Hi
I am looking for a decent photo sharing app that can be used across Android and iOS.
Both to upload and view photos with large file size.
I was going to use Google photos but seems a bit awkward with multiple users.
Any suggestions please.
Thanks

Moved to a sub-forum (hopefully) more appropriate for your query.





Keep calm, and carry on posting.

Google Photos supports sharing of albums etc, and now has a family pack which you can share your photo storage and pics automatically with family members.

Its got a bunch of missing features like the lack of nested albums, but it's simple to use and kinda just works.

With Google photos if other users want to view or upload do they need the password or can you set limited use ?

I think you need to adjust your thinking or your requirements.

For google photos, I imagine everyone would have their own account and share an album with the others in the group.

If you want something that everyone can upload to one place, you are probably going to have to go for a dropbox type solution.


What is your actual problem you are trying to solve?

Swype on iOS is detrimental to accurate typing. Apologies in advance.

If they are part of you 'family' group then you can create a rule that automatically adds photos into your library:
- all their uploaded photos
- only photos with certain faces detected in them
- none

When sharing your photos with another family member you can share:
- all photos
- all photos taken on or after a particular date
- specific ones

You can then also share any album with anyone via an email link.

My wife and I share my 100GB Google 1 plan ($2.99/month) and I'm using Android and she's get an iPhone. Has just worked great for our recent holiday together. Now I don't have to keep asking her to send me specific pictures she took.

I also import all my pictures from my DSLR in original quality. Haven't been importing the RAWs though but imagine it'll work.

So the challenge I have is.
I am part of a small business setting up a web site.
We do have a Facebook page that the manager looks after.
The manager has his own Google account and I have created a Google account for our photos.
Does the manager have to flick between his business and personal account to make it work ?.

Usually you share the album with people to let them get into it. If they have the account set up on their phone they can also use the gmail, calander and all the other stuff from that google account.
