Instead of saving web images to a local place, there must be some distinct benefits of saving them to the cloud which leads you to choose this way. Here are some common ones:

  • Accessibility: Cloud storage lets you access your images from any internet-connected device, allowing viewing and downloading anywhere, anytime.
  • Backup and Recovery: Storing images in the cloud adds backup security. If your device is lost, stolen, or crashes, your images remain safe. Cloud services often include versioning for retrieving older image versions.
  • Sharing: Cloud storage simplifies image sharing. You can create links to share photos or invite collaborators to view or edit your collections, fostering collaboration or sharing memories with others.
  • Syncing: Cloud storage services often provide automatic syncing across devices. Saving an image to the cloud from one device automatically updates it on all linked devices, ensuring your images are always current.
  • Space Saving: Cloud storage saves space on local devices, ideal for those with limited storage or who prioritize space for other files and apps.
