    "Phototheca is a good way to organize photos and be able to find them quickly. I have a lot of photos on my phone for work and when I want to delete them, it's easy to find out which have been uploaded to the cloud thanks to the simple categories I have set up."

    "One of my favorite online services is Google Drive. It allows you to store and manage your files, especially to keep as a backup. However, it doesn't really manage your photos. For photo organization, Google Photos is the service to use."

    "Dropbox is great for handling files of any type. I've used it to upload and share photos with others. My family and friends can simply log-in to Dropbox, download the files in a batch, and then look them over. Sharing files has never been easier! I can't imagine what I would do without Dropbox, and I think that everyone should give it a try."
