Google Photos, a free photo storage service, comes preinstalled on many Android phones. It has become so popular that even iPhone users, who already have iCloud Photos, want to use it. Fortunately, it’s also available on iOS, and it doesn’t discriminate in terms of features. What you get on Android is also available on the iPad and iPhone.
We’ll show you how to transfer your iPhone photos to Google Drive in this article.
Here’s how to go about it:
There are two options for moving your photos. The first option is to do it manually, in which case you can back them up from your Mac or consider manually uploading them.
If you’ve considered using Google Photos to back up your entire library, the first step is to download the app Backup and Sync.
Once you’ve downloaded the app and copied it to your Applications folder, you’ll need to follow the steps outlined below to get it set up:
- Launch the Backup and Sync application.
- Log in with your Google account.
- Then, select the iPhoto or Photos library from the drop-down menu.
- You must also configure the quality level for your images.
- Check the option Upload newly added photos and videos to Google Photos.
- Next/OK should be selected.
- That’s all!
If you don’t want to back up your entire library, you can manually select the images you want to move to Google Photos. To accomplish this, follow these steps:
- Launch iPhoto or Photos.
- Make a photos folder on your Mac.
- You must select the photos that you want to upload here. Simply drag and drop them into the appropriate folder.
- Now launch your browser and navigate to photos.google.com.
- Drag and drop the same folder into your browser’s window.
- That’s all!
