    You can locate the DCIM folder using any file manager app.

    You can create a folder in Google drive and put all images onto it.

      Thanks. Once dcim folder is located , does the dcim folder is to be moved or copied option on selecting it?
      and thereafter , how to paste it in a custom Google drive folder? because the option for paste is not available on a google drive folder in Android on long pressing?

      I think the Google drive discourages ones to use mobile photos to be stored in Drive.It wants it to be stored in Google+ which can be set to private but is not useful if you don't use it.

      You cannot simply copy paste it.Although,I don't use Google drive app,you can assume that you can try to select the DCIM folder and tap on Menu or share button and then the option for Google drive might be there along with Bluetooth,Gmail,SMS etc. .

      For making this process automatic,try using apps mentioned above or you can use FolderSync or CloudVault

      Since,the above mentioned article says that it's a Dropbox feature,then you won't require dropsync app.

    You mean to say you want to sync your photos,videos or songs to cloud so that it's available to other devices too ?

    If yes,then try Dropbox or Google Drive.Add the DCIM folder to cloud service provider app which contains all of the images.

      The DCIM folder is where the gallery would fetch images.

      See the link below to know how to add and sync pictures in Dropbox via mobile -

      Gallery Drive Sync is also a good app to sync your photos to Google Drive.It's depended upon Google Drive.

      You might be interested to know that There might be Google+ photos app in your phone which if used automatically uploads all the photos to Google + in high resolution.
