Backing Up Photos with Google Photos

If you are anything like me you have a phone full of photos. I use to be so nervous that something would happen to my phone and I'd lose all my photos. I can't understand the cloud and since I do a lot in Google it just made sense to back my pictures up in Google photos. This summer in a workshop I learned how to do it. Today a co-workers was having issue with viewing her iphone pictures on her computer. Once I showed her how to back up all her phone pictures to Google photos it made making her Christmas photo album so much easier.

Here is a quick how to.

1. Open up the Google Photos app.

2. Click on settings.

3. Tap Back up & sync

4.  Swipe the dot to turn it blue (on).

There you have it! It is super simple and saves me so much time. I hope this gives you some peace of mind. Do you have a photo back up system that works for you?

  1. I'm intrigued!! I've never done this before so thanks for showing us how. It looks really easy. I upload my pictures to my computer, but it would be nice to have them in another spot. Thank you!
