Dropbox is my favourite cloud storage option because it’s easily accessible from most devices – and it’s just as easy to use whether you’re on a Mac or PC.
Once you sign up for a free account, download the free app to your smartphone (you can text yourself the Dropbox app link from this page). Once you’ve download the app and logged in, you will get this prompt:
Select ‘OK‘, as this gives Dropbox permission to share your photos when you ask it to.
After that, it’s just a matter of selecting which photos you want to upload and share, and then click ‘Next.’ From here it will give you the option to upload the selected images to a folder. You can put them in an existing folder or create a new one.
Once your images are loaded into Dropbox, you can share them one of two ways:
- share the image or the folder, or
- you can ask Dropbox to create a link to the image or folder and send it in a text, email, or through Facebook. If you’re on a tight data plan on your smartphone, I’d recommend sharing the link instead of sending individual images or an entire folder.
Once your image / folder / link is shared, your friends and family can download the images.
