Sync includes new photos, changed metadata, edited photos, and deletion. However, while Amazon makes it easy to import them, they make it practically impossible to export if you have a lot of photos uploaded!!! However, much has changed, including its name it used to be Amazon Cloud Drive , and with little fanfare the service has become much better. Unfortunately, Amazon Drive stumbles out of the gate by failing to encrypt user data at-rest on its servers. Also, as the article said there is an app for your phone that will automatically back up your photos. Amazon Prime Photos I have Amazon Prime for our house which means I get their Prime Photos option included. You can either upload an individual file or an entire folder.
It does not, by default, automatically apply the directory names you may have already applied to your photo storage system. Two-factor credentials prevent a from letting someone else login into your account. Amazon has since corrected that problem and now uses the same sync-folder model popularized by Dropbox. I have tried clearing the cache I have tried signing in and signing out I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling the application please tell me what to do I need to fix this it - - needs to upload automatically thank you Same problem here after receiving an Android system update. Same with some of the photos functions on a Fire. At least their sync process actually works! It will simply tell Prime Photos to use those directories as album names the photos will still be in the main dashboard view organized by date. We recommend you leave this as the default for now.
When I noticed I already had tens of thousands of copies of some files. At least now I moved them all to subfolder. Please leave your comments below and thanks for reading. You can also view photos and watch videos. Here are our results: Test 1: Test 2: Average: Upload: 15:50 16:50 16:20 Download: 2:10 1:50 2:00 Around fifteen minutes per gigabyte is about where we like to see uploads, while two minutes for downloads is a bit faster than average. 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.
For example, we sent Amazon customer support an email asking multiple questions about block-level sync, encryption protocols and other technical questions. For me, disabling the app freed up 1. I try to stay platform agnostic this way if I jump back to Android I can pick up right where I left off; That leaves iCloud out as a permanent solution.

To protect your data plan, videos can only be uploaded from your device when you're connected to Wi-Fi. You can use your phone during this time but it may take awhile until you see all your pictures.

How close was your choice to switch to Amazon? Face detection, tagging, geolocation, and automatically generated albums are all server-side. I read that I was getting 5gigs free. You'll then see options to enable or disable Auto-Save for photos, videos, or both and choose your preferred network settings for uploading. Amazon cloud drive is a scam as far as I am concerned. This is not deleting your photos and videos. I really do not recommend, invest a little more money in a better service.
Faces also do not sync across iCloud. When it does work the facial recognition is uncannily good, it picked up pictures of my son from when he was a few hours old to 16 years without any training! Now, what is it you want to do? The newly added photos were at the very bottom because they were undated. But I later discovered that this was only true if you subscribe to Amazon Prime. I wanted to test each solution with a good chunk of my photo library uploaded which made this a time-consuming experience. Its annoying to have so many duplicates in my cloud storage and makes it cumbersome to work with my photo collection. If you upload your Apple Photos library it knows how to pick out the originals only.
Codehead9 - Re Auto-Save, specifically on a Fire There are some older posts - like 4 months old - above about phones but they might not be helpful now , try this link to a discussion on a related matter and go to the bottom of that page to a post by Pirate about how to turn it off and one by me about what's going to happen, and not happen, if you do.

I can't seem to get rid of them. Check any folder from your list of Amazon Drive folders that you wish to have represented in Prime Photos as an album.
This basic Amazon Photos app, with the above storage, at one time was called Prime Photos. I love how every edit is retained so you can always access the original photo. You can also download the Windows or Mac desktop versions from the. Today I opened the 'Prime Photos' application on my Iphone 6s+ and the application decided it needed to send all 3000 of my photos up to the cloud again. Manual Upload: Drag, Drop, and Done Manual upload is a great place to start, because to get there, you have to log into our Amazon Prime Photos control panel and become familiar with the service.
The rest of the apps each have good and bad. Check the status of your wireless connection. The app also allows you convert the names of the folders into album names, which is especially handy. Furthermore, it just makes good sense to actively backup your smartphone photos—your phone is far more likely to get broken, lost, stolen, or dropped in a lake than your computer. In the Manage Folders section of Settings in the Amazon Photos App the folders showed numbers of pictures - before they all showed zero. I called Customer Service and a great specialist explained basically what Jess O said in post 2 above. However, upload speeds are horrendous… Amazon definitely throttles uploads.
