Hmmm – google photos and dropbox eh?

Well, If you are taking all your photos with a smartphone, you can simply ask both Google Photos and Dropbox to copy your photos. The dropbox app has a setting called “Camera Uploads” – if you enable that, then Dropbox will get all of your photos. AND, it can sync them to your computer’s hard drive, something Google photos does not do – unless you use Google Drive for that.

Here’s a video I did about using Dropbox for your photos:
