Best Google Photos alternatives
These are the best Google Photos alternatives-
- Amazon Photos
- iCloud Photos
Let’s check out this list in detail.
1] Amazon Photos
If you have an account on Amazon (and we think you do), you can get 5 GB of free storage to store your photos and videos. No matter if you have a computer, mobile, or tablet – it is possible to synchronize those uploaded content across multiple devices. The best thing is that you do not need an Amazon Prime membership. However, Prime membership holders get unlimited storage for photos and 5 GB storage for videos. Some of the other features are – share images with friends, order prints, hide them from the timeline, edit date and time, etc. Visit the official website of Amazon Photos to start uploading your memories.
2] iCloud Photos
iCloud Photos, by Apple, is yet another Google Photos alternative with 5 GB of free storage. Like Google Photos, you can find all the uploaded files in one place so that you can download or do anything else. As usual, it is possible to share uploaded pictures with your friends and family. Regarding the sharing options, you can create a unique link and send it to someone. Next up, it lets you create albums, but you cannot share the entire album with anybody. By default, it categorizes all the files by date, but you can get rid of that by switching to the Photos tab. If you already have an Apple ID, visit the official website to start uploading.
Days are gone when Flickr used to provide 1 TB of free storage to upload and store content. However, now you can get only the 1000 photos and videos option on Flickr if you do not have a paid subscription. Although it offers almost all the essential options to manage files on the website, there is a tiny but crucial drawback. Whenever you upload files to this website, you will have to take care of the Privacy settings. As the default settings will make your images and videos public, it is recommended to expand the Privacy section and choose Only visible to you and Hidden from public searches options. Apart from that, it is good to go. Visit the official website to know more.
Even if you do not have a paid subscription, you will get 5 GB of free storage with a Microsoft account. If you are already using Outlook, open the official website of OneDrive and start enjoying the free 5 GB storage to upload your videos and images. If you have some highly confidential files, you can begin using the Personal Vault, the second layer of security. The user interface of OneDrive is neat and clean so that anybody can start using it without prior knowledge. On the other hand, you can synchronize your files across multiple devices with the OneDrive app.
If you want to opt for a local media server, Plex is one of the best solutions you can use. It is an open-source media center software that you can install on your computer and upload your files. Following that, you will be able to access those files from another device as well. Whether you have images or videos, you can upload the file to the personalized Plex server and start streaming it. We have already shared a detailed guide on the setup process, and it is recommended to check it to start using Plex. Also, check out the official website to download the tool.
MediaFire is another handy Google Photos alternative with 10 GB of free storage. As cloud storage, you can upload almost anything, including photos, videos, documents, music, etc. The UI is uncluttered as you can organize different files in different folders. For example, you can upload images to the Photos folder, videos to the Videos folder, etc. The best thing about MediaFire is that you can create a unique link to send a file to someone. Apart from that, you can share your images and videos via various social networking websites as well. Visit the official website to learn more.
7] Dropbox Basic
Dropbox allows users to upload pictures and videos worth up to 2 GB. As Dropbox is feature-rich cloud storage, you will like it for sure. From uploading to sharing – everything is smooth on Dropbox. Like MediaFire, you can share files with your friends and allow them to view the content. Another handy feature is the app installation. You can install or connect various apps to Dropbox and get the most out of your account instantly. As it is possible to change the view of folders and files, you can choose something that suits your needs. The last but not the least feature is the shared folder. If you want to share a party’s pictures with your friends or family, you can create a shared folder and start uploading files together. If you like, you can visit the official website.
After the rollout of Google Photos limitation, it will not be easy to find an alternative with unlimited storage.
