The best alternatives to Google Photos in 2021

Google Photos is one of the most popular Google services, but as of June 1, 2021 it no longer allows unlimited storage of photos and videos. It is therefore necessary to choose the best alternatives to Google Photos.

Then we show you good alternatives for storing personal media files, be they photos and videos of family and friends, so that the user’s memories are protected. We take into account the ease of use and price of the platforms.

1. Google Photos

Platforms: Android, iOS. web version
Prices: from € 1.99 per month – 100 GB

It may seem counterintuitive to see the Google Photos to come first as an alternative to Google Photos. But, we believe it remains the most practical, convenient and reasonably priced solution, in addition to being present in Android smartphones.

The service offers 15 GB free storage – value shared across all Google services. The first upgrade for 100 GB it costs 19.99 euros a year, or 1.99 euros a month, and can be extended up to 2 TB of storage for 99 euros a year.

2. Apple’s iCloud

Apple iCloud

Platforms: Mac, iOS, Web version
Prices: from € 0.99 per month – 50 GB

IPhone users probably already use iCloud, the storage service provided by Apple. The Cupertino company offers 5 GB of space, shared between all devices of the apple, with great integration in the Apple ecosystem.

It is probably the best alternative to Google Photos, especially for iOS users. It allows a good synchronization between smartphone, tablet and computer, but makes it difficult to share the entire online gallery with the family, for example.

3. Flickr


Platforms: Android, iOS, Web version
Prices: from € 5.59 per month – unlimited

Flickr is one of the oldest online photo storage platforms, and is also one of the most professional with advanced features and bonuses for Adobe subscribers. It stands out for its AI tools and the possibility to edit photos online.

Moreover, for photographers and other artists, the images can be disseminated through the worldwide “showcase” of Flickr, which can help the user to gain exposure. They have 1000 photos of free storage, but it is in the Pro plans where the best value resides.

4. OneDrive

Platforms: Android, iOS, Web version
Prices: from € 2.00 per month – 100 GB

Microsoft services like OneDrive are used by millions of professionals worldwide. Therefore, even if it is not a platform created to store photos, if you are already paying for the service, I recommend that you take advantage of it.

Microsoft offers 5 GB of free storage, with several paid plans such as Microsoft 356 Personal, or Microsoft 365 Familiar, as well as plans for companies. It is a mature solution, full of features and very safe.

5. Dropbox

Platforms: Android, iOS, Windows, Mac
Prices: from € 9.99 per month – 2 TB

Dropbox is one of the best alternatives to Google Photos for its fast synchronization between various mobile devices and computers. It was designed to store all types of files – including the user’s photos and videos.

The service offers 2 GB, but it is in the paid plans that we find the best value with professional solutions and personal solutions that start at 9.99 euros per month in the annual charge with 2 TB for a user, or the most expensive family plan.

Alternatively you can create your own server

Own server

It is the opposite of the simplicity of Google Photos and requires specific knowledge, but it can result in a customized solution to meet the specific needs of each user. Technical knowledge and time invested are the biggest cons.

We can also mention the Amazon Photos service as an alternative to Google Photos. It serves the same purpose, but it is not as practical, or known to the UK’s consumer. It is particularly attractive to Amazon Prime subscribers.

Finally, it is also possible to store memories on external disks – physical support, from the simplest memory card to a dedicated NAS. This support, however, may fail and endanger your photos and videos, but it is an option.

Before you go, see how to know the space occupied in Google Photos, to manage the 15 GB free, or even in the paid plans of this service. For more information about changes to this Google service, see our prior coverage.
