Manage Gallery in Samsung Cloud

Sync and manage pictures and videos in Gallery

Samsung Cloud acts as the last line of defense for all your files in the Gallery. From formal photos to silly selfies, you can set the Gallery to automatically sync to Samsung Cloud. You can even restore pictures or videos that were accidentally deleted, sync individual albums, and access the Gallery from the web. Read on to learn how to sync and manage your pictures and videos.

Available screens and settings may vary by wireless service provider and software version.

Samsung Cloud is not available on Verizon phones.

Samsung Cloud may not be available depending on your country or carrier.

Turn Gallery Auto Sync On or Off

On newer phones, the Gallery app's Auto Sync feature is turned off by default. But you can easily turn it on, so all your photos and videos will be uploaded to Samsung Cloud. Just follow the steps below:

From Settings, search for and select Samsung Cloud. Touch GALLERY, and then touch the slider to turn SYNC ON or SYNC OFF.

Note: When Auto Sync is off, photos and videos that were already synced will remain on Samsung Cloud.

Sync Specific Albums in Gallery

Certain photos are more important than others, like family holiday pictures. You can select certain Gallery albums to sync to the cloud, and leave others just on your phone. Here's how:

From Settings, search for and select Samsung Cloud. Touch Gallery, and then touch Albums to upload. Touch the sliders  next to your desired albums.

Note: When a new Album is created, photos and videos included in that Album will be uploaded to Samsung Cloud by default as long as syncing is turned on.

Delete Gallery Files from Samsung Cloud

From Settings, search for and select Samsung Cloud. Touch GALLERY, and then touch VIEW ALL. Select your desired pictures, and then touch DELETE. Finally, touch DELETE again to confirm.
