First off, I am Android and PC owner (Samsung all), so I suppose in the minds of some folks I am already doing it the hard way. My phone is getting a bit slow and my laptop says there is not enough space to download the new upgrade, which I hear may be a mixed blessing. Still using Picassa for the laptop, and whatever the Galaxy 5 came with. I have a couple old external hard drives with lots of space, but they would require set up I guess while these photo thumb drives are advertised as fool proof and eliminates duplicates, but none of them delete the pics from the source device. Thinking about replacing Picassa with the Google Photos app but that entails cloud storage and potentially a fee that a Photo Stick would not. Anybody faced this question and what did you do about it?
