Every professional photographer uses some sort of backup method to save their photos. If you are a professional photographer and do not use online cloud storage for backup, it is high time you should. Physical storage is not only expensive but risky too. When they are damaged or stolen or lost, you can never access them unless you have the original photo kept somewhere else. But nothing like this occurs in the case of cloud storage. With your photos saved on cloud storage, you can access them from anywhere, and get them updated automatically when you make any changes. Cloud storage provides additional security to your files too. So, without wasting time, let us discuss what are the top 4 best cloud storage options for you to choose from. 

Top 4 Best Cloud Storage For Photographers

Dropbox

 

If you work remotely, dropbox will be a good option for you to share your photos with your clients. It has partnerships with different apps that will enable you to share your photos among your desired platforms easily. You can also save different types of files in dropbox. If you do not want to store a photo, you can delete it from the cloud by simply deleting it from your computer. Under the professional plan that costs $19.99 per month or $199 per year, they will provide 3 TB storage along with extra features. But the drawback of dropbox is, the free plan allocates only 2 GB of storage space. So if you want to avail of it as a professional, you will need to buy a subscription.

Onedrive

 

 

Along with Microsoft, Onedrive supports Android, Mac, and iOS devices. Tagging is effortless in the Onedrive storage as it has special features to automatically recognize the images to tag. So, finding photos will not be a big deal using the theme tag. The Microsoft 365 Personal plan is pretty cheap, at $5.99 per month or $59.99 per year, you will get 1 TB of storage. The free version offers 5GB free storage. If you are already using Microsoft Office apps, you can get all the more benefits from this subscription. You will be allowed to use these apps on 5 computers. There are some additional offers like more sharing limits, monthly 60-minute Skype calls for free, various productivity tools, etc. too.  

Adobe Creative Cloud 

 

You probably have already been using Adobe Photoshop or Adobe Lightroom. Thankfully, The online cloud storage of Adobe does not charge you as big as its image editors. Adobe Creative Cloud costs only $9.99 per month and provides 1TB storage along with Lightroom. If you do not need that much storage but want to use both Photoshop and Lightroom, you can go for the Photography plan, which offers both Photoshop and Lightroom subscriptions, and 20GB storage space. In the monthly subscription of $19.99, you get both the software along with 1GB storage. You can upload photos from any device, irrespective of the operating system. There is an option for others to share their photos in the group libraries. Moreover, it is fully compatible with RAW files. 

Google Photos

 

Though it offers 15GB of free storage, all the other Google apps like Google Drive, Google docs, Google Sheets, and others come under this space. The same goes for its paid plans which are- a $1.99 monthly plan for an extra 100 GB, a $2.99 monthly plan for an extra 200 GB, and a $9.99 monthly plan for an extra 2 TB. There is a 30 TB for $149 per month subscription offer too. But if you store huge data in other Google apps regularly, then no plan will be fully feasible for you to store your photos exclusively. You will probably end up keeping on purchasing extra spaces now and then. If you do not have many photos to store or have different backup storage already, you can of course use the free version of Google photos. But there also, keep in mind that it does not support all file types. But Google photos is a good storage option in terms of convenience and user-friendliness.
