We receive this app through Amazon prime. It’s great for our photos. However, we need more memory for videos. That is why I rated it 4 stars instead of 5.

Amazon photos review
by Andre Bolla on 2020/12/02 04:13
The app takes a long time to upload the photos and the videos is also annoying to try to add your photos to your fire stick for a picture portfolio , and the servers seem to be very slow for Seattle Washington. Why? My thoughts, and grievances. In my opinion United States is going backwards as far as the technology infrastructure and maintenance is concerned I wish they would stop hiding the Cash overseas and put it back in America.

by robertalovingpix on 2020/12/02 02:42
Too soon to tell as it is Very very very slow at backing up photos. I’m full on icloud so was hoping Amazon will replace it. However it is taking such a long time. I haven’t had a chance to see how it will work. I’m hoping it will be able to organize photos including locations and dates taken with edit options.

Amazon photos has free unlimited photo storage for Prime members so when I filled up the 2tb storage max on my Apple cloud, I started using Amazon photos thinking it was a temporary solution until I bought some type of external storage but have since decided it will now be my main storage. I dreaded using a new app but it turned out Amazon photos could not be easier to use and I especially love the flexibility to manually organize my photos!!!! For a heavy user like me- the unlimited photo storage and an ap that I really like is amazing! (The cost of additional storage for my videos that go over & above the video storage limit is incredibly low too). I highly recommend Amazon Photos!
Fails at the essentials
by mveras1972 on 2020/12/01 22:13
I really want this app to work for me because Google is tightening their belt and will no longer be unlimited photos. However, if Amazon doesn’t get their act together, this app won’t work for me. First it would not show any of my pictures, but somehow if I searched I found a few even though it said it had uploaded all photos from my iPhone. I uninstalled and reinstalled the app to no avail. The only thing that worked was to sign out and sign back in. Clearing the cache didn’t work. But then I have new pictures and somehow the app refuses to back them up. This doesn’t look good. Google Photos runs circles around this. It’s basically set it and forget it. I never needed to worry about my photos were being uploaded to Google. It just worked. With this, it’s hit or miss and no rhyme or reason why it doesn’t upload photos automatically. Please fix these fundamental issues, otherwise this is worthless and I will have to look elsewhere.
Nice place for all phots
by Chaos739 on 2020/12/01 20:40
Great app only change I would make is a delay on how fast it syncs. There are some trash photos that end up on the app even though I deleted them on the phone.

by allaababyy on 2020/09/20 04:52
Such an amazing app!!! Only cons i can even think of which I really shouldn’t consider cons, but I’ll mention them anyways is I wish I could have THE OPTION to sort my photos the way they are in the photos app that comes with the iPhone and the fact that there is no like premade albums for your photos and then one specifically for your videos and then just a separate one for them both, which is what they have now, them combined. I get that you can make your own albums and do that yourself but that takes time..... especially when you have a ton of photos!! But ya if it could have the option -just like the iPhone photos app again.... haha but yeah this app saves me soooo much storage!!! Especially if you have a prime account! It would also be amazing if they could add a feature to help you delete any duplicates of photos, I know they’ll tell you if you’ve already uploaded a specific photo onto the app already if you’re trying to re-upload it by accident or whatever, but sometimes the same picture gets uploaded by a different phone.
What a great thing.
by Jinni9141 on 2019/12/27 01:27
I am in my 70s and realized that I had so many online photos between my phone, computer and tablet and I knew I should move them to a flash drive or something for my family but dreaded how long it was going to take me. Then I learned about this program. It is so easy because it does all the work. You don’t have to sit there saving pictures from one source to another. I told it to save the pictures that were on my tablet and within minutes it saved over 1000 pictures while I watched a movie. It adds any new pictures you take them automatically and you can edit pictures you have duplicates of etc. I think you’ll love it.
Good when it works.
by Black1304 on 2020/09/27 08:01
When it works correctly, this app is great. After I sign it, it usually works for 3 or 4 days, then will be stuck "checking" for x-amount of pictures, never loads them and then I either have to sign out and sign back in or delete the app and download it again. Then when I login, it's stuck on the login page for about 12 hours, then is on a blank white page for about 12 hours, then everything is fine and it works for a few days before I have to repeat the process again. I have some photos that it has never backed up and it apparently never will because even when I tell it to upload them, it gets stuck and they still never backup. But... for free... and unlimited storage... I can't be too mad. Update: the app has been working amazingly well, until iOS 14. Now every time I open the app it gives me the login screen, but I have to log out first or nothing happens. When I login, it acts like the first time I’ve ever used the app and tries to upload everything from my Photos. I have to reset my settings the way I want them and delete a bunch of pictures that have uploaded and been deleted previously.
Great app. Needs a couple of changes though...
by WoodyKib2000 on 2019/06/03 23:32
In albums there should be a feature where you can change your most recent uploaded pictures to be at the top on the album. It used to be this way. It has changed. Now all my recent pictures are at the bottom in the albums I’ve created and its a pain to scroll down 200 pics all the way to the bottom to see if I added it to the album. Please change this feature or at least add a feature for date taken or uploaded within the albums created. I know there is a feature like this under all the pictures taken but not in the albums. Please add this feature. Also, I’ve noticed when I add an article that I have screen shotted with my phone and add it to my albums of saved articles, it uploads in the album backwards. I get the last page of the article 1st in the album instead of last. The first page is at the bottom, not at the top. This feature definitely needs to be changed.
Love this - Please add multi-select option!!
by CiaraSebecke on 2019/12/28 19:16
As a photographer I love that this allows me to store high quality RAW files from the camera without having to pay for expensive cloud storage outside of my Prime membership!! Really awesome as other services do not store the full quality images. I also love the faces features and ability to search by what’s in the picture. I edit most of my photos on iPad so its great as I can just import them from camera and back them up here and my hard drive. There is ONE THING that is super annoying and should be fixed- the ability to multi select or select all. I dont want to back up every single item in my photos just the RAW photos and edited versions. So I have to manually select each photo which is so many when I do a shoot with 400 images for example. If I could hold and drag to multi-select or create albums in iPhone photos and choose “select all” it would make using this app a million times easier.
Still have to use iCloud
by Yuls24 on 2018/05/25 07:32
* Review updated I started using the app after several days which were necessary to upload all the photos from my phone. There are definitely nice features. I like that the app offers you to look at the pics that were taken on the same day previous years. My biggest disappointment, however, is that the app backs up pictures as soon as they are taken (if wi-fi is available) and doesn’t update them if they are being edited. I take quite a few pics a day and, at the end of it, I edit the best of them. If they were baked up some time earlier in the day, they remain unchanged. I was hoping that Prime Photo could be a free (well, I pay for prime either way) substitute of iCloud, but, unfortunately, it can’t. As soon as I get a new phone, am I supposed to edit a couple thousand pics again?! *** I haven’t really started using the app yet, but I’m already frustrated. I have lots of pictures on my phone - around 8 thousand. I know it takes time to copy/back them up, but not that much! The app was running a few hours at night and several hours in the morning, it managed to back up only a half! My phone barely works when it’s running and they want you to keep the app open for it to work faster which means I can’t use my phone at all. I stopped myself from deleting the app several times already. I hope in a few days it’s gonna download all the pics so I could finally check out all the features.
Solid mediocrity
by stclair77 on 2019/09/23 14:39
So far, it is difficult for me to properly rate the app. I have been trying to back my photos up for a couple of days. I have just over 12,000. I left the app open overnight last night and woke up with 491 photos remaining to back up. I needed to send a quick text message, so I switched over to messaging, sent my message and promptly returned to the photo app. The count went back up to over 12,000 and the app now is “checking for backup”, counting down in the same fashion as when I started the process last night. As an added service to something I already pay for (Prime), it’s tough to complain but it isn’t doing what I need it to yet, so I need to maintain middle ground until I have some indication that it will ever back up my photos. It doesn’t do any background uploading, wifi or not, and I can’t just leave the app open all day. Each time I go back into it now, it starts over.
Only a few minutes and bugs are showing
by Jsanch224 on 2020/06/14 21:41
I’ve only use the app literally like 15 minutes and I am so furious with this app. You’d think something with great ratings will be good but I am so disappointed. Let me tell you why. 1st as I was trying to upload photo for my Echo Show, the app decided it had to notify me through mid selection that it needed to update.. I lost my progress of selecting 30 photos.. okay no biggie I can reselect it. After it did what it did, I tried to reselect the same photo.. well where is the upload section? It’s hidden in settings.. why is this the location for such an important function? I had to google where it was FYI. Upon finding the upload section, I can’t access my favorites... at this point I’m starting to pull my hair. Desperately trying to get my favorites folder to show up, I close the app, delete some folders in my photos app, and kept trying to find a solution. To my surprise.. nothing worked. At this point I am desperate to add photos to my echo show because I have a party to host.. so here I am selecting photos with over 11k photos without a way to narrow it down... But the last thing, the very last thing that is making me frustrated.. is how much the scrolling jumps.. I’d be scrolling then all the sudden it jumps all the way down near below the center of photos.. this happened at least 4 times, until I need to write this review. I’m done with this app. Complete disappointment. ughhh I am so frustrated..
Impressive App; Needs 1 fix
by SushiCamiChar on 2018/02/07 14:16
One thing would make this a 5 star review: Would love it if the picture was removed from the main photos page when you add it to an album. OR at least, the app needs to clearly show if the picture has been added to an album. Currently, there is no way to know which pictures I have placed in albums. This is very annoying when you have a thousand pictures to organize. Otherwise, love the unlimited storage of the ORIGINAL PICTURE SIZE with Prime membership!!! It’s TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE! I’m just waiting for them to take that away (please don’t take it away). Was using paid Dropbox, but I don’t have enough room to upload at original pic size (although Dropbox gives you a lot of storage, pictures are large!). This is a wonderful membership perk and well worth it!
Hard to complain when it’s free
by Bjc1234 on 2018/01/06 20:06
I shoot a lot of pictures so I need a lot of back up space. The unlimited space provided by this app provides an additional piece of mind for all my shots. The interface is a bit clunky and is a major memory hog. The other issue I have encountered is that it is no longer recognizing my canon raw files after processing them through Lightroom (CR2 files). The problem just started in the last month so I am not sure the issue. However this would be a major negative if it can’t store canon raw files. It’s by no means perfect. The information and instruction on use is lacking which in my case lead to a major error. In one case, I eliminated a folder on prime, only to discover that that action also deleted the original file on the hard drive. Luckily I had the raw files still on the memory card. In summary, if you are a prime member, you should absolutely use it. It’s another way to back up your pics at no cost. However if I had to pay for the service, I don’t think I would, at least not with current functionality. In conclusion, I feel like an ingrate complaining about a free service that I am using! From a value perspective, I rate it 4 out of 5.
Comvenient And Easy To Use
by Casual skeptic on 2019/12/15 13:05
I use prime photos to back up all my photos from all devices. This app makes it easy to view my whole library from my phone or iPad. It is also very simple to upload photos directly from my devices. Several years ago there was a sync function on the app version of prime photos that could make it easy to accidentally delete pictures from prime photos when you deleted them from your phone. That sync feature, as far as i can tell, has been removed from the app, so you can use prime as a simple backup rather than a mirrored drive like iCloud or 365. The sync version still exists when accessing prime photos through your browser, such as you would on your computer, but even there i turned it off.
Great app til recent update, keep accidentally adding favorites to whole albums as I make an album
by Crazy71234 on 2019/08/03 21:23
I really love your app except two things...one is a long-standing complaint, that exif info including time&date&location, does download with pictures. The second is a new development since recent update. The “add to favorites” is right above the “add to album” tab. I’ve been careful only to hit add to album, and for some reason, it makes the whole album “add to favorites” and I can’t figure out how to remove that designation for one photo, let along a newly created album that has over 1,000 photos&videos...also, why isn’t the “add to album” on the top but you put it on the bottom? I don’t know who designed this specific change, but it’s not user friendly, especially it adding yo favorites when I’ve been careful to ensure I hit only “add to albums”. Please fix.
storage could've improved since the photobucket days
by LunaVolt on 2019/08/08 18:03
k Its been real helpful so im sharing my thoughts, Ive been moving plenty since I was 15 y/o and I tried to keep storing on different platforms, and still the softwares seem to not take in account that is really thin percentage of world population that can afford the devices and web speed that u need to navigate all the options for this function of the internet(storage) desides thst. yeah it is a tiny bit less frustrating than apple and clud n so on. also remember that if you get account canceled ull lose ur stuff, but u can share a family vault so u got a backup and also two account with prime so u do get a sorta sense of privacy wich is pretty good. so yeah four stars.
Best cloud app
by Jaii7875 on 2018/01/15 00:52
That’s a true statement, let me tell you why. All the other photo clouds tell you that they saving us disk space by backing up our photos and saving them all in their clouds. Not true! They copy our photos , but when we erase our original photos from our devices they also get deleted from the clouds. They are not supposed to be just copying our photos, they are supposed to be saving them after we delete them from our devices. Otherwise where are we saving any space on our devices? This is the only one that I found that actually lets you delete photos from your devices and safely saves your originals. Therefore actually freeing up our disk space. Great app!
A great alternative for extra storage
by Kricket35077 on 2018/09/27 21:31
With a prime membership this app is included, it has lots of storage space, but lacks in keeping up with recent photos. I have my photos in this app to scroll across my tv screen as a screen saver and I have seen photos pop up that I do not have anymore and had forgotten all about, they are very random. In which it is nice to see surprise photos but I’m more concerned with recent photos I have taken and they are there floating around in space somewhere. It is good to have for a extra backup, especially when my iPhone is constantly telling me to pay more for storage, not this gal, I will use other apps to save my photos that I can access anytime similar to this app. All in all I would recommend it
Love this App
by treugnhipe on 2020/01/11 02:25
I love the ease of use, the features offered have wonderful quality and as above are again easy and fun. I like that it backs up when you open it...and theirs so many ways to organize photos and videos and many options of what to do with them. Size of storage is reasonable and I have so many gigabytes of media not even close to maximum and I’m in the double digits. I do wish that when you’re uploading a lot of photos and such that you could do other things. Apparently you have to leave the application open for uploading. But the WONDERFUL QUALITIES of the app make up for it undoubtedly. I love this app and DEFINITELY RECOMMEND IT TO ANYONE WHO LOVES PHOTOS AND VIDEOS AND NEEDS A NO FUSS PLACE TO STORE THEM!!! Kid friendly...
Essential features missing
by Elwood_37 on 2017/11/04 20:33
This is almost a great program. However, it falls short in a number of crucial ways. Firstly, there is no way to correct the many mistakes the facial recognition software makes. When it fails to recognize that an image contains a person, I can’t manually tag it. What’s worse, it frequently misidentifies two or three people as being the same person, and there’s no way to manually disambiguate. This is an essential function that must be added, and which competitor programs already have. Frustratingly, the facial recognition 'People' folders index only the photos uploaded by your own account. They leave out all the photos of the same people in the family vault. So it’s not a very useful compilation of all the photos of somebody. Thirdly, while this app allows manual album creation, your albums are stored only on your own account, and are not visible to anyone you add to your family vault. It’d be a huge bonus to be able to share albums with your family members. I’d also really appreciate being able to rotate a photo right in my account, without having to download it to my device, rotate it in a separate program, and re-upload it to prime photo all over again. With a few fixes, this can be an excellent photo storage program.
This app saved my life!
by gb-dave-in-or on 2020/09/27 16:23
Ok, not literally, however, I had tried and failed with other options like iCloud, portable storage drives, and external flash drives. The first costs money, and could not handle multiple users, the second did not work with my phone, and the third died and may or may not be recoverable. Get this app before your current phone dies and takes your photos with it! Video storage is limited, but if you take lots of videos, you can pay to upgrade to a bigger plan. I think about the people who have lost everything in the recent wildfires. If they had this app, at least they would be able to reprint family photos later.
Good, but needs work,
by FoodForThought! on 2019/01/13 16:40
Overall, this is a pretty good photo app for those looking for an alternative photo App, which also contains decent editing and storage features. It does have annoying aspects to it as well, such as not being able to default to a selected Album, nor the ability to lock individual Albums. (Unless all pics are placed in the Hidden Photos section, which somewhat defeats the purpose) A few annoying bugs when it comes to storage or organization. E.g..Pics selected as Album covers are lost the moment you move new photos into that particular albums. Tech support is a little disappointing. Quick to respond, however not quite attentive to questions, issues or problem solving. Kinda felt like Robo Support. My suggestion would be to try before you buy!
BEST app to backup photos!
by Tvasilik on 2020/05/18 07:34
This is the best app I’ve ever used to backup my photos. I take about 10-20 pictures every single time I’m taking a photo. I also take tons of worthless screenshots. By using this app to backup my photos I’m able to keep every single one archived and then keep my photo library on my iPhone cleared out. The initial backup took about a day. I had 31,000 pictures. Excessive I know! But now it takes only a minute per day to backup the new stuff. Love love love! I hate backing up with iCloud and tech support suggested google photos as an alternative. I hated that app. It also doesn’t keep the pictures full resolution. Try this out, you won’t be disappointed!
No worry no cost photo archive
by Obsessive Consultive on 2020/03/29 16:31
I’m a hoarder. A digital hoarder. I have files from the early days of DOS I don’t throw out. So pictures yeah I have a few. A few thousand. I have filled up 3- 20 Tb drives-yes terabyte. Don’t judge me. I keep seagate paying those fat dividends. So the idea of being able to archive all my photos in the cloud for free-I’m in. Easy and mostly automatic uploads. Easy to browse. Kind of fun blasts from the past. As I am still not over the loss of thousands of pictures from an accidental repartition if a 20TB vault a year ago ( deep deep sob) this is a balm on my damaged psyche. Privacy? Over rated. If somebody wants to browse my dogs and trips to Europe and secret prototype robots ( ok not the robots) then it’s fine.
Easy to use, but lacking some features
by Sir3nsong on 2018/11/18 16:31
I really appreciate the ability to easily backup my photos. I also like the idea of it recognizing people; however that feature definitely needs work. The app routinely ‘recognizes’ non-facial things as people. If I go in manually and remove whatever name it has attributed it to, it simply chooses another person. There really needs to be a way to tell it that isn’t a person. I would also love a way to categorize photos by subject matter (places, pets, etc), so I could easily find a photo I was looking for. Most other apps I’ve used have these abilities. All that being said, I can’t complain too much, as it’s unlimited photo storage and comes included with Prime.
Needs some work.
by gpelican58 on 2018/09/22 17:31
I like the program overall so don’t get me wrong. I like that it can recognize faces and place those photos under the correct person you have named. The problem is that every once in a while it places the wrong photo under the wrong person. That in itself is not the issue as no software is full-proof in this regard and it is to be expected. The issue stems from the fact that that once this happens, you have NO way of moving that photo to the appropriate person’s folder and can be quite frustrating. If I’m missing something here, I would appreciate some hints on how to correct but till then that flaws appears to be this app’s Achilles heel. I would have given it a higher rating to be sure if not for this serious shortcoming!
App times out often ...
by Wealth Creation on 2017/11/28 17:08
I wasn’t even aware that I had this feature from Prime which is a cost saver & bonus. I use an iPhone that really needed more space so I just wanted to store them easily rather that purchase additional cloud space. This task became so laborious. My app timed out several times. It really could not cope with uploading, verifying & deleting more than 50 pics at a time. I went to bed leaving it to upload only to become more confused as to which pictures I could delete off iPhone🙁. I’m still doing it 3 weeks later because it keeps timing out. So now I have to keep going back & forth between app & pics b4 deleting. As one reviewer commented “it’s FREE”. Oh, I forgot, the above comments does not include uploading videos. I am too scared to start if pics took so long.
Really really great photo storage but...
by emyopdx on 2017/10/04 00:16
This app works wonderfully 90% of the time. Open it up, it automatically scans phone and saves all photos and videos, then you have great access to your entire library wherever you go! However every once in awhile it will get stuck. Like really really stuck. Will need to delete app and re-download. This is an excruciating process because then it needs to scan the whole photo library again. Another issue is it will "miss" videos (usually not photos) in the auto scan that you will have to manually upload. Overall I love the ease and functionality. My husband and I log onto the same account and can see all our pics in one place.
Keeps all your photos safe
by DeeQb on 2019/08/08 23:31
This app keeps all your photos safe by uploading them to the cloud so that if your device is lost or destroyed, you won’t lose them. Your photos are available through the app at any time you have connectivity, so you can access ALL your photos from your phone at any time without using up your storage space. My favorite features are the automatic upload from both my phone and desktop, and the ability to search by person, subject (like “dogs”) or date. I would like for it to be easier to save a set of pictures to a folder or album on my device
GOOD BUT NOT THE GREATEST
by ALGP081613 on 2020/01/10 22:45
decent quality prints . . . invites arrived a day earlier than expected, but overnight delivery cost nearly 1/2 the cost of the purchased product, and the difference of one day made ALL of the difference without knowing what time to expect the delivery . . . I wasn’t particularly thrilled that the invites were only sold by increments of 25, and disappointed that I was short shipped [received fewer than 25] upon arrival. The convenience of the service seemed attractive to me when I started the project, but I think I expected the turn around to be a little faster since I took care of the “type-setting.” I would use the service again but do realize that I would need to start any project well in advance . . . with the understanding that card designs and layouts are limited . . .
Great app
by bob423 on 2017/12/24 13:22
I have all my photos stored in the cloud with this app. It syncs without a problem with my desktop and I can access all the photos with any device - very handy. Recognition of faces and objects is is a key feature for organizing photos and for finding that one photo you’re looking for. Only one thing is missing - file structure. The folders need to be organized to replicate the file folders on the PC. There needs to be folders and sub-folders. Otherwise it’s hard to find the one folder labeled, “cropped” when it could be a subfolder of Bob or Tom or Vacation, e.g. All the “cropped” folders are bunched together and you can’t tell them apart without looking. Fix that and it’s a 5 star product!!
Love it!
by D-n-V on 2019/07/17 09:48
Amazon/Prime photos is fantastic! It’s unlimited photo storage with customizable settings. I have my account set to automatically sync every time I open the app while on Wi-Fi. Pictures sync on all of my devices, as well as my wife’s, allowing us to retrieve photos anywhere there is Wi-Fi connection. This includes viewing them on TV (smart TV). This also allows me to share with other family members. Although video storage is not unlimited, the space is still significant enough for us to record our childrens middle school/high school concerts and send & share with family living out of state.
Not Quite There
by Nurse that Sings on 2018/08/11 13:59
You have so many well-written reviews by people that value this app, but also have valuable suggestions as to how to make it better. Have you paid attention to your customers and taken note of their critiques? Many of them have already mentioned things I would change and those reviews are from months ago. Right now, my biggest issue is the time it takes to download my photos. I will keep using it because the storage is free with prime. I would suggest listening to your customers in order to make this a better app and you might actually get more customers that don’t just use it because it’s free with prime. 🤷🏼‍♀️ Just sayin’.
Almost Perfect Photo App
by morfit on 2018/01/23 15:34
Great value all around for Prime Members. Two problems keep it from being my go to photos app (Google photos still has it beat unfortunately) 1) It needs to work in the background to auto upload photos...don’t understand why it can’t because Google photos does perfectly 2) In order to make Family Vault work we need to absolutely be able to see each other’s people tags and places otherwise it is half a solution (or at least make that an option to check off if privacy is a concern). Right now only I can see the people tags for my photos and wife can only see hers in our own accounts and not in the Family Vault.
Life saver
by Taintedheart on 2020/04/15 07:03
I love having the ability to share with family, having everyone’s first grandchildren and twins. I was always having to send so many texts and emails. Now I can send out one group texts to check the app. Family can buy their own prints or whatever other custom item they want. They one reason I would give it four stars and not five would be, my husband and I share the same account so that we have each other’s pics and their is some lag on my iPhone vs his Samsun. He can instantly see my downloads but it takes a bit longer for me to see on my phone his adds even though if I go on his phone I can clearly see them their.
Love this app
by so so traveler on 2020/09/27 12:46
I love that I can download all my photos with this app. I didn’t want to have to pay an extra fee to have additional cloud backup on my phone and since I have Prime this allowed me to take as many pictures and videos as I wanted with my phone and then back them up thus allowing me to delete off my phone and start all over again the next day! This served me well during a 28 day motorcycle adventure in 13 states!! No more messages about not being able to take pictures because my phone storage was full and I can access them any time.
Lightroom Doesn’t Recognize iPhone photos in Prime
by User8K! on 2018/01/08 18:25
After I turned on Prime Photos on my phone, I connected my iPhone to my computer and tried to import my photos into Lightroom. Lightroom did not recognize any of the photos for import that had copies saved in Prime Photos. It was like my phone was empty, even though my photos still show on my phone. So, while Prime Photos sounds like a great idea for cloud storage, it will screw up any photographer’s workflow who uses Lightroom. Now I’m trying to find instructions for downloading my photos from Prime to my computer, so I can import them in Lightroom. All kinds of tips on putting photos into Prime, but still looking for how to retrieve the full res copies. That should be a basic function of cloud storage: retrieving your photos from the cloud.
Excellent - now works with Live Photo’s, too
by David in LA on 2018/02/27 23:43
This is an excellent way to back up your iPhone photos, which will otherwise quickly eat up your 5GB cap on free iCloud storage. I suggest setting automatic backup of pictures BUT NOT videos, as videos count against your 5 GB cap on free storage. Not so your still pictures, or even Live Photo’s! Save individual videos to Prime Photos to manage that 5GB cap. Back up is not automatic; you have to have the Prime Photo app active on your phone, and “Auto-Save” enabled in settings, for the backup to take place. Again, in settings, I suggest you keep the “Videos” switch (for auto-save) set to off. Photos can easily be moved to an album and filtered by date; the date of a photo (say, that you download from something someone else posted) can be edited to match the date of the event. The only major feature missing is the ability to add a short caption to a specific photo in your collection or album.
Unable to move complete folders to app
by Lovelyreading11135 on 2018/12/12 10:12
Unable to transfer a previous folder directly to the app. It has the ability to sort the photos by the date taken, whether or not there are people in the photos etc. But for some reason if you have an album created on it, it does not recognize it. Therefore the ONLY way to recreate an existing album is to manually add every single photo individually. Which in some cases is almost an impossible tasking, sifting through thousands of photos to recreate something that already exists and can be transferred by a click if they enabled that function. It seems like a simple tool as most photo apps sort the photos by the albums they’re already in, not the current date. Also the app does not save the photos when it is not open.
I like the storage- wish it was more versatile
by donaldsonh on 2018/07/30 00:35
I like that all my pics are instantly backed up and stored and I never have to worry about losing them. I do wish you could order prints and i wish searching for a specific pic was easier. Also, it seems to take longer for my pics to download to prime photos than my other photo app, in which pics are instantly dropped in. I got the prime photo app so I could access the photos instantly from anywhere as long as I was on my prime account, but i haven’t been able to figure that out yet. All in all, I have better luck with my other photo app- i just keep this app for extra back up for my photos and for video storage
EXCELLENT
by SusieQ 71561 on 2020/04/30 16:15
I have never used an app that has had the capabilities to keep all my photos thru my many different changes of iPhones, computers and iPads. I don't have to save to cloud it must do it automatically . I would love to purchase one of the albums but never seem to have the time to organize my thoughts but that is a great option also . Also other ones that if you take a quick look you will see they have several different things to choose from. Updates seem to be done on a pretty good frequency which I like also.
Could be so much better
by As de corazones on 2018/02/24 19:48
I have found Prime Photos incredibly frustrating to use, for the following reasons: 1. It offers the ability to place photos in albums, but there is no way to click on a given photo and quickly check what, if any, albums it already belongs to. You have to go to the album and look through it to check. This makes the album feature useless as far as I'm concerned. 2. I have not been able to set this app to automatically back up photos in external storage on my phone. Apparently the automatic backup feature only works if you save your photos to internal storage. I like that Prime Photos provides unlimited cloud backup, but as a photo management app it has some serious deficiencies. I will come back and give it five stars if they are fixed.
Great way to back up photos!
by PJ Lawrence on 2018/01/05 05:39
I love this app as a secondary backup for my photos. However, due to the limitation on video (all non-photo files in fact) space, I still need another backup method and keep another copy at home on my hard drive. In addition, I wish this app would not rename all of my files with completely different and very long names! I understand the need to avoid duplicate file names caused by the standard systems used on devices, but it would really be nice if the original IMG-xxxx name could be kept with just a short addition to make it unique. This is the only reason for 4 stars instead of 5 on my rating.
Great extra backup with Prim free photo
by JMS1 on 2019/09/30 13:47
Nice belt and suspenders backup for camera roll and in between manual backup syncs to local storage. I don’t pay for the iCloud photos backup due to a 1.5 Tb library of Raw photos from DSLR’s and videos from iPhone. The time between manual syncs leaves a gap of potentially lost data in case of damaged or lost phone. So, letting this app pickup the captures in between is value added piece of mind. Plus the extra screen captures and daily snaps of deposits or grocery lists don’t need to be saved in the roll once this is synced but can be useful if needed later.
Great App but needs a little more tweaks!!
by LovaTkay on 2018/03/21 13:42
This is a great app considering now more than ever we take photos of everything. With that being said the unlimited amount of photos that can be uploaded is as plus+++++. However, the time it takes for them to upload isn't as great. Also I'd like the idea of not having to have the app open in order for them to upload, that prevents me from multitasking which is a major minus-----. Also, it would be nice if the app once downloaded and recognize the faces of the ppl we have already set to a folder, would go to that folder automatically if that photo is a single of that person. Other than that this is a great app!!!
Only 4 Stars For One Reason...
by Odder_or on 2018/05/14 19:33
I love this app and the services that it offers. I appreciate that it exists and provides a reliable, unlimited, user friendly way to back up pictures. The one and only reason it is not 5 stars for me is that I would like to have a setting that keeps the uploading priority highest, even when I only have the app going in the background. Alternatively or in addition I would like to have a setting option that allows my phone to automatically upload my photos in the middle of the night, when by bandwidth is less taxed and in demand. In my area DSL is the fastest connection available, and since I often do not remember to turn on the Prime Photos App, often times when I am uploading it is hundreds (or thousands!) of photos at a time. So to recap through all those run on sentences; Dear Prime PTB, Please add • A priority setting re: upload speed while the App is in the background and/or • An automatic scheduled upload/backup option Thanks! —Lisa =^..^=
Amazonian Relics
by NEDEMPSTER on 2020/10/23 21:12
I was unaware that this app had saved any photos of mine, nor did I know it existed and ran on my former device. I wish I had it years ago, so that I would have access to the photos on my now defunct laptops(I only hold on to them with the hopes that someday someone can restore my photos and documents). Aside from the fact that I am a staunch opponent of Besos and the way he treats the ' Peasants' that get your precious new junk to you on time, alst' while collecting all of our data for nefarious purposes-lm glad something is keeping my memories in one place. Bc though I'm still young, I'm quickly losing them.
Wonderful unlimited storage for photos
by Joe.a.m on 2019/04/28 02:37
This Is the primary storage for all of My family’s photos across phones, cameras, and computers. Seamless automatic uploads, Flexibility with downloads including full native resolution that photos were taken (alternative services like Shutterfly do not let you download the native resolution of the photos in order to force you to order prints through them). Finally it syncs across devices quickly, So I can take a photo on my SLR camera on loaded on my computer and sync the photos to my phone in a matter of minutes.
The best photo uploading app ever
by tonygaglio on 2020/11/22 21:53
This app is bar none the best Photo uploading app I have ever used, it’s even better than the popular competitor. This app supports Live Photo, uploads fast and it actually displays photo storage size during the upload and gives a progress bar for each upload, which i think is a really nice touch. All photos are stored in original quality and upload for free with a Prime subscription. Videos are limited to 5GB but that’s fine since this app is really best suited for photo backup. Thanks for making a great app.
Alloowas you to keep your memories
by Goodstuffbutappcrashes on 2019/08/12 04:27
Love having this app although I’ve had to remove it and add it back again to keep working correctly. Samsung doesn’t have this problem, which is my only complaint. They got better about using cellular data finally. This was our biggest issue with a family divided between apple and Samsung. If you have problems downloading your pics, just delete the app, and try again. Takes a bit going through pics, but gets it right after that. Have the same issue, do it again. Hopefully, the developers will get it right.
Very Functional
by AS John Galt on 2020/10/13 08:40
But maybe some more artistic and creative in app features like more custom views and layouts like mosaic vies based on original dimension layouts...a light table slide view, maybe similar abridged to it’s more fundamental features seen in more complex, feature rich applications and phot platforms offered by more expensive and more tailored to photographers and post camera roll digital photo developers. Just some thoughts...or maybe if development funding is tight some macro functions and easy interfaces helpful in flipping chosen photos to and Adobe platform to help in the further enhancement, editing etc. of the image(s).
Excited to see where this goes
by Imkevinberry on 2020/03/15 11:25
I use to have folders and folders of photos saved to a computer desktop growing up. Times are changing and I don’t have time to sit down and upload them to my laptop anymore. While it’s nice to still have that option, being able to upload photos on-the-go is a lot more desirable. And my photos can stay somewhere safe rather than on my phone. The app is nice and clean. Easy to navigate. Does the job I was expecting. I do have one suggestion though regarding photo organization. Would there ever be a consideration to allow sub-albums inside of albums? For example: An album called “Vacations”, and inside that album could be other albums like “Disneyland 2018”, “New York 2019”, “Bahamas Cruise 2020”, etc. That way I can more easily navigate which folders I want to get to. I’ll know my vacation photos are in one album, hiking photos in another, work events in another, and so on. So far I’m enjoying the app.

Description
Everyone else gets 5 GB for photos and videos. Use the Groups feature to privately pool and share full-resolution photos and videos. You can view and share your photos on nearly any phone, tablet, or computer, and you can set a screensaver on your Fire TV, Echo Show, or Echo Spot. AUTO-SAVE AND BACK UP YOUR PHOTOS Set the app to Auto-Save your photos and videos from your phone so they get backed up automatically. Once your photos are stored in Amazon Photos, you can delete them from your device to make room on your phone. This free photo storage app can help you keep your photos and videos safe, even if your phone is lost or damaged. PRIME MEMBERS Amazon Prime members have unlimited photo storage + 5 GB video storage. They can also share their storage with five others by adding them to their Family Vault, and search for photos by keyword, location, or the name of the person in the photo. SEARCH FOR PHOTOS BY KEYWORD Your photos are easy to find, because the app organizes your photos automatically.

We receive this app through Amazon prime. It’s great for our photos. However, we need more memory for videos. That is why I rated it 4 stars instead of 5.

Amazon photos review
by Andre Bolla on 2020/12/02 04:13
The app takes a long time to upload the photos and the videos is also annoying to try to add your photos to your fire stick for a picture portfolio , and the servers seem to be very slow for Seattle Washington. Why? My thoughts, and grievances. In my opinion United States is going backwards as far as the technology infrastructure and maintenance is concerned I wish they would stop hiding the Cash overseas and put it back in America.

by robertalovingpix on 2020/12/02 02:42
Too soon to tell as it is Very very very slow at backing up photos. I’m full on icloud so was hoping Amazon will replace it. However it is taking such a long time. I haven’t had a chance to see how it will work. I’m hoping it will be able to organize photos including locations and dates taken with edit options.

Amazon photos has free unlimited photo storage for Prime members so when I filled up the 2tb storage max on my Apple cloud, I started using Amazon photos thinking it was a temporary solution until I bought some type of external storage but have since decided it will now be my main storage. I dreaded using a new app but it turned out Amazon photos could not be easier to use and I especially love the flexibility to manually organize my photos!!!! For a heavy user like me- the unlimited photo storage and an ap that I really like is amazing! (The cost of additional storage for my videos that go over & above the video storage limit is incredibly low too). I highly recommend Amazon Photos!
Fails at the essentials
by mveras1972 on 2020/12/01 22:13
I really want this app to work for me because Google is tightening their belt and will no longer be unlimited photos. However, if Amazon doesn’t get their act together, this app won’t work for me. First it would not show any of my pictures, but somehow if I searched I found a few even though it said it had uploaded all photos from my iPhone. I uninstalled and reinstalled the app to no avail. The only thing that worked was to sign out and sign back in. Clearing the cache didn’t work. But then I have new pictures and somehow the app refuses to back them up. This doesn’t look good. Google Photos runs circles around this. It’s basically set it and forget it. I never needed to worry about my photos were being uploaded to Google. It just worked. With this, it’s hit or miss and no rhyme or reason why it doesn’t upload photos automatically. Please fix these fundamental issues, otherwise this is worthless and I will have to look elsewhere.
Nice place for all phots
by Chaos739 on 2020/12/01 20:40
Great app only change I would make is a delay on how fast it syncs. There are some trash photos that end up on the app even though I deleted them on the phone.

by allaababyy on 2020/09/20 04:52
Such an amazing app!!! Only cons i can even think of which I really shouldn’t consider cons, but I’ll mention them anyways is I wish I could have THE OPTION to sort my photos the way they are in the photos app that comes with the iPhone and the fact that there is no like premade albums for your photos and then one specifically for your videos and then just a separate one for them both, which is what they have now, them combined. I get that you can make your own albums and do that yourself but that takes time..... especially when you have a ton of photos!! But ya if it could have the option -just like the iPhone photos app again.... haha but yeah this app saves me soooo much storage!!! Especially if you have a prime account! It would also be amazing if they could add a feature to help you delete any duplicates of photos, I know they’ll tell you if you’ve already uploaded a specific photo onto the app already if you’re trying to re-upload it by accident or whatever, but sometimes the same picture gets uploaded by a different phone.
What a great thing.
by Jinni9141 on 2019/12/27 01:27
I am in my 70s and realized that I had so many online photos between my phone, computer and tablet and I knew I should move them to a flash drive or something for my family but dreaded how long it was going to take me. Then I learned about this program. It is so easy because it does all the work. You don’t have to sit there saving pictures from one source to another. I told it to save the pictures that were on my tablet and within minutes it saved over 1000 pictures while I watched a movie. It adds any new pictures you take them automatically and you can edit pictures you have duplicates of etc. I think you’ll love it.
Good when it works.
by Black1304 on 2020/09/27 08:01
When it works correctly, this app is great. After I sign it, it usually works for 3 or 4 days, then will be stuck "checking" for x-amount of pictures, never loads them and then I either have to sign out and sign back in or delete the app and download it again. Then when I login, it's stuck on the login page for about 12 hours, then is on a blank white page for about 12 hours, then everything is fine and it works for a few days before I have to repeat the process again. I have some photos that it has never backed up and it apparently never will because even when I tell it to upload them, it gets stuck and they still never backup. But... for free... and unlimited storage... I can't be too mad. Update: the app has been working amazingly well, until iOS 14. Now every time I open the app it gives me the login screen, but I have to log out first or nothing happens. When I login, it acts like the first time I’ve ever used the app and tries to upload everything from my Photos. I have to reset my settings the way I want them and delete a bunch of pictures that have uploaded and been deleted previously.
Great app. Needs a couple of changes though...
by WoodyKib2000 on 2019/06/03 23:32
In albums there should be a feature where you can change your most recent uploaded pictures to be at the top on the album. It used to be this way. It has changed. Now all my recent pictures are at the bottom in the albums I’ve created and its a pain to scroll down 200 pics all the way to the bottom to see if I added it to the album. Please change this feature or at least add a feature for date taken or uploaded within the albums created. I know there is a feature like this under all the pictures taken but not in the albums. Please add this feature. Also, I’ve noticed when I add an article that I have screen shotted with my phone and add it to my albums of saved articles, it uploads in the album backwards. I get the last page of the article 1st in the album instead of last. The first page is at the bottom, not at the top. This feature definitely needs to be changed.
Love this - Please add multi-select option!!
by CiaraSebecke on 2019/12/28 19:16
As a photographer I love that this allows me to store high quality RAW files from the camera without having to pay for expensive cloud storage outside of my Prime membership!! Really awesome as other services do not store the full quality images. I also love the faces features and ability to search by what’s in the picture. I edit most of my photos on iPad so its great as I can just import them from camera and back them up here and my hard drive. There is ONE THING that is super annoying and should be fixed- the ability to multi select or select all. I dont want to back up every single item in my photos just the RAW photos and edited versions. So I have to manually select each photo which is so many when I do a shoot with 400 images for example. If I could hold and drag to multi-select or create albums in iPhone photos and choose “select all” it would make using this app a million times easier.
Still have to use iCloud
by Yuls24 on 2018/05/25 07:32
* Review updated I started using the app after several days which were necessary to upload all the photos from my phone. There are definitely nice features. I like that the app offers you to look at the pics that were taken on the same day previous years. My biggest disappointment, however, is that the app backs up pictures as soon as they are taken (if wi-fi is available) and doesn’t update them if they are being edited. I take quite a few pics a day and, at the end of it, I edit the best of them. If they were baked up some time earlier in the day, they remain unchanged. I was hoping that Prime Photo could be a free (well, I pay for prime either way) substitute of iCloud, but, unfortunately, it can’t. As soon as I get a new phone, am I supposed to edit a couple thousand pics again?! *** I haven’t really started using the app yet, but I’m already frustrated. I have lots of pictures on my phone - around 8 thousand. I know it takes time to copy/back them up, but not that much! The app was running a few hours at night and several hours in the morning, it managed to back up only a half! My phone barely works when it’s running and they want you to keep the app open for it to work faster which means I can’t use my phone at all. I stopped myself from deleting the app several times already. I hope in a few days it’s gonna download all the pics so I could finally check out all the features.
Solid mediocrity
by stclair77 on 2019/09/23 14:39
So far, it is difficult for me to properly rate the app. I have been trying to back my photos up for a couple of days. I have just over 12,000. I left the app open overnight last night and woke up with 491 photos remaining to back up. I needed to send a quick text message, so I switched over to messaging, sent my message and promptly returned to the photo app. The count went back up to over 12,000 and the app now is “checking for backup”, counting down in the same fashion as when I started the process last night. As an added service to something I already pay for (Prime), it’s tough to complain but it isn’t doing what I need it to yet, so I need to maintain middle ground until I have some indication that it will ever back up my photos. It doesn’t do any background uploading, wifi or not, and I can’t just leave the app open all day. Each time I go back into it now, it starts over.
Only a few minutes and bugs are showing
by Jsanch224 on 2020/06/14 21:41
I’ve only use the app literally like 15 minutes and I am so furious with this app. You’d think something with great ratings will be good but I am so disappointed. Let me tell you why. 1st as I was trying to upload photo for my Echo Show, the app decided it had to notify me through mid selection that it needed to update.. I lost my progress of selecting 30 photos.. okay no biggie I can reselect it. After it did what it did, I tried to reselect the same photo.. well where is the upload section? It’s hidden in settings.. why is this the location for such an important function? I had to google where it was FYI. Upon finding the upload section, I can’t access my favorites... at this point I’m starting to pull my hair. Desperately trying to get my favorites folder to show up, I close the app, delete some folders in my photos app, and kept trying to find a solution. To my surprise.. nothing worked. At this point I am desperate to add photos to my echo show because I have a party to host.. so here I am selecting photos with over 11k photos without a way to narrow it down... But the last thing, the very last thing that is making me frustrated.. is how much the scrolling jumps.. I’d be scrolling then all the sudden it jumps all the way down near below the center of photos.. this happened at least 4 times, until I need to write this review. I’m done with this app. Complete disappointment. ughhh I am so frustrated..
Impressive App; Needs 1 fix
by SushiCamiChar on 2018/02/07 14:16
One thing would make this a 5 star review: Would love it if the picture was removed from the main photos page when you add it to an album. OR at least, the app needs to clearly show if the picture has been added to an album. Currently, there is no way to know which pictures I have placed in albums. This is very annoying when you have a thousand pictures to organize. Otherwise, love the unlimited storage of the ORIGINAL PICTURE SIZE with Prime membership!!! It’s TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE! I’m just waiting for them to take that away (please don’t take it away). Was using paid Dropbox, but I don’t have enough room to upload at original pic size (although Dropbox gives you a lot of storage, pictures are large!). This is a wonderful membership perk and well worth it!
Hard to complain when it’s free
by Bjc1234 on 2018/01/06 20:06
I shoot a lot of pictures so I need a lot of back up space. The unlimited space provided by this app provides an additional piece of mind for all my shots. The interface is a bit clunky and is a major memory hog. The other issue I have encountered is that it is no longer recognizing my canon raw files after processing them through Lightroom (CR2 files). The problem just started in the last month so I am not sure the issue. However this would be a major negative if it can’t store canon raw files. It’s by no means perfect. The information and instruction on use is lacking which in my case lead to a major error. In one case, I eliminated a folder on prime, only to discover that that action also deleted the original file on the hard drive. Luckily I had the raw files still on the memory card. In summary, if you are a prime member, you should absolutely use it. It’s another way to back up your pics at no cost. However if I had to pay for the service, I don’t think I would, at least not with current functionality. In conclusion, I feel like an ingrate complaining about a free service that I am using! From a value perspective, I rate it 4 out of 5.
Comvenient And Easy To Use
by Casual skeptic on 2019/12/15 13:05
I use prime photos to back up all my photos from all devices. This app makes it easy to view my whole library from my phone or iPad. It is also very simple to upload photos directly from my devices. Several years ago there was a sync function on the app version of prime photos that could make it easy to accidentally delete pictures from prime photos when you deleted them from your phone. That sync feature, as far as i can tell, has been removed from the app, so you can use prime as a simple backup rather than a mirrored drive like iCloud or 365. The sync version still exists when accessing prime photos through your browser, such as you would on your computer, but even there i turned it off.
Great app til recent update, keep accidentally adding favorites to whole albums as I make an album
by Crazy71234 on 2019/08/03 21:23
I really love your app except two things...one is a long-standing complaint, that exif info including time&date&location, does download with pictures. The second is a new development since recent update. The “add to favorites” is right above the “add to album” tab. I’ve been careful only to hit add to album, and for some reason, it makes the whole album “add to favorites” and I can’t figure out how to remove that designation for one photo, let along a newly created album that has over 1,000 photos&videos...also, why isn’t the “add to album” on the top but you put it on the bottom? I don’t know who designed this specific change, but it’s not user friendly, especially it adding yo favorites when I’ve been careful to ensure I hit only “add to albums”. Please fix.
storage could've improved since the photobucket days
by LunaVolt on 2019/08/08 18:03
k Its been real helpful so im sharing my thoughts, Ive been moving plenty since I was 15 y/o and I tried to keep storing on different platforms, and still the softwares seem to not take in account that is really thin percentage of world population that can afford the devices and web speed that u need to navigate all the options for this function of the internet(storage) desides thst. yeah it is a tiny bit less frustrating than apple and clud n so on. also remember that if you get account canceled ull lose ur stuff, but u can share a family vault so u got a backup and also two account with prime so u do get a sorta sense of privacy wich is pretty good. so yeah four stars.
Best cloud app
by Jaii7875 on 2018/01/15 00:52
That’s a true statement, let me tell you why. All the other photo clouds tell you that they saving us disk space by backing up our photos and saving them all in their clouds. Not true! They copy our photos , but when we erase our original photos from our devices they also get deleted from the clouds. They are not supposed to be just copying our photos, they are supposed to be saving them after we delete them from our devices. Otherwise where are we saving any space on our devices? This is the only one that I found that actually lets you delete photos from your devices and safely saves your originals. Therefore actually freeing up our disk space. Great app!
A great alternative for extra storage
by Kricket35077 on 2018/09/27 21:31
With a prime membership this app is included, it has lots of storage space, but lacks in keeping up with recent photos. I have my photos in this app to scroll across my tv screen as a screen saver and I have seen photos pop up that I do not have anymore and had forgotten all about, they are very random. In which it is nice to see surprise photos but I’m more concerned with recent photos I have taken and they are there floating around in space somewhere. It is good to have for a extra backup, especially when my iPhone is constantly telling me to pay more for storage, not this gal, I will use other apps to save my photos that I can access anytime similar to this app. All in all I would recommend it
Love this App
by treugnhipe on 2020/01/11 02:25
I love the ease of use, the features offered have wonderful quality and as above are again easy and fun. I like that it backs up when you open it...and theirs so many ways to organize photos and videos and many options of what to do with them. Size of storage is reasonable and I have so many gigabytes of media not even close to maximum and I’m in the double digits. I do wish that when you’re uploading a lot of photos and such that you could do other things. Apparently you have to leave the application open for uploading. But the WONDERFUL QUALITIES of the app make up for it undoubtedly. I love this app and DEFINITELY RECOMMEND IT TO ANYONE WHO LOVES PHOTOS AND VIDEOS AND NEEDS A NO FUSS PLACE TO STORE THEM!!! Kid friendly...
Essential features missing
by Elwood_37 on 2017/11/04 20:33
This is almost a great program. However, it falls short in a number of crucial ways. Firstly, there is no way to correct the many mistakes the facial recognition software makes. When it fails to recognize that an image contains a person, I can’t manually tag it. What’s worse, it frequently misidentifies two or three people as being the same person, and there’s no way to manually disambiguate. This is an essential function that must be added, and which competitor programs already have. Frustratingly, the facial recognition 'People' folders index only the photos uploaded by your own account. They leave out all the photos of the same people in the family vault. So it’s not a very useful compilation of all the photos of somebody. Thirdly, while this app allows manual album creation, your albums are stored only on your own account, and are not visible to anyone you add to your family vault. It’d be a huge bonus to be able to share albums with your family members. I’d also really appreciate being able to rotate a photo right in my account, without having to download it to my device, rotate it in a separate program, and re-upload it to prime photo all over again. With a few fixes, this can be an excellent photo storage program.
This app saved my life!
by gb-dave-in-or on 2020/09/27 16:23
Ok, not literally, however, I had tried and failed with other options like iCloud, portable storage drives, and external flash drives. The first costs money, and could not handle multiple users, the second did not work with my phone, and the third died and may or may not be recoverable. Get this app before your current phone dies and takes your photos with it! Video storage is limited, but if you take lots of videos, you can pay to upgrade to a bigger plan. I think about the people who have lost everything in the recent wildfires. If they had this app, at least they would be able to reprint family photos later.
Good, but needs work,
by FoodForThought! on 2019/01/13 16:40
Overall, this is a pretty good photo app for those looking for an alternative photo App, which also contains decent editing and storage features. It does have annoying aspects to it as well, such as not being able to default to a selected Album, nor the ability to lock individual Albums. (Unless all pics are placed in the Hidden Photos section, which somewhat defeats the purpose) A few annoying bugs when it comes to storage or organization. E.g..Pics selected as Album covers are lost the moment you move new photos into that particular albums. Tech support is a little disappointing. Quick to respond, however not quite attentive to questions, issues or problem solving. Kinda felt like Robo Support. My suggestion would be to try before you buy!
BEST app to backup photos!
by Tvasilik on 2020/05/18 07:34
This is the best app I’ve ever used to backup my photos. I take about 10-20 pictures every single time I’m taking a photo. I also take tons of worthless screenshots. By using this app to backup my photos I’m able to keep every single one archived and then keep my photo library on my iPhone cleared out. The initial backup took about a day. I had 31,000 pictures. Excessive I know! But now it takes only a minute per day to backup the new stuff. Love love love! I hate backing up with iCloud and tech support suggested google photos as an alternative. I hated that app. It also doesn’t keep the pictures full resolution. Try this out, you won’t be disappointed!
No worry no cost photo archive
by Obsessive Consultive on 2020/03/29 16:31
I’m a hoarder. A digital hoarder. I have files from the early days of DOS I don’t throw out. So pictures yeah I have a few. A few thousand. I have filled up 3- 20 Tb drives-yes terabyte. Don’t judge me. I keep seagate paying those fat dividends. So the idea of being able to archive all my photos in the cloud for free-I’m in. Easy and mostly automatic uploads. Easy to browse. Kind of fun blasts from the past. As I am still not over the loss of thousands of pictures from an accidental repartition if a 20TB vault a year ago ( deep deep sob) this is a balm on my damaged psyche. Privacy? Over rated. If somebody wants to browse my dogs and trips to Europe and secret prototype robots ( ok not the robots) then it’s fine.
Easy to use, but lacking some features
by Sir3nsong on 2018/11/18 16:31
I really appreciate the ability to easily backup my photos. I also like the idea of it recognizing people; however that feature definitely needs work. The app routinely ‘recognizes’ non-facial things as people. If I go in manually and remove whatever name it has attributed it to, it simply chooses another person. There really needs to be a way to tell it that isn’t a person. I would also love a way to categorize photos by subject matter (places, pets, etc), so I could easily find a photo I was looking for. Most other apps I’ve used have these abilities. All that being said, I can’t complain too much, as it’s unlimited photo storage and comes included with Prime.
Needs some work.
by gpelican58 on 2018/09/22 17:31
I like the program overall so don’t get me wrong. I like that it can recognize faces and place those photos under the correct person you have named. The problem is that every once in a while it places the wrong photo under the wrong person. That in itself is not the issue as no software is full-proof in this regard and it is to be expected. The issue stems from the fact that that once this happens, you have NO way of moving that photo to the appropriate person’s folder and can be quite frustrating. If I’m missing something here, I would appreciate some hints on how to correct but till then that flaws appears to be this app’s Achilles heel. I would have given it a higher rating to be sure if not for this serious shortcoming!
App times out often ...
by Wealth Creation on 2017/11/28 17:08
I wasn’t even aware that I had this feature from Prime which is a cost saver & bonus. I use an iPhone that really needed more space so I just wanted to store them easily rather that purchase additional cloud space. This task became so laborious. My app timed out several times. It really could not cope with uploading, verifying & deleting more than 50 pics at a time. I went to bed leaving it to upload only to become more confused as to which pictures I could delete off iPhone🙁. I’m still doing it 3 weeks later because it keeps timing out. So now I have to keep going back & forth between app & pics b4 deleting. As one reviewer commented “it’s FREE”. Oh, I forgot, the above comments does not include uploading videos. I am too scared to start if pics took so long.
Really really great photo storage but...
by emyopdx on 2017/10/04 00:16
This app works wonderfully 90% of the time. Open it up, it automatically scans phone and saves all photos and videos, then you have great access to your entire library wherever you go! However every once in awhile it will get stuck. Like really really stuck. Will need to delete app and re-download. This is an excruciating process because then it needs to scan the whole photo library again. Another issue is it will "miss" videos (usually not photos) in the auto scan that you will have to manually upload. Overall I love the ease and functionality. My husband and I log onto the same account and can see all our pics in one place.
Keeps all your photos safe
by DeeQb on 2019/08/08 23:31
This app keeps all your photos safe by uploading them to the cloud so that if your device is lost or destroyed, you won’t lose them. Your photos are available through the app at any time you have connectivity, so you can access ALL your photos from your phone at any time without using up your storage space. My favorite features are the automatic upload from both my phone and desktop, and the ability to search by person, subject (like “dogs”) or date. I would like for it to be easier to save a set of pictures to a folder or album on my device
GOOD BUT NOT THE GREATEST
by ALGP081613 on 2020/01/10 22:45
decent quality prints . . . invites arrived a day earlier than expected, but overnight delivery cost nearly 1/2 the cost of the purchased product, and the difference of one day made ALL of the difference without knowing what time to expect the delivery . . . I wasn’t particularly thrilled that the invites were only sold by increments of 25, and disappointed that I was short shipped [received fewer than 25] upon arrival. The convenience of the service seemed attractive to me when I started the project, but I think I expected the turn around to be a little faster since I took care of the “type-setting.” I would use the service again but do realize that I would need to start any project well in advance . . . with the understanding that card designs and layouts are limited . . .
Great app
by bob423 on 2017/12/24 13:22
I have all my photos stored in the cloud with this app. It syncs without a problem with my desktop and I can access all the photos with any device - very handy. Recognition of faces and objects is is a key feature for organizing photos and for finding that one photo you’re looking for. Only one thing is missing - file structure. The folders need to be organized to replicate the file folders on the PC. There needs to be folders and sub-folders. Otherwise it’s hard to find the one folder labeled, “cropped” when it could be a subfolder of Bob or Tom or Vacation, e.g. All the “cropped” folders are bunched together and you can’t tell them apart without looking. Fix that and it’s a 5 star product!!
Love it!
by D-n-V on 2019/07/17 09:48
Amazon/Prime photos is fantastic! It’s unlimited photo storage with customizable settings. I have my account set to automatically sync every time I open the app while on Wi-Fi. Pictures sync on all of my devices, as well as my wife’s, allowing us to retrieve photos anywhere there is Wi-Fi connection. This includes viewing them on TV (smart TV). This also allows me to share with other family members. Although video storage is not unlimited, the space is still significant enough for us to record our childrens middle school/high school concerts and send & share with family living out of state.
Not Quite There
by Nurse that Sings on 2018/08/11 13:59
You have so many well-written reviews by people that value this app, but also have valuable suggestions as to how to make it better. Have you paid attention to your customers and taken note of their critiques? Many of them have already mentioned things I would change and those reviews are from months ago. Right now, my biggest issue is the time it takes to download my photos. I will keep using it because the storage is free with prime. I would suggest listening to your customers in order to make this a better app and you might actually get more customers that don’t just use it because it’s free with prime. 🤷🏼‍♀️ Just sayin’.
Almost Perfect Photo App
by morfit on 2018/01/23 15:34
Great value all around for Prime Members. Two problems keep it from being my go to photos app (Google photos still has it beat unfortunately) 1) It needs to work in the background to auto upload photos...don’t understand why it can’t because Google photos does perfectly 2) In order to make Family Vault work we need to absolutely be able to see each other’s people tags and places otherwise it is half a solution (or at least make that an option to check off if privacy is a concern). Right now only I can see the people tags for my photos and wife can only see hers in our own accounts and not in the Family Vault.
Life saver
by Taintedheart on 2020/04/15 07:03
I love having the ability to share with family, having everyone’s first grandchildren and twins. I was always having to send so many texts and emails. Now I can send out one group texts to check the app. Family can buy their own prints or whatever other custom item they want. They one reason I would give it four stars and not five would be, my husband and I share the same account so that we have each other’s pics and their is some lag on my iPhone vs his Samsun. He can instantly see my downloads but it takes a bit longer for me to see on my phone his adds even though if I go on his phone I can clearly see them their.
Love this app
by so so traveler on 2020/09/27 12:46
I love that I can download all my photos with this app. I didn’t want to have to pay an extra fee to have additional cloud backup on my phone and since I have Prime this allowed me to take as many pictures and videos as I wanted with my phone and then back them up thus allowing me to delete off my phone and start all over again the next day! This served me well during a 28 day motorcycle adventure in 13 states!! No more messages about not being able to take pictures because my phone storage was full and I can access them any time.
Lightroom Doesn’t Recognize iPhone photos in Prime
by User8K! on 2018/01/08 18:25
After I turned on Prime Photos on my phone, I connected my iPhone to my computer and tried to import my photos into Lightroom. Lightroom did not recognize any of the photos for import that had copies saved in Prime Photos. It was like my phone was empty, even though my photos still show on my phone. So, while Prime Photos sounds like a great idea for cloud storage, it will screw up any photographer’s workflow who uses Lightroom. Now I’m trying to find instructions for downloading my photos from Prime to my computer, so I can import them in Lightroom. All kinds of tips on putting photos into Prime, but still looking for how to retrieve the full res copies. That should be a basic function of cloud storage: retrieving your photos from the cloud.
Excellent - now works with Live Photo’s, too
by David in LA on 2018/02/27 23:43
This is an excellent way to back up your iPhone photos, which will otherwise quickly eat up your 5GB cap on free iCloud storage. I suggest setting automatic backup of pictures BUT NOT videos, as videos count against your 5 GB cap on free storage. Not so your still pictures, or even Live Photo’s! Save individual videos to Prime Photos to manage that 5GB cap. Back up is not automatic; you have to have the Prime Photo app active on your phone, and “Auto-Save” enabled in settings, for the backup to take place. Again, in settings, I suggest you keep the “Videos” switch (for auto-save) set to off. Photos can easily be moved to an album and filtered by date; the date of a photo (say, that you download from something someone else posted) can be edited to match the date of the event. The only major feature missing is the ability to add a short caption to a specific photo in your collection or album.
Unable to move complete folders to app
by Lovelyreading11135 on 2018/12/12 10:12
Unable to transfer a previous folder directly to the app. It has the ability to sort the photos by the date taken, whether or not there are people in the photos etc. But for some reason if you have an album created on it, it does not recognize it. Therefore the ONLY way to recreate an existing album is to manually add every single photo individually. Which in some cases is almost an impossible tasking, sifting through thousands of photos to recreate something that already exists and can be transferred by a click if they enabled that function. It seems like a simple tool as most photo apps sort the photos by the albums they’re already in, not the current date. Also the app does not save the photos when it is not open.
I like the storage- wish it was more versatile
by donaldsonh on 2018/07/30 00:35
I like that all my pics are instantly backed up and stored and I never have to worry about losing them. I do wish you could order prints and i wish searching for a specific pic was easier. Also, it seems to take longer for my pics to download to prime photos than my other photo app, in which pics are instantly dropped in. I got the prime photo app so I could access the photos instantly from anywhere as long as I was on my prime account, but i haven’t been able to figure that out yet. All in all, I have better luck with my other photo app- i just keep this app for extra back up for my photos and for video storage
EXCELLENT
by SusieQ 71561 on 2020/04/30 16:15
I have never used an app that has had the capabilities to keep all my photos thru my many different changes of iPhones, computers and iPads. I don't have to save to cloud it must do it automatically . I would love to purchase one of the albums but never seem to have the time to organize my thoughts but that is a great option also . Also other ones that if you take a quick look you will see they have several different things to choose from. Updates seem to be done on a pretty good frequency which I like also.
Could be so much better
by As de corazones on 2018/02/24 19:48
I have found Prime Photos incredibly frustrating to use, for the following reasons: 1. It offers the ability to place photos in albums, but there is no way to click on a given photo and quickly check what, if any, albums it already belongs to. You have to go to the album and look through it to check. This makes the album feature useless as far as I'm concerned. 2. I have not been able to set this app to automatically back up photos in external storage on my phone. Apparently the automatic backup feature only works if you save your photos to internal storage. I like that Prime Photos provides unlimited cloud backup, but as a photo management app it has some serious deficiencies. I will come back and give it five stars if they are fixed.
Great way to back up photos!
by PJ Lawrence on 2018/01/05 05:39
I love this app as a secondary backup for my photos. However, due to the limitation on video (all non-photo files in fact) space, I still need another backup method and keep another copy at home on my hard drive. In addition, I wish this app would not rename all of my files with completely different and very long names! I understand the need to avoid duplicate file names caused by the standard systems used on devices, but it would really be nice if the original IMG-xxxx name could be kept with just a short addition to make it unique. This is the only reason for 4 stars instead of 5 on my rating.
Great extra backup with Prim free photo
by JMS1 on 2019/09/30 13:47
Nice belt and suspenders backup for camera roll and in between manual backup syncs to local storage. I don’t pay for the iCloud photos backup due to a 1.5 Tb library of Raw photos from DSLR’s and videos from iPhone. The time between manual syncs leaves a gap of potentially lost data in case of damaged or lost phone. So, letting this app pickup the captures in between is value added piece of mind. Plus the extra screen captures and daily snaps of deposits or grocery lists don’t need to be saved in the roll once this is synced but can be useful if needed later.
Great App but needs a little more tweaks!!
by LovaTkay on 2018/03/21 13:42
This is a great app considering now more than ever we take photos of everything. With that being said the unlimited amount of photos that can be uploaded is as plus+++++. However, the time it takes for them to upload isn't as great. Also I'd like the idea of not having to have the app open in order for them to upload, that prevents me from multitasking which is a major minus-----. Also, it would be nice if the app once downloaded and recognize the faces of the ppl we have already set to a folder, would go to that folder automatically if that photo is a single of that person. Other than that this is a great app!!!
Only 4 Stars For One Reason...
by Odder_or on 2018/05/14 19:33
I love this app and the services that it offers. I appreciate that it exists and provides a reliable, unlimited, user friendly way to back up pictures. The one and only reason it is not 5 stars for me is that I would like to have a setting that keeps the uploading priority highest, even when I only have the app going in the background. Alternatively or in addition I would like to have a setting option that allows my phone to automatically upload my photos in the middle of the night, when by bandwidth is less taxed and in demand. In my area DSL is the fastest connection available, and since I often do not remember to turn on the Prime Photos App, often times when I am uploading it is hundreds (or thousands!) of photos at a time. So to recap through all those run on sentences; Dear Prime PTB, Please add • A priority setting re: upload speed while the App is in the background and/or • An automatic scheduled upload/backup option Thanks! —Lisa =^..^=
Amazonian Relics
by NEDEMPSTER on 2020/10/23 21:12
I was unaware that this app had saved any photos of mine, nor did I know it existed and ran on my former device. I wish I had it years ago, so that I would have access to the photos on my now defunct laptops(I only hold on to them with the hopes that someday someone can restore my photos and documents). Aside from the fact that I am a staunch opponent of Besos and the way he treats the ' Peasants' that get your precious new junk to you on time, alst' while collecting all of our data for nefarious purposes-lm glad something is keeping my memories in one place. Bc though I'm still young, I'm quickly losing them.
Wonderful unlimited storage for photos
by Joe.a.m on 2019/04/28 02:37
This Is the primary storage for all of My family’s photos across phones, cameras, and computers. Seamless automatic uploads, Flexibility with downloads including full native resolution that photos were taken (alternative services like Shutterfly do not let you download the native resolution of the photos in order to force you to order prints through them). Finally it syncs across devices quickly, So I can take a photo on my SLR camera on loaded on my computer and sync the photos to my phone in a matter of minutes.
The best photo uploading app ever
by tonygaglio on 2020/11/22 21:53
This app is bar none the best Photo uploading app I have ever used, it’s even better than the popular competitor. This app supports Live Photo, uploads fast and it actually displays photo storage size during the upload and gives a progress bar for each upload, which i think is a really nice touch. All photos are stored in original quality and upload for free with a Prime subscription. Videos are limited to 5GB but that’s fine since this app is really best suited for photo backup. Thanks for making a great app.
Alloowas you to keep your memories
by Goodstuffbutappcrashes on 2019/08/12 04:27
Love having this app although I’ve had to remove it and add it back again to keep working correctly. Samsung doesn’t have this problem, which is my only complaint. They got better about using cellular data finally. This was our biggest issue with a family divided between apple and Samsung. If you have problems downloading your pics, just delete the app, and try again. Takes a bit going through pics, but gets it right after that. Have the same issue, do it again. Hopefully, the developers will get it right.
Very Functional
by AS John Galt on 2020/10/13 08:40
But maybe some more artistic and creative in app features like more custom views and layouts like mosaic vies based on original dimension layouts...a light table slide view, maybe similar abridged to it’s more fundamental features seen in more complex, feature rich applications and phot platforms offered by more expensive and more tailored to photographers and post camera roll digital photo developers. Just some thoughts...or maybe if development funding is tight some macro functions and easy interfaces helpful in flipping chosen photos to and Adobe platform to help in the further enhancement, editing etc. of the image(s).
Excited to see where this goes
by Imkevinberry on 2020/03/15 11:25
I use to have folders and folders of photos saved to a computer desktop growing up. Times are changing and I don’t have time to sit down and upload them to my laptop anymore. While it’s nice to still have that option, being able to upload photos on-the-go is a lot more desirable. And my photos can stay somewhere safe rather than on my phone. The app is nice and clean. Easy to navigate. Does the job I was expecting. I do have one suggestion though regarding photo organization. Would there ever be a consideration to allow sub-albums inside of albums? For example: An album called “Vacations”, and inside that album could be other albums like “Disneyland 2018”, “New York 2019”, “Bahamas Cruise 2020”, etc. That way I can more easily navigate which folders I want to get to. I’ll know my vacation photos are in one album, hiking photos in another, work events in another, and so on. So far I’m enjoying the app.
