    I need a solution to a simple question

    I have a Macbook Pro with 256gb and an iPad pro with 32gb

    I also have Dropbox, Google Drive iCloud Amazon etc with terabytes of storage

    But they always have a local copy of the files which fills up my MacBook storage - unless i unsync after I upload them - which is a pain

    So i need a solution where I can put all my photos online accessible and with no local copies (and preferably accessible from my iPad Pro)

    also a way to get the photos online via my iPad so I can use my iPad as my main travel device

    I have used expand drive - but it costs money which is fine - but these things tend to disappear after a few years

    and I want to put all my photos online backed up

    is there a solution to this without the hassle ?

    I'm unfamiliar with a storage service that don't keep local copies on your device. Hopefully, someone who does will reply soon.

    The whole local storage thing is a pain
    when you have limited internal memory
    and want to backup all my photos to a cloud solution

    HELP !!! :-)

    Use OneDrive. Don't "sync". Manually copy/upload the pictures to the service.
    You could probably accomplish the same thing with DropBox.
