Hi Chris and Jim, I just viewed your video on Picasa and learned that there is no real Picasa for iPhone or iPad. You suggest Dropbox to manage ¬†pix. However, dropbox has a limit of 2 GB free storage. The next Pro level is $99/year which is quite stiff. I have currently about 6 GB of pix on my iPhone 5s and need to move them (I don’t have enough memory to upgrade to iOS 8). Besides Dropbox can you recommend other storage (preferably free) in the cloud rather than on a ¬†computer? Thank you, Hans

OneDrive – the Microsoft cloud offering would be a good one. Or the new iCloud photos from Apple.

But, don’t count Dropbox out. If you watch this video (Dropbox Camera UPloads), you’ll see that I empty my dropbox camera upload folder after each transfer, so I never use up all my space.
