Creative professionals know all too well the struggle of having no storage left on a phone, computer, or tablet. If your hard drive is filling up with too many high-resolution files named things like “final_really_v2.jpg” and “seriously_final_reallythistime_v10.png,” you may want to consider moving your photos to the cloud.

Two of the most popular and, in our estimation, best cloud storage options available today are Google Photos and Amazon Photos (also see our list of the best Google Photos alternatives). Since many people are already Amazon or Google users, relying on these companies for cloud photo storage is an easy next step.
