourite for this kind of cross-de­vice, all-en­com­pass­ing photo backup is to use Google Pho­tos, which has ap­pli­ca­tions on iOS, Android, PC and Mac that, once in­stalled and con­fig­ured, will au­to­mat­i­cally up­load any pho­tos on your de­vices to the cloud. It’s free for up­load­ing any pho­tos up to 16MP and videos up to 1080p — if you want higher-res­o­lu­tion (i.e. pro­fes­sional-grade) backups, you’ll need to take up a sub­scrip­tion.
