About Dropbox

As a pioneer in the cloud service field, Dropbox is favored by over 500 million registered users across 180 countries. Among the users who have Dropbox accounts, one group of users cannot be ignored. They may not use Dropbox to save work files as office workers do, nor do they store study materials or lab reports like students. They use Dropbox to store items that are related to their lives. With Dropbox, they can save precious and interesting photos, family videos, beloved movies and other files to record lovely moments in their life.

However, there are some possible issues that users have to pay attention to when storing photos in Dropbox.

1. A small volume of free storage: Dropbox only offers 2 GB free space for users. So cloud space gets full soon.
2. Limited supported file formats: Dropbox supports limited image and video formats, so it might not perfectly fulfill client demand.
3. No access to edit photos directly: There is no way to edit photos directly unless users grant for other editing tools to edit their pictures.

Dropbox Alternative

To avoid these problems, users try to find a good alternative to save and share photos. Most people might find Google Photos is a wonderful choice. With free unlimited cloud storage, built-in editing function and more supported file formats like .mts, .mtv, .webp, .asf, etc, Google Photos makes up for the shortcomings of Dropbox in terms of storing photos. Moreover, it can automatically organize photos into galleries and its "Enhancement" feature makes photos more perfect.

Since users choose Google Photos as an alternative, here comes a question: how do they move photos from Dropbox to Google Photos without downloading? The following part will introduce a method to help users transfer photos from Dropbox to Google Photos quickly.
