"For the following questions, we will discuss how to backup photos on Android to Cloud."

"I am a photo-taking beast! I take photos pretty much 24/7 and won't stop until my memory is crazy full. I'll admit it does take a bit of space on my Android smartphone, but I just can't help myself. I see something I want to take a photo of and I'll just rush for my phone and take several photos at any given moment.

Course, I end up deleting a lot but I save way more than I delete. In fact, my memory is almost full. But that's another concern for now. I want to focus on making sure I don't lose my information. I heard that there are cloud options here and there but I'm not sure how to go about it. I'm not entirely sure I switched one on just yet but I definitely need some options that should work for pretty much any Android unit. Thanks in advanced!"
