    How to Automatically Upload Photos From Your Digital Camera

    Not all of us have switched to smartphone photography. Whether you use a DSLR or just a point-and-shoot camera, there are ways to automatically upload and sync photos like you would with a smartphone.

    Some companies have tried to solve this problem by marketing “smart cameras,” but you don’t need a digital camera with touch-screen or even Wi-Fi built into do this.

    Automatically Upload Photos via Your Computer
    Your digital camera probably doesn’t have a built-in Wi-Fi or cellular data connection, so you can’t automatically upload photos directly from it without any additional hardware. However, when you connect your digital camera to your computer via a USB cable — or remove the SD card and insert it into your computer — you can have your computer immediately take over and automatically upload those photos.

    Dropbox has this nicely integrated. If you use Dropbox on your computer, you’ll see a “Camera Upload” dialog when you connect a digital camera or SD card containing photos to your computer. You can have Dropbox automatically import the latest photos when you connect your camera or SD card so they’ll be stored along with the rest of your files and synced to a standard place on all your computers.

    For Google+ Photos, you can install the Google+ Auto Backup application for Windows or Mac. If you use Windows 8.1, OneDrive can automatically upload images you place in your Camera Roll folder. Import images to the Camera Roll folder when you connect them to your Windows PC and they’ll automatically stored in OneDrive. Apple’s new Photos app for Mac will allow you to import your photos into your iCloud Photo Library.
