Google Photos Cloud Storage Features Review
Google Photos is an online photo service that allows you to store and share your digital camera photos with family and friends. It is a great solution for sharing pictures with family, but the growth of Google Photos has also led to some changes to its photo storage and sharing features. We’ve noted many changes to how Google Photos can be used on Google+. Since these changes have affected Photo Stream, one of our most popular features, we’ve taken the time to compare the new Google Photos Cloud Storage Features with our older Google Photos options.
One of the biggest changes in Google Photos is the way it now shares photos across multiple networks. Previously, you could only upload your photo to Google Photos on one website. With the latest update, you can upload to Google Photos, Zagat, Shutterstock and Flickr right from your desktop or laptop. This gives you more options for sharing your photos.
The other big change is that you no longer need a Google account to upload photos to Google Photos. Google Photos is a completely free service. This means that anyone can create an account and upload photos to Google Photos for free. Anyone can also edit and share photos on Google Photos. This feature hasn’t been available when Google Photos was first released, so it’s nice to see it back in the new product.
Google Photos is also introducing two new services that will further increase its cloud storage service. Google Apps will let you access your Google Drive files using your Gmail email address. Google+ businesses will now be able to upload photos directly from their Google+ pages. These are the two biggest announcements yet for Google Photos and it shows that the company is serious about providing cloud storage service that meets both needs.
But is Google Photos really worth spending money on? I have to admit that I’m a little nervous about spending money on a service like this, but Google Photos seems to have done a great job creating a fun interface for sharing photos. It does offer quite a few tools to help you optimize your photos for display, and it includes some basic editing features like renaming, enhancing, or fixing colors and contrast. These functions are very basic, and if you want to take full advantage of the functionality of Google Photos there really isn’t anything else to do.
However, the big claim to fame with Google Photos is the new photo storage service. You can upload any type of picture and store it on your own server (with your own set of license). Google Photos cloud storage service will allow you to access your photos from virtually anywhere, as long as you have internet connection and the latest version of Chrome browser. If you have an iPhone or any other mobile device, this is about the best thing you can do to take advantage of Google’s photo service.
The first time I used Google Photos for this feature, I was a little confused as to how to use it. It is extremely easy to use, and after I got the hang of it I was able to quickly and easily upload my photos to the service. My one complaint is that Google Photos does not offer photo editing tools, which makes optimizing and fixing photos a little harder than it could be. Also, the zoom is not very effective if you are taking a photo of an object that is very close to you, and it didn’t take long for me to get used to this feature. You can get creative with the photo editing features, but again, it can become a little tricky, especially when trying to fix blemishes on your photos.
Overall, I am very happy with Google Photos. I have already taken advantage of the photo editing and optimizing tools offered by this service, and it has really helped me make nice photo presentations, slide shows, and even work as a video producer. It does cost me a bit more each month to have the service, but considering the value I get from having access to this wonderful service, I think it is worth it. I even purchased a Google Photos Premium subscription which gives me even greater value for my money. I would recommend this service to anyone who needs to store their photos online and want to avoid having to spend money on other services.
