    What are you all using for storing photos and videos? I originally used iCloud to store all my 10,000 photos and videos (and had to pay extra per month obviously) but I just had nothing but problems. My devices never seemed to sync properly. The uploads would take days and then time out and skip batches. Then when trying to play back videos they would take forever to load. The last time I touched iCloud for photo/video storage was probably last summer. Has it improved any since then?

    Since then, I've been using Google Photos. I love it because it's free, is easy to share, has auto-uploads, loads videos/pics quickly, and seems to sync across devices perfectly. It's the one app/function that I really think Android has knocked it out of the park over Apple.

    I iCloud for short term storage, Dropbox for miscellaneous pics like wallpaper and screenshots, and Microsoft's OneDrive for long-term storage.

    I just started using Amazon Photos because it offers unlimited photo storage for Prime members.

    You should! Prime Instant Video is underrated. I just wish they would release an AppleTV app. At least it's AirPlay compatible.

    Box for most photos, png images, gifs and short videos. Dropbox for specialty things. OneDrive for large videos and camera roll back up.

    I bought the prime stick for $20. I use that. I kick myself for not buying the echo at $99

    I use to use Amazon photos but they didn't accept all my file types as part of the "free" allotment and you have to pay extra for videos.

    You can do that, but I prefer not to keep thousands of photos on my camera roll. Most are organized neatly in folders and subfolders in the Box app.

    I create folders/albums in iOS as well for some things (wallpapers, pictures of @DevilishBanker from Vegas that he doesn't want people to see, etc.) No subfolders, though.

    I use iCloud Photo Library, without issue, but also have them backed up to Dropbox.

    I like the subfolders. I go deep with them. I'm staying away from iCloud Photo Library. Too confusing and many have issues with it. I back up what is on my phone to iCloud. That's it. The rest are in Box, Dropbox and OneDrive. I also use Google Photos. I try keeping the photos on my camera roll to less than 200.

    Thanks for the info, but I find it somewhat risky to upload photo online.

    What do you think is risky about it? Just security issues people seeing your photos on accident?

    Been using Dropbox forever. I like how it keeps copies on my PC and laptop and everything is synced.

    I use Flickr for my photos and videos. It's baked right into iOS. 1 TB of storage free.

    I use this a lot -- take a screenshot or another picture, and I can usually open it on my desktop within about 30 seconds, if not sooner.
