Smartphone cameras have grown leaps and bounds in recent years and the Pixel 2 is one of the best examples. Better cameras almost always lead to large photo collection. However, managing tons of photos is a challenge and this is where photo manager apps come in handy.
There are few great apps in the Google Play Store that let you organize and backup your precious memories. Here are three best photo manager apps for your Android.
Zyl is an AI based photo manager that allows you to automatically group your photos into ready-to-share albums. The first thing you will notice about the app is its beautiful UI that feels intuitive instantly. As soon as you open the app you can see all your latest photos. You can change the layout in which you want the photos to be displayed.
There are two main sections in the app - Magic albums and Manage duplicates. When you tap on Magic albums, the app will club all your photos from a party or a function by detecting the same faces. You can manually select which photos to add and create the album by naming it.
You can share these albums with your friends only after registering by providing your mobile number. The app even lets you lock your albums.
Zyl also detects the best pictures and deletes blurry photos and duplicates that are hogging your phone space. Finally, the app developer says it focuses on privacy and the photos aren’t used to learn more about you or target adds to you.
Slidebox is a gesture-based photo organizer that lets you swipe up the photos that you don’t want to keep. First released on iOS, the app is known to have a Tinder-like approach to your photo gallery where you swipe left to keep the photos and swipe up to discard them.
Slidebox also lets you organize photos immediately into albums. You can add an existing album from your gallery or create a new one and add photos into them with few swipes. There is also an option to compare the duplicate photos side by side.
All photos and albums are organized directly in Android Gallery, so they work great with any of your existing apps and services. Deleted photos will remain in the trash and you can restore them within 30 days. The only concern with the app is that you have to manually do the photo sorting.
The main aim of Slidebox is to help you have a compact gallery by making it easier to delete photos.
Shoebox is a free app that backs up photos from your devices. After you sign up for a free account it will automatically make a backup of all your photos on the cloud.
The app offers unlimited storage for your photos in high quality. You can backup only 15 minutes of video and each video can be up to 3 minutes long. You may restrict the app from backing up videos in order to save space.
It even lets you backup photos shared on Facebook once you connect the app with your Facebook account. Shoebox will let you rediscover your memories with 'This Day in History'.
In addition to the standard chronological view, the app allows you to browse photos based on locations, camera, time of day and season. It also provides an easy download button for your backups.
Photos are the best way to relive your special memories and hence it is better to organize them using these photo management apps.
