Default best way to sync pics from Phone *to* cloud ("from" not as important)

I want to sync photos from my phone to .. well I don't really care.. just somewhere in the cloud.. web accessible, and serving as a backup copy.

Could be Picassa, Google+, as I said.. I don't care much...

I don't neccessarily want to sync back down form the cloud.. ie. keeping data usage in mind (or if I could sync only via WiFi)

Under settings I see

"Sync Google Photos"... no idea where those end up?
Also "Sync Picassa Web Albums"
and "Instant Sync"

I've enabled these.. and see nothing thru my Google web interface ?!?!

any guidance?

thanks!

"Sync Google Photos"... >> end up in Google+

Also "Sync Picassa Web Albums" >> end up in PicasaWeb

Both of them will be combined in the future, so doesn't make a huge difference which you choose...

You can also use e.g. DropBox, which has an instant upload feature of photos and videos as well.
Just install DropBox from the Play Store and register - it will ask to active the feature...

I use Dropbox to sync all the photos that I take on the Sensation. The free version gives enough storage space for my needs.
