Upcoming changes to Google Photos and Google Drive

Google Photos to Drive

 

What’s happening?

From 10 July 2019, Google Photos and Google Drive will no longer automatically sync. These changes will let you easily choose where photos and videos are stored across products.

 

  • When you upload or delete photos in Google Drive or Google Photos, changes won’t be reflected in the other service.
  • On photos.google.com, you will be able to copy your photos and videos from Google Drive to Google Photos.
  • Items copied between Google Drive and Google Photos in original quality will count towards your storage.
  • Your existing photos and videos are still in Google Photos and Google Drive.

 

What do you need to do?

If you sync photos and videos from Google Drive in Google Photos

Check if you sync photos and videos from Google Drive in Google Photos

  1. On your computer, go to photos.google.com/settings.

  2. Check if you turned on Google Drive.

 

If it’s turned on, you are syncing photos and videos from My Drive in Google Drive to your Google Photos library. Items will remain synced as long as you don’t turn off the setting.

Note: You may also see a notification in Google Photos that tells you if you are syncing photos and videos.

What you need to know

If you have this turned on, Drive and Photos will no longer sync with each other when these changes take effect.

  • After these changes come into effect, any changes that you make in Drive will only apply to Drive. Any changes that you make in Photos will only apply to Photos.

    • For example, if you upload a photo to Google Drive, it will not upload to Google Photos unless you upload it separately.

  • Any files and folders that you have in Drive will remain.

Not one of the greatest photographers here (AFAIK B)), but no plan either to give google a worldwide license to use, host, store, reproduce, modify, create derivative works (such as those resulting from translations, adaptations or other changes made so that the content works better with google services), communicate, publish, publicly perform, publicly display and distribute the uploaded content whatever it is.
