We have a graphics designer who is using Macbook pro laptop.

She stores all her photos from her iPhone (because she takes a ton) in the Photos app.

The photos app currently has photos going back 5 years and it is filling up space on her hard drive of the laptop.

Can someone recommend a solid solution to archive her photos from the Photos app?

Here are the requirements in the order of priority.

1. Easiest way to export/archive so a normal user can do it.
2. Preferably cloud destination but export to external HDD should be fine.
3. The exported/archived data should be readable from anywhere i.e. even from a PC.
4. Import back at a later date should work properly in the sense that the imported photos should appear as they did before they were exported/archived.

Ask any questions if you need more information on the environment.
