The main settings for the Gallery are as follows:

  • Samsung Cloud (for Samsung devices only). This option allows you to sync (move) all your photos to Google cloud storage. A total of 15 GB is available. You can turn on auto-sync – new photos will be automatically downloaded to the cloud (after that you can delete them to save space on your phone – they will remain in the cloud). I recommend setting up sync only via wi-fi to save mobile traffic. Well, you can always remove unnecessary images from the cloud. Gallery, Samsung Cloud settings
