That’s how I organize my photos on Android, iOS, Windows, and Mac

This is how I organize my photos on Android, iOS , Windows, and Mac

There comes a time when we accumulate so many pictures disordered we do not know what to do with them. I tell my personal tricks to organize photos in the cloud and in your computer.

As editor of the Mobile section Hypertext I try many phones to write reviews, and of course, during the time I’m trying, I stop using my phone to dedicate my full attention. Switching between phones is something that I have fairly automated, but there something that I do not yet accustomed. Having hundreds of photos disordered the terminal for several folders is something I can not extend in time, then it becomes a disaster. Usually I set the phone to upload directly to the cloud. Today I will review alternative ways of achieving organize photos in it and local

In Android


In Android use three services (OneDrive, Dropbox and Google Drive) that I upload my photos, and all have official application enabled to upload photos to corresponding folder of photos into the cloud as I connect to a WiFi network. The problem is that Dropbox, and Drive leave OneDrive not select which folders you want to upload , but assign a default route. Also, your synchronization options are summarized in coming up with WiFi or data, and upload video or just photos. Very limited. Here comes one of my favorite applications, FolderSync . In addition to supporting my three services, it is also compatible with Mega, Amazon Cloud Drive, Copy, Box, etc.

What does? Basically lets you choose to synchronize directories as they do on the Mac or PC, and files can be downloaded to mobile, in one way or bi-directionally. To this is added rules. My setup is to upload the photos at 4 in the morning whenever I find my WiFi network with the charger connected, erasing after photos mobile. With that I despreocupo. For each cell, I believe in FolderSync a rule, whereby the three services photos will be in a folder with the name of each terminal, rather than a “camera Rises”. The order is complete, and the possibilities endless , it supports all file types.

The price of FolderSync is € 2.85 , and I think even lower for everything he does. There is also free version, but somewhat limited.

In iOS


I’m using Android but in my everyday use and also take pictures with an iPad, which also interests me organize photos in both systems. For iOS there is no alternative as powerful as FolderSync, but CameraSync compliant as photo uploader . Due to the limitations of iOS, is the only role, though.

CameraSync lets you choose the folder rise, the quality of the photos and how to upload in the background . By default, the rise in the background on iOS is somewhat limited, but CameraSync brings into play the type of synchronization in the background who invented Marco Arment for Instapaper, whereby when it detects that came to a desired location, start the climb. It’s also smart, and if you upload a file to the cloud and then delete it, it detects and no upload again.

You can download CameraSync on the App Store at a price of € 2.99 .

In Windows Phone


In Windows Phone not much variety. By default we use OneDrive, which seamlessly integrates, but the problem is the same as Android and iOS. The official apps do not rise to directories you assign, but to default. So my choice is CloudSix , Dropbox client Rudy Huynh, who besides being the developer’s official Dropbox app also pampers this alternative, allowing you to choose the upload directory.

CloudSix is free.

Moving files between cloud services


In Hypertext discussed makes a copying files between different services in the cloud, and it’s like it worked. I am making automatic backups of photos once I have finished the review of the terminal, according to the service which has more free space. Is relatively Invisible and very effective .

For Windows and Mac

For Windows and Mac use the full synchronization of photography services to use, so always files have local . I have wanted to see if I could automate photo uploads to albums new Photos app, as you may edit photos easily and could access all the photos from the iPad much more comfortably in Mac. As a manager, organizer and editing program, use Lightroom.

So far, I do a kind of private backup to Flickr with two great apps available for Windows and Mac separately. Note that the climb to Flickr by the web is not broken, but a web service is usually more unstable and the web is just doing heavy


So in Mac use F -stop , an application to manage all aspects of Flickr. I use it for, as I said, create private albums and upload photos at full resolution, because luckily Flickr offers 1TB of storage. The conditions of Flickr may change, but for now also let us make massive discharges of what we have uploaded , which is not bad temporary backup.

In Windows find a solution even brighter, photosync that comes to converting a Dropbox Flickr photo . We say we can index folders, and all changes detected in them rises to Flickr in full resolution, to albums under the name of the folder. It is very comfortable, and in fact miss something in Mac.
