Have you had an issue with managing your photos and videos? About five years ago, Google realized that a lot of people were having problems with this. Their solution was the development of Google Photos. Now it is your turn to master Google Photos.
As it happens, people found it frustrating to keep all their photos in one place, storage proved to be a nightmare, and searching for the photo you wanted proved to be less than ideal. Google management designed a workable solution that took care of these issues. Consequently, user management increased dramatically as users learned to master Google Photos.
Google Photos Redesigned
It’s a well-known premise that if something is good, it can be better. So, Google took matters into their hands and redesigned an even better solution. For the purpose of this blog post, we are going to call on Wikipedia to provide us with additional information. To start out with, let’s see what they say about the free version of Google Photos.
“In its free tier, Google Photos stores unlimited photos and videos up to 16 megapixels and 1080p resolution respectively (anything larger gets down-scaled to these sizes). This free tier will end on June 1, 2021. Photos and videos uploaded after that date get counted towards the 15 GB free quota shared across the user’s Google services.”
Photo Sharing and Storage Capabilities
To clarify, Wikipedia also points out that this robust service has a wide range of photo sharing and storage capabilities. Google Photos can be used with iOS and Android apps and can also be accessed on the Web. In addition, the service has four major benefits that you need to know about. So, let’s see what they are.
Benefits of Using Google Photos
1. It frees up space on your phone.
2. You can sync up your phone with your computer photos and videos.
3. Photo and video sharing is easy.
4. Your photos are organized automatically.
Master Google Photos
In the meantime, why not take a look at the video below that will detail how you can master the Google Photos app. The video itself is from Howfinity.com. The video itself is a little longer than we normally provide; however, it is a wonderful beginners’ tutorial.
First Things First
First thing on your list that you want to do is ensure that “Backup and Sync” is on. This is considered to be the most important setting for Photos. Why? It is because it makes sure that all your images are uploaded to your cloud account where you have access to searching, organizing, editing, and sharing.
Back up and syncing will appear as your first option. After selecting and moving the slider to the right, you are able to select which Google account you want to use if you have multiple ones.
Once you are on the settings page, you have the option to automatically backup images that are not captured via your camera – like screenshots.
