Photos+ Cloud Library 4+
Unlimited photo cloud storage
- Offers In-App Purchases
Photos+ is a cloud based photos library with unlimited storage of your original unmodified photos and videos and powered by your own cloud storage account. You can choose from OneDrive, Google Drive, Dropbox, or any other S3-compatible storage platform.
Use it as a second photo library to separate your precious photos from your main photo library, or use it as your primary photo library, resting assured that your photos are safely stored in your own cloud storage platform.
When used with OneDrive, Google Drive or Dropbox, you’re only limited by the available free storage of your accounts. When used with other S3-compatible storage platforms, there is no limit to the number of photos and videos you can store and with most S3-compatible cloud storage providers, you only pay for the actual storage you use.
• Synchronize / upload on demand.
Photos+ was designed with professional photographers and videographers in mind who may shoot tens of gigabytes of content out on the field on a typical shoot. With our synchronize on demand feature, you can create new albums, select photos and videos for upload, and manage all other aspects of your cloud library while using a minimal amount of mobile network bandwidth while out on a shoot, and then optionally leave the actual heavy lifting of the actual uploading for when you’re back home on WIFI.
• Powerful partner sharing.
Photos+ takes the concept of partner sharing to the limit by allowing you to not only add multiple partners, but to selectively share individual albums or folders with each partner on a per partner basis.
• Automatic image classification.
Just like your built-in photo library, Photos+ automatically categories all your photos using advanced AI image classification so your can quickly search your photos based on tags.
• Location based searches and automatic reverse geocoding.
Photos and videos containing latitude/longitude data are automatically reverse geocoded to their respective cities, counties, countries and named places and become instantly searchable by location.
• The safest cloud storage platforms where you can store your priceless photos and videos.
With Photos+, your photos and videos are safely stored in your own account with the storage platform you configure, so your data it’s also available for direct download from OneDrive, Google Drive, Dropbox, or the S3-compatible storage platform you are using even without the Photos+ app.

Ratings and Reviews
The app has great potential to break the connection between cloud storage and a service running over top of it, in this case photo and video galleries. For it to work for my family I think I need to wait for an android app, and it’s a little light on features, but I can see some nice bones here. Will be keeping an eye on it. A macOS desktop app may help too, to pull down media for importing in to Lightroom Classic. Though I have to consider how expensive that may be at $0.01 per GB.
If anyone else is curious, they create two folders in your bucket, one with originals (original HEIC and MOV files, not exported jpg and mp4), one with optimized previews. Clever IMHO, they’re doing something like NextCloud but distributed where each client does and takes what it needs from “dumb” cloud storage.
It took a bit initial convincing to get my wife, mom, and dad to sign up for this app and share our photos with it instead of using facebook, but now that we’re finally on it, we totally love it! Now we get to share all our photos without having to upload them to facebook and have to deal with all the annoying ads, and not to mention their horrible algorithmic feed where photos appear out of order which drives me crazy. I particularly love how the activity section shows everything in chronological order and in a list format where I can quickly scroll down to see everyone’s new photos, and the dark minimalist theme of this app makes it so much more comfortable to view photos.
Since we installed this, my wife and I hardly share anything to facebook anymore, now we just post the occasional photo on facebook for the distant relatives, but all the more private stuff we never really felt comfortable sharing on facebook to begin with, we now share on this app without worries since its completely private between just us. It’s almost like having our own mini private social network, just for ourselves. The only thing that I think is missing is a commenting feature, though frankly I think I actually like it better where I no longer waste time adding silly comments to photos.
If the app can add photo management (move photos between folders)and allow existing bucket for storj, a bit more intuitive, will definitely give it 5-star
Developer Response ,
This app is not designed to be a s3-compatible storage file browser of your existing buckets. For that there are other apps that are designed to let you browse your existing storage buckets and transfer files.
Photos+ by contrast is a complete Photo Management Library with image AI, geolocation tagging, partner sharing, etc., similar to for example Google Photos or Amazon Photos but one that uses your own s3-compatible account for its storage. As such, it requires that all photos be added through the app and it’s also why it requires selecting an empty new bucket in the initial configuration.
Album move/copy will be added soon.
