Keep pictures in sync over 2 Iphones-2 Ipads, Dropbox, Icloud (and Cloudstation -Synology-)?
Posted on 2014-08-19
Let me first explain my current setup:
2 Iphones, 2 Ipads (all logged in with the same user) have Dropbox en Icloud sync enabled.
So what happens picture is taken by any device:
=> sync over all iphones/ipads via icloud => great
=> picture is uploaded to dropbox so I can manage the picture (organize) on any laptop/pc
(also have "synology Photo" app that does the same as dropbox but to my own nas/Synology (in order to test if I could replace dropbox by my own cloud/synology -not sure if I will though, not for now anyhow-)
Problem in this setup:
I want to manage pictures, delete/organize in albums on pc BUT:
*pictures deleted on dropbox get synced again from iphone
*pictures deleted on iphone get synced from one to another
What I need:
Solution in which I can:
*easily delete pictures and deletion is done over all devices
*sync the "organized" albums to all devices (I do use sharing albums via Icloud, it's a nice feature but makes things more complicated
Struggling with these setup for some years now. I can't start organizing my pictures as long as this sync isn't setup properly.
Note: I really DON'T like Itunes, it ruins my Windows pc totally and doesn't offer me more then a sync (don't use any of its other features) so I'd like to avoid that progam as much as possible.
