Still don’t have your photos in the cloud? Do you save them on your device locally? This last option is one of the least recommended for any user. Having content only on your device can cause you to lose it forever if your device is broken or stolen. A new mobile can be bought, but several years of photographs cannot. Today we tell you how to save photos to cloud for free and in the simplest way. We are going to recommend you the free service par excellence and how to configure it to forget about everything.
Google Photos has everything you need and it’s free
At ProAndroid.com we have been using Google photos and we can only say good things about this service. Google offers it to all users in the world, even those who use a iPhone as a personal mobile. You only need to have a Gmail account to access and have your Google cloud space.
Google Photos has two ways to save your photos in the cloud: one free and one paid. The most interesting option to avoid having to worry about anything is the free one, although you will sacrifice a little photo quality. We have been using the free system for many years and this drop in quality is very small. Also, if you don’t have a high-end mobile, you won’t even notice this drop in quality.
If you choose the option to upload the original photos, you will have 15 GB of free space. When you have no more space you will have to increase the capacity of your Google Photos with a monthly payment. These payments range from 1.99 euros / dollars per month for 50 GB to several TB with much higher prices.
If what you are looking for is save mobile photos in the cloud safely and for free we recommend opting for the option Google Photos with High Quality. The payment is Original Quality. With the free option you will not have to worry about anything and you can store all the photos you want throughout your life.
Download Google Photos and make a full backup
In order to start using Google photos You just have to download the application on your mobile and log in with your Google account. When you are inside, the application will ask you for a small initial configuration to know how to act in each case. To have unlimited space you must select ‘High quality‘.
