Cloud Photo Manager

What are other recommendations for managing photos through a website like Apple's iCloud.com?

If I have 70GBs of photos, then where can I upload them for safekeeping and organize them nicely?  This way I could share them with others and free up space on my devices that are currently holding my photos.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I'm using Google photos. Free storage if you specify high quality vs original quality. Google will resize any photos over 16mp, down to 16.
Easy to share and Google does some nice linking together of photos with "stories" and animations. Automatically highlights photos. Etc

What do you think? Have you checked it out?

I highly recommend Amazon Cloud Drive, unlimited photo storage for a very small fee per year, its backed by the AWS S3 architecture that provides 99.999999999% durability of your data ensuring its integrity and availability.

Easy to use, easy to organise, and there are a number of tools out there that integrate with it too allowing you to essentially map a drive to your Cloud Drive providing easy drag and drop.

There are also Apps out there for your IOS devices allowing you to get to all your photos from your phone/Ipad etc.

Stu has reminded me that there are also apps for Google photos available for all devices (phone, tablet, desktop) to automatically sync your photos. Completely customisable in terms of what folders etc

I would recommend Flickr. With 1 Tb (1000 Gb) of FREE  storage, it's hard to beat (www.flickr.com requires a Yahoo account).

You can create albums and share with whomever you wish, or not share at all.

There is also an app from Flickr that allows you to choose what photos you want to transfer.

You can see the restrictions concerning the uploading of files and videos here:  Upload limitations in Flickr https://ca.help.yahoo.com/kb/SLN15628.html
With 1 TB of space, you can upload countless memories to Flickr. Yet, with great [storage] power comes great responsibility. Review our limitations for uploading to Flickr.

Read this article on alternatives.

You see several mentioned and two of their iCloud personnel find it best to combine services to get what they desire.

Two of the ones they mention are: Transporter and BitTorrent Sync. (as well as others)
