If you sign up to Google+ you can do this with the Google+ app now. There is an Instant Upload option in the app. This syncs any photos (and videos if you set the option) to an Instant Upload album in Picasa.

I've used PicPush for this purpose - it worked well. Only issue I had was it occasionally pushing an already backed up picture a second time and some random future date. Not that critical of an issue, just wound up with a few duplicate photos in my Picasa account. It supports many common photo services too. $5, but if you download just the free portion of ...

Moto G doesn't have a Gyroscope Sensor (but it has an accelerometer) that's why Moto G didn't get the photosphere option. Actually Panorama doesn't require a gyroscope. While there are obviously ways to do panoramas without a gyroscope. It looks like they use the same engine as Photosphere to do the panoramas. So app also lacks Panorama. Source Thread ...

Open the stock People app (i.e. navigate to your contact list) > select the contact > select Edit contact > select the camera icon in the top left corner. Your options are Gallery (find an image already on your phone) or Camera (take a picture of the contact). Hope it helps!

As long as you have GPS switched on on your phone (on a Galaxy S the easiest way to do this is from the buttons that appear when you pull the notification bar down from the top of the screen) and have GPS switched on in the camera, you should see the "satellite receiver" GPS icon appear and start flashing when you open the camera app. As long as you see this ...

Here's a possible alternative solution. If you open the Dropbox app, then press your camera button and take a photo, the photo file is automatically added to your Dropbox folder and immediately synced to the cloud. I read about it here: http://lifehacker.com/5713518/send-android-photos-straight-to-dropbox

Update: I've gotten Pixelpipe to work with the Stock Camera App. Now every single picture I take with my Droid's camera is automatically uploaded to Picasa & Dropbox through Pixelpip. You can set it up to upload to any number of services. Here's how to get it set up: Go into Pixelpipe Go to Settings Turn on "Enable auto upload for camera", and ...

There is an app for that. PhotoSync (Sync to Picasa) automatically syncs local folder to Picasaweb, so you can select your camera folder. It's free and not so huge as G+ app. You can set your local folder and Picasa folder and sync them on eg. hourly basis.

Google+ Instant Upload offers a setting to allow uploads only when the charger is connected. Facebook's instant photo upload does not offer such an option. The Gallery is linked to your Google Account and thus to Picasaweb. However, there's no option within the Gallery app to restrict data transfer only when the charger is connected. Carbonite recently ...

The Photos app and Google+ app, while deeply connected, are different applications on your phone. The Photos app is designed to replace the old Gallery app by providing more editing and sharing options. Both Photos and Gallery show you pictures stored on your phone and stored on Google's servers under your G+ account. If you're using Photos you can ignore ...

An alternative to gary's method is to use "Set as". You can open the Gallery app, select a photo and then pick Menu > More > Set as > Contact Icon. You can then choose the contact to apply it to. The "Set as" option is sometimes available from other applications (I have a Media Gallery app on my xt720 that has it).

I believe this is now possible if you sign up to Google+. Install the Google+ app. Open it. Then under Menu->Settings there is an Instant Upload option with the following description: "Automatically upload new photos & videos to a private web albumn." There are also a bunch of settings to control it under Instant Upload Settings. When you activate ...

The default Android external SD file structure You should have a default structure used by Media Scanner to collect data present on your system, that gets stored on a database, allowing it to keep track of all the media content present on the device: Music/ - Media scanner classifies all media found here as user music. Podcasts/ - Media scanner ...

Reason is your client saves them at that time, and doesn't ask the "server" (your Android device) for the original time stamps. You could try using a SSH server on your Android device. DroidSSHd would be a good choice, for example. To copy your files then you need to start this SSH Server first on your phone, which usually tells you the IP and port used. ...

You can do this with your native camera app. But you have to have JB 4.2 (Not 4.1.x). Go to the camera. Tap on the camera icon and pick the item that looks like a small globe with a panorama stretched over it. That's the Photo Sphere mode. Take a picture as usual. Keep your camera steady. You should see a message to align your camera with the blue dot. ...

I'm using Android 2.1 and the latest official Facebook App. I go to the gallery and long-press on an image. In the menu, select SHARE and in the list of apps displayed choose FACEBOOK. I immediately am taken to a text field where I can type in a caption. by default the images are sent to the MOBILE UPLOADS folder/album, but you can create a new album and ...

There is no stock option to do this. Here's what I do, and it works pretty good, but isn't perfect. Download Reduce Photo Size from the Play store. When composing an email, click Add Attachment. A choice of locations will pop up. Choose Reduce Photo Size. Then choose either Select Image or Take a Photo. If you click Select Image, then choose Gallery. Once ...

Try SugarSync. It's a cloud backup service similar to Dropbox. They have a free 5 GB account as well as cheaper monthly plans than DB. Their Android app can be sycned to auto-upload all photos or sync folders on your SD. I've tried it an it works. I haven't fully tested it but one complaint that I have read is that it doesn't respect deletes on your ...

You can install the application Tasker and use it to always enable GPS when the camera is launched. Enabling GPS for apps that need it is one of the more common uses of Tasker, but it does so much more than that. Here's an article with information: http://lifehacker.com/5599116/how-to-turn-your-android-phone-into-a-fully+automated-superphone

This behaviour is not uncommon, sadly. I use SDrescan to fix it usually. Here are some other questions targeting the same underlying problem: The music player keeps displaying deleted songs. How do I remove them or refresh the library? Picture Gallery Slow & Won't Refresh on HTC G2 w Android 2.3 Gingerbread

There is a fairly new app called Perfectly Clear which allows you to select multiple images and apply corrections to all of them at once in batch. You could also set a preset and apply the enhancements the same way for all images. Fair warning, for the more advanced features they have in-app purchases.

I haven't tried it on Windows 7, but I expect Dropbox will work fine.

You say "Tasker doesn't seem a solution". If you already have Tasker installed you can do the following: Create a task with 6 actions that puts the names of the files in the camera folder into an array, then loops through the array moving files one by one depending on the filename extention. Note, in the IF statements, ~ means Matches, and !~ means Doesn't ...

Image Shrink Lite is just right for me; there's a paid version with more options.

Assuming you're speaking about the Short Message Service: For sending pictures without text, that's done via a special "signal channel", where exactly 160 bytes fit into a single package (hence the limit of 160 chars). But when you want to include more (more text, multi-media elements like pictures or video, or some other attachments), those "additional ...

The method really relies on what handset are you using. And keeping your contacts on the SIM card is one main reason for not being able to add photos to your contacts. Anyways, navigating to any contact of your contacts and editing it then clicking on the silhouet will do the trick.

GPS Essentials app will let you set waypoints of you location, so you could set a waypoint when you take a picture. You could then use software like GeoTag to tag your images on your computer when you get home.
