Easy way to manage iPhone photos and iCloud photo backups?

I'm getting frequent alerts on my iPhone that my free 5gb of iCloud storage is full. Most of this is from years of photos on my phone--in fact, that's pretty much the only thing on my phone I would care about having backed up. I also think most/all of the images on my phone are already backed up to my computer in Lightroom. Is there a convenient/automatic way to handle what photos stay on my phone and what photos are backed up to iCloud? [more inside]

Best practices in organizing a digital, image-based inspiration file

As an aspiring artist, I've recently acquired a habit of saving to Dropbox every image I find particularly inspiring or useful as an artistic reference. This is fun and motivating, except I'm realizing that my Finder-based 'folder > subfolder' organizational structure is doing a poor job of keeping up with my needs. I'm looking for software recommendations (Mac OS X) or general tips re: sorting a frequently-accessed image collection that will eventually number into the thousands. The catch: the system needs to sync with an iPhone/iPad. [more inside]

How do I get my photos onto somebody else's iphone?

I'd like photos that I take on my iPhone to automatically turn up on my mom's iPhone. I'd prefer to do this without setting up my iCloud account on her phone, since we don't need to share contacts, calendars, etc. Ideally the solution would be completely transparent for her, and require little or no ongoing effort from me once it's set up. Any tips on the best way to do this?

What's the best online service for an all iOS household to store and share photos?

A friend of mine is moving to an all-iOS home infrastructure: - iPhones - iPad - airprint printer - Apple TV No computer. Their died and they're not buying a new one. They don't have much or any local music or video content, but do have a ton of photos (like over 16GB by some large amount). What's the best way that you can think of, without them having to buy a computer, of storing photos and sharing them amongst all of their devices and with other people. Interested in hearing about both free and paid services. Also interested in camera app recommendations, other app recommendations, and service recommendations. This question gives some interesting camera app recommendations and I'll send that to him as well. Thank you.

iPhoto Photo Sync

My wife has an iPhone 3G that we'd been syncing with an old eeepc. The eeepc bit the dust, so the iPhone has the only copy of lots of photos. How do we sync the photos (not from the camera roll; the ones from the photo library) to a different computer? (Windows, please)

Upload iPhone Photos while Multitasking?

iPhone App: I want to upload EVERY photo I take, to Flickr, immediately after being taken. This means that I want the app to upload in the background, REGARDLESS of what I'm doing. I may hit the home button and go on to another app, or I may just throw the phone in my pocket. I want the new spiffy multitasking to work as promised and upload my photos. I want to use this as my main camera app. I use a 3GS, so multitasking does work fine. [more inside]
