    Hi, in short this is my problem Google+ only syncs pictures from one folder instead of the entire gallery. How do I change this? It seems the camera saves all pictures taken to the default folder 'Camera' and Google+ likes to sync from only this folder. This would work perfect if I wouldn't mind having all my mixed pictures in one folder but I organize my pictures in different folders( i have 10 diffrent folder with 3-4 thousand pictures)

    I was wondering if there was a way to change syncing from only the 'Camera' folder, to the entire gallery. Thanks!

    Hi there Andrei!

    Moved your thread to Android Applications, since this is more of an app question than a device question. ;) Hopefully someone can help you get things figured out with your photos.

    Will Google+ sync everything from Picasa, including albums or folders? Will + fully sync from Picasa?

    I have a DropBox account, so I use DropSync to automatically move my screenshots and camera photos directly to DropBox, where it then saves it directly to my desktop computer's hard drive (which also syncs to my laptop giving me two copies of my backup photos). The free version of DropSync allows you to sync 1 folder, but the paid version allows syncing unlimited folders. I have mine set to move to my Dropbox and then delete from my phone, which saves me a heck of a lot of precious space on my phone.

    Even though everything gets moved off of my phone, I still have access to view, move, and copy those files from the DropBox phone app (if I'm not near my computers). There's also an option to share a folder with a friend; I have a folder that I share with my boyfriend, so if he has a file to send me he drops it into his folder on his computer, and I snag it seconds later from the folder on my computer. Easy way to share files and photos with family and friends (but they have to have Dropbox installed on their windows pc).

    I have 16.76GB of Dropbox space and never paid a dime. ;) They give you a pretty large amount of space for your free account, and every person who signs up for a free account through a link you provide, Dropbox gives you 500MB of extra space. That's how I got almost 17GB of space for free.

    The only time you pay Dropbox is if you want more space than the free space they already give you. I use to have my link in my sig, but I figured I have enough space now that I don't need to advertise anymore.

    Edit: Wasn't sure if you were aware or not, but Google only allows you so much space on your Google account, which is shared between Gmail, Google Drive, and Google+. 15GB is the limit between them all before you have to pay.

    from that page:

    "Google+ Photos
    Photos bigger than 2048x2048 pixels use your storage. Everything smaller than that is free."

    Awesome that your photos are small enough to fall into that category!!

    I don't use Picasa, it was just from what people posted about not getting rid of Pics in Gallery. They had thumbnails from photos they had deleted.
    I use Dropbox, and I have a Flickr account. I don't like Picasa. I edit all my stuff in Photoshop or Imageshrink before posting online anyway. I usually post at 600x800 72 DPI. Shows up just fine on a screen.

    I'm not sure how much space you have. Their blurb says up to 1TB. There is a phone app for Flickr. You can set up privacy, who can see, but like Google, if you have a Yahoo email, it shows up on the menu in mail. However, you still need to sign in separately.

    FlickrUp is my current favorite auto uploader for Flickr.

    Also, FolderSync can keep your folders synced up with your Dropbox and Box.com accounts (more than those, actually). The free version limits you to two connected accounts, with no limits for folder pairs.
