How to Add Photos to Google Photos

So, what do you do with all those photos and videos you snap with your phone? Well, let me tell you, Google Photos is the way to go if you want to keep them safe and secure.

And guess what? It’s completely free if you have a Google Account, giving you unlimited space to build an archive of your precious memories. But before you dive in, let me walk you through how it all works.

To get started, you can upload your photos using either the Google Photos app on your phone or your trusty PC. Of course, the process will be slightly different depending on which option you choose.

Automatically Adding Photos

If you’re like me and tend to forget things or accidentally delete them later, enabling the Backup feature is your best bet to keep all your photos in Google Photos. It’s a super convenient way to save every single photo and video from your phone, camera, or even your storage card.

Before we get into the nitty-gritty of setting this up, let’s quickly go over the requirements you’ll need to keep in mind:

  1. A stable internet connection is a must.
  2. The size of your photos can’t exceed 200 MB.
  3. Your videos can’t exceed 10 GB in size.
  4. The resolution of your files can’t be smaller than 256×256 pixels.

And one more thing, you need to double-check that the file formats you’re using are compatible with Google Photos. To make things easier, you can find a handy list of acceptable file types on the Google Photos Help page.

Getting Synced Up

So, you’ve got a handle on the size and format your files should be for Google Photos. Now it’s time to set up that automatic upload. Let me walk you through how to do this on your computer.

There are two ways you can go about it: installing the Backup and Sync app for Google Photos, or doing it straight from your browser. Let’s start with option one:

  1. First things first, install the “Backup and Sync” app on your computer.
  2. Next, sign in to your Google Account.
  3. Select the photos and folders you want to back up and choose the upload size.
  4. Hit that “Start” button.

If you prefer to upload photos from your browser to Google Photos, here’s the lowdown:

  1. Head over to the Google Photos page on your browser.
  2. In the upper right corner, click on “Upload > Computer”.
  3. Select the photos you want to upload.
  4. Click “Open”.

Alternatively, you can simply drag the photos from your computer to the album.

If you’re using the Google Photos mobile app on Android or iOS, the sync setup will go something like this:

  1. Open the Google Photos app and sign in to your Google account.
  2. Tap the Menu icon and then go to “Settings”.
  3. Finally, select “Back up & sync”.

How to Make an Album in Google Photos

Google Photos is a great tool for keeping your photos organized. It’s especially helpful if you like to group your photos into different albums that are carefully curated.

Before you start uploading photos from your device, you can go ahead and create an album with any name you want.

If you travel a lot, you might want to create albums named after the places you’ve visited. Here’s how you can create a new album in Google Photos:

  1. First, sign in to your Google Account and open Google Photos.
  2. Select and hold a photo or photos, then click on the “+” button.
  3. Choose “Album” and give it a name.
  4. Click on “Done”.

Once you’ve created an album or multiple albums, you can always go back and add more photos and videos to them. If you have several albums in your Google Photos storage, you’ll be able to easily browse through them and add pictures to the specific album you want. There are no limits to how many albums you can create.

Getting the Most Out of Google Photos

Unlike Google Drive, where you have limited storage space, Google Photos provides you with unlimited space. However, keep in mind that you can only upload photos and videos, not other types of files like documents.

But don’t let that discourage you. Google Photos is a remarkable tool for keeping your images and videos organized, especially if you love capturing moments.

You have the option to choose automatic backup, which saves you time but requires a stable internet connection. Alternatively, you can manually upload photos one by one.
