Announced in 2015 by Google, Google Photos arrived with the intention of replacing the old Picasa. The photo and video storage and sharing service is one of the most popular created by Google itself, with 1 billion downloads and an average of 4.5 out of 5 points for Android alone.
With support for iOS, Android, and the Web, Google Photos can be enjoyed by anyone looking for a quality, secure, and advanced storage service. That is why here, from Writing with Blog, we have prepared this incredible tutorial for those who are interested or want to try the solid service of Google.
*Remember that this tutorial is dedicated to the main and most interesting functions of Google Photos.
To use Google Photos it is mandatory to have a Google account, regardless of the version you are using, be it the application or the web.
Google Photos has the Automatic Backup function in its version for Android and IOS (app), with this function every time a new photo and video is created, a backup copy will be made in the cloud storage service Google.
To activate just go to settings, check the Backup and sync box and enjoy.
Being a Google service and storage service, Google Photos allows synchronization between it and its brother Gdrive. So you can synchronize your files between both platforms and make better use of your free storage space.
To enable app and web syncing, simply go to settings and select the checkbox for Gdrive.
As a sharing service, Google Photos allows you to send photos and videos to an email recipient on the web and, if used as a gallery, to email, Facebook, Instagram, Whatsapp, and other apps that accept built-in apps. media.
To send you just select the files you want to send and choose one of the available delivery options (web only saw email) and that’s it your files will be shared the way you requested.
What’s better than a high-quality file? Hmm… a high quality file that saves space I think is the best answer. Google Photos has the leading role in this theme by offering natively in its web version, a menu for you to choose between keeping the maximum resolution or having your files with great quality and UNLIMITED INCREDIBLE STORAGE if you choose the option to compress the files. All this for free.
To access this amazing functionality, simply go to settings and switch to the high quality (unlimited storage) option.
For those who work as a couple, or have an intimate partner (spouse), Google Photos has the option of adding a couple account so that both have access to the photos and videos stored.
To add a partner account simply access the side menu and choose Add partner account, where after entering the other person’s email you will have access to Google photos (Remember that this person has to be on your email list , otherwise it will not work properly)
Innovative feature for a storage service, it allows the user to create animations, videos and even movies of his life through photos (videos not OKðŸ˜‰ðŸ˜‰ðŸ˜‰ðŸ˜‰ðŸ˜‰ðŸ˜‰).
This feature is very popular because you basically don’t need a website or video editing app to create.
To take advantage of this feature, simply select the + symbol or create the web and app versions respectively and choose one of the options.
