On your Android smartphone or tablet, look for “Google Photos”. With “Google Photos” you can back up any photos you take and see them online from any device at the “Google Photos” web site. To make this an automated process, do the following:
- Open the “Google Photos” app on your device and tap on the (menu)…
- Tap on “Settings”
- Select “Backup & Sync”
- Toggle “Backup & Sync” to the “on” position. At this point on the selections under “Backup & Sync” you should see your Google (Gmail) account.
- Scroll down to “Upload Size” and select “High Quality” (free unlimited storage).
Note: Google will allow you to upload unlimited images providing you let Google convert the images to the “High Quality” setting. If you select “Original”, you will eat up your online space at Google.
Very easy; and will allow you to see your photos online. You can then, at your convenience, delete the photos on your phone when space becomes an issue.
Note: A Google account is required. Typically, you should already have a Google account when your Android phone was set up for your personal use.
