I probably have between 15,000-20,000 photos currently in Prime. Like We have a Comcast cable internet connection. Like Sounds like you have some upload issues— you may have to try again. Or should I have logged the results and grep the error and I have to write the scripts to upload that failed? As I use a local account, it makes Onedrive useless and uploading gigabytes of data via a web interface would be a nightmare. Individual files will retain their file names, while multiple selections or entire folders will be downloaded as zip files. But here we're again at the edge of moving to next tier.
But all images it manages have to be within its main folder. On top of that it will split backup into 2Gb chunks and you can download each chunk only 5 times. But Amazon has another amazing feature that it hides in plain sight — it allows you to store raw image files in your free allowance. Head over to the web application for that. I always recommend using a local backup, like Time Machine for archives or Super Duper or Carbon Copy Cloner for clones, and a cloud-hosted encrypted backup like CrashPlan, which incorporates redundancy to guard further against loss. If message 2 is the case, it is very misleading. The opinions expressed are those of the writer.
How do you get your expensive Drive Photos into the free Amazon Photos are. This will temporarily remove them from the general folder so someone doesn't see something they weren't supposed to. Well, yes, it is probably going to work if you have a few gigs of data, but with 140+Gb in each account it did not work as advertised. I'm not sure if you would manage them through the main Photos app or the iCloud. On top of that downloads will timeout, you will have to login every 10 or 15 files, and most importantly getting down data is painfully slow. The whole situation is entirely confusing and starting to look as though Amazon are conning people with promises of unlimited photo storage but they end up, with no way out, in the Amazon Drive subscription systems. Note that Mbps megabytes per second is very different from mbps megabits per second — Google has a built-in if you want to calculate.
Note: Amazon drastically altered their photo backup plan in 2017, so this post needs to be updated. More storage for those items, again, can be purchased by annual subscription. Amazon will inform you if the account is still over the quota after the three month period. It looks like a silver rocket ship. My other question is how do my my wife and I keep all family photos in one central location on the iMac? You really saved my life. Moving 250+Gb of images and videos from multiple cloud accounts and physical machines proved to be rather tedious.
Hi N3o -- Welcome to the Amazon Digital and Device Forum! I am sorry this is confusing - if you only want Amazon Photos - you need to make sure you are an Amazon Prime member. With that said, you can immediately start browsing your photos. This includes moving, deleting, downloading and even sharing. Visit the and download the appropriate version for your operating system. It looks like a box with an arrow pointing upward inside of it.
You could use some tool like to map Amazon S3 to a local drive letter on your computer, and then get Picassa to store the photos in that mapped drive letter. All the photos in Amazon Drive showed in Prime Photos. Not if you use iCloud Drive or whatever Apple calls it these days. You can access all your photos on nearly any device and share them with family and friends. The author is a Forbes contributor.
MultCloud also supports adding several accounts from the same provider. So for Google Drive and Dropbox. With other services, you have to make choices. You can select a single picture, or grab a group of them. If the amount you have stored exceeds your available storage limit, you can review available storage plans by going to Hope this helps! I used the name clouddrive when prompted for a name. My wife is not very techy. If you decide to cancel Amazon Prime at one point in time, all images that you have uploaded to the service will count against your storage quota as soon as Prime expires.
It looks like a box with a check mark inside of it. So what happens when you cancel your Prime membership? All my photos are currently stored in Amazon Prime photos. In addition, in this version, I am excluding video files, which count towards the quota. This basic Amazon Photos app, with the above storage, at one time was called Prime Photos. On top of that you can now get Google Drive App for your operating system and download entire folder onto your machine without every touching any files. You can easily share your photo files and folders with others by inviting people, sending a link or sending files to another app.
But if you want to synchronize to Amazon every day, you just have to have your mac automatically run the rclone command every day. And if you were on the fence about going with Amazon Prime, this might be a good reason to go ahead and sign up for it. Again, Amazon Photos is the name of the photos app, as described above. I was able to make use of it as well with my account and while I cannot confirm that it is available worldwide, you may want to try it as well to see if it is the case for you too. Amazon Prime has evolved a lot in recent time. Also, because trust in American based companies is at an all time low at the moment, I think the privacy side of things needs to be cleaned up so that consumers have more privacy protections put in place.
