    So I have a question about my ipad photos. So, since I have problems with anxiety and some ocd problems, I end up sometimes having issues of being really worried about something bening missing or gone, so I always have to screenshot tons of things, As a result, I now have nearly 110000 pictures, and is using up almost all of my nearly-full 128 GB Ipad. I have only 0.3 GB left until it’s completetly full, and I don’t know what to do.

    What I’m mainly wondering is if theres anyway for me to store my photos somewhere where it doesn’t use any ipad storage? I know theres an option to use the Icloud, but theres a problem with that; my Icloud is the same as my parents’s Icloud, and I don’t think ths Icloud has enough storage for my photo either. If I put it on Icloud, I’m worried it’ll be stuck on my parents devices, making them able to see all the screenshots and kow what I do on my ipad, and will make itm impossible for them to find their own pictures, and screw over their own storages and the icloud storage. I need something that has enough storage to keep my screenshots and does not use icloud or would damage my ipad in any way. I’m not sure if such a thing exists, but it’d be really helpful.

    If this is not possible, then what other options do I have? through searching up, I found that there are ipads with higher amount of storage, but I always get really worried and stressed about getting new ipads because i’m worried it will mess up the iclouds even more than they already are or that some stuff wouldn’t back up right and disappear on the new ipad. I believe my ipad also isn’t fully backed up either, and I’m not sure if I could back it up without it using up more storage than I have. Alternatively, I could delete all the photos as ling as theres a way to delete them all at once. I’d rather not have to do this because I sometimes use the screenshots to find old stuff, plus I’d get anxiety about losing it all, espicially when it might theortically possible to save them by getting an ipad with higher storage. But if I have no other options, I will do it. But I’m also wondering if there’s any other options?

    They do sell flash drives that can connect to the lightning port of an iPad you could put them on.

    Google Photos doesn't limit how many photos you can back up online.

    Unless you have a new iPad Pro the lightning port is the port you plug in the cable to charge your iPad.

    Would I be able to put all my picture into google photos? Or would it require me to do each picture seperetly?

    Also, would it require me to download an app?

    It’s also worth mentioning that your parents likely have a different Apple ID than yourself- at least they should. If you don’t share your iCloud images with them, they won’t see them. Double-check this with Apple if you like - but ultimately if they don’t use the same ID you should be fine. Storage space is affordable. I store all my images on iCloud, and that’s way more than my iPad has capacity.

    The connector that you use to charge your iPad.
