Google Photos is a photo and video storage service in the cloud that has a number of advantages. The platform creates thematic films, identifies people and animals and allows sharing on the albums, like the entire photo library with family and friends. Available for Android and iPhone (iOS) phones, the tool stands out for offering unlimited storage space in the Google cloud, which makes it the best alternative for media backup when changing smartphones or freeing up space on the computer.

WeTransfer is a large file sharing service over the Internet. The platform, which has an intuitive interface and does not require registration, allows you to send up to 2 GB of files for free by email or link. In the free mode, transfers are available for up to a week. It is also possible to share the photos via cell phone, with the application for Android and iOS systems.
Anyone who needs longer shipping times or limits should subscribe to the premium plan, which allows you to determine when the material link will expire and send up to 20 GB in files. In addition, WeTransfer Pro subscribers have a personalized folder on the service server and can password-protect files.
Flickr social network for photo sharing Photo: Divulgao / Flickr
Popular with amateur and professional photographers for mounting portfolios, Flickr is a service that can also be used by ordinary users to share private photos. The simple procedure: when uploading the images, set the privacy to "visible to friends and family". Before that, however, it is necessary to select which profiles of the social network will be included in these categories.
If you want to share the records with people outside of Flickr without exposing the photos publicly on the platform, just set the viewing settings to "private". When sharing the album, choose the option "All photos (public and private)". It is worth remembering that, in 2018, Flickr was sold by Yahoo! Smugmug and reduced the limit of 1 TB free for up to a thousand items per account, including photos and videos of up to three minutes.
Dropbox: service allows sharing private photos and facilitates corporate work Photo: Divulgao / Dropbox
Dropbox is a cloud data hosting service that allows you to concentrate your main files and photos in one place. With a free storage limit of 2 GB, the tool allows you to share folders and individual items through private links. In addition to sharing photos, Dropbox brings a series of attractive functions for those who work or study, such as making comments on files while reading, accessing offline content and downloading torrents remotely.
Smash transmits files without limit of size for free by the browser Photo: Reproduo / Smash
Smash is the ideal alternative for those who want to send heavy photos for free and without having to register for any service. This is because, unlike WeTransfer and its main competitors, Smash does not impose size limits on transfers. In the case of files larger than 2 GB, only the transmission speed is reduced. After uploading the items, the service generates a link that can be forwarded by email or copied to be sent via WhatsApp and social networks.
