Amazon Drive

Amazon DriveAmazon has released an official application for storing photos, which is interesting, although such an experience of the online store is not new. We are offered backup and photo sharing.

Main functions:

  • Secure backup for three months;
  • Autosave of photos;
  • Built-in store and slideshow;
  • Ability to share photos through social networks;
  • Print pictures directly from the application.

Amazon Photos requires mandatory registration, that is, it is not possible to quickly enter using social networks. However, if you have an Amazon account, then you will enter the service without any problems.

We would advise not to start autoloading at once and configure folders because by default the application collects all the images from the device. At the same time, there is an automatic sorting by the date of adding, which, of course, pleases. You can create an album on the disc directly from the program. A batch upload with a selection of individual images is implemented. Directly from Amazon Photos, it is possible to organize a pretty nice slideshow with automatic scaling.

You can edit the photos before uploading. The following tools are available – filters and effects, frames, stickers, a fairly convenient cropping is implemented, focusing, as well as color adjustment. You can share your photos through social networks, sending a link to a friend on an album or a specific photo. Amazon Photos is a great replacement for Google Photo.

QuickPic does not require any registration but immediately transfers us to its main screen. When viewing, you can enable maximum brightness, scale with one click and set the chess background. By the way, there is also protection of pictures with a graphical password, which we didn’t observe in other galleries. In this case, you can hide some folders and assign a separate password to the cloud storage.

A slideshow can be with different animations, you can select an interval, random order, panorama, and zoom. Settings in QuickPic will please. Thanks to them, you can easily and flexibly manage the program, activate third-party services, customize the appearance. In general, to work with the photo gallery is full. Just note the smart search of the program, that is, the application itself tells you what you are looking for. As a rule, these are the last added pictures. In this case, all the photos are divided into events.

Not without editing, but it is primitive. So, it is possible to change the resolution of the picture, there is cropping, rotating the photo, as well as a horizontal and vertical mirror image. If you don’t like this photo editor, you can use your own. QuickPic seamlessly integrates with third-party solutions. There are other tools as well – copying, deleting, detailed information, geo-marks, slideshow and the ability to move or copy to a specific place.

QuickPic will suit any user, as it allows you to easily catalog photos and store them both in the cloud and locally. Of the shortcomings – it is not the best editor, but it is suitable for most operations with pictures. Moreover, nobody prevents using third-party applications for this.

toolwiz photosIf you do not expect much from the gallery, but it should be attractive and have useful functions, it’s worth looking at ToolWiz Photos. The program is very simple, even utilitarian, but it got a couple of unusual and interesting functions.

Immediately after the launch of ToolWiz Photos, we find ourselves in a minimalistic menu, made in white. Then you can see the albums with photos and the search button, go to the camera, sort the content and settings. Actually, there is nothing more in the main menu. It is noteworthy that even such a simple gallery, as ToolWiz Photos, contains a good photo editor. In addition to classic functions, such as adding stickers, drawing, cropping, rotating, etc., there is a color correction.

What does this gallery offer and why did it come to the review? And it is here due to its simplicity and additional functions. On the main screen, there is a button with parameters, which should be pressed. It will give us access to a private album, which is encrypted with a four-digit password, deleted photos, beautiful photo collages and other functions.

FOTO Gallery

foto galleryGallery, what should it be? It’s time to take a look at one more application for viewing photos and video – Foto Gallery. Albums look typical, photos are arranged in three columns, regardless of the grid in the menu. And files are sorted, both by date and by creation date. For convenience, we can “enable” the display of the date of creation of each photo.

When viewing the photo, we see the picture itself, as well as its name, the date of creation and other functions. Naturally, any photo can be quickly printed, copied, renamed, set as a background. There is a function of a slide show, but it is not performed in the best way, because it simply simulates flipping. It is clear that this is a simple gallery, but there isn’t even an elementary editor in it.

At first glance, Foto Gallery is a typical representative of the “gallery” program. It looks good and is quite convenient. The application also boasts a lack of advertising, even in a free version, which we really liked.

Cloud Gallery

Cloud GalleryCloud Gallery is a very small and simple application that is equipped with only a couple of functions – viewing photos and synchronizing with the cloud.

Cloud Gallery benefits:

  • Places to view and group the exact location where you took a photo;
  • Always updated product design;
  • Make a list of thousands of photos in a jiffy, find new photos instantly;
  • Fully integrated with the G Cloud backup application to copy all your photos and videos to the cloud;
  • View your photos and videos;
  • Share in social networks with ease;
  • View all at once, only photos, only videos, favorites, by tag or by location;
  • Optimized for large screens, for example, tablets;
  • View all photos saved in the cloud.

The main screen of the application is presented in the form of albums with different content. There is only one variation of the display of photos and videos, as well as their sorting – two columns on the smartphone. Separately, you can view photos, videos, favorites, as well as photos by location and with tags. As for the cloud storage, it is quite convenient, functional and free.

The menu is pretty enough, we can immediately add a tag to the picture, share it and put “like”. And if you visit the menu, you can still delete, rotate, print and view details about the image. Everything, in principle, is good, but Cloud Gallery does not support landscape orientation. That’s the real problem.

Cloud Gallery is an easy, stylish and very interesting gallery. It allows you to view pictures, and as an add-on, we can synchronize files with the cloud service and set a graphical password. In principle, nothing more is needed. From the shortcomings of the application, we note the lack of support for landscape orientation and contextual advertising.
