After 5 February 2019, free accounts that contain over 1,000 photos or videos will have content actively deleted—starting from oldest to newest date uploaded—to meet the new limit.

alternatives you could try are

  • imgur
  • shoebox

the dangers of linking your google drive #googdrive or google one #googone to your google photos #googphotos (#unlimited) #cloud #photo #backup @smugmug @flickr #flickralt #flickrip

the dangers of linking your google drive #googdrive or google one #googone to your google photos #googphotos #flickralt #flickrip

the main danger / reason is

  • if you delete a photo from Google Drive, it’ll also get deleted from Google Photos

(why would you want to delete a photo from unlimited ! storage ?)

if fact all the deletion rules are just too complicated (and you will end up using and needing to pay for google drive or google one space)

see (read ? & understand ?)

and then goto

to check your settings and check that the

  • Create a Google Photos folder

setting

  • Automatically put your Google Photos in a folder in My Drive

is

  • set to OFF (or NO)

a better way to copy link migrate your google drive photos to your #unlimited google photos photos #googphotos #hack #tip @flickr #flickralt #flickrip

a better way to copy link your google drive photos to your #unlimited (but at a lower res) google photos photos #googphotos #hack #tip @flickr #flickralt #flickrip

FIRST – DO NOT CLICK the google link my photos button

SECOND – instead

  • goto https://drive.google.com/drive/u/0/my-drive
  • choose the folders photos you want to migrate and zip and download them to your local PC
  • move the folders photos into your Pictures directory
  • download and run google Backup and Sync to copy photos from Pictures into google photos

you can then delete your photos from your google drive (and cancel your google one account if you want to save an extra £1.50 a month)

YES this technique will require more bandwidth but will FREE up all your google drive space (and any chargable google one cloud space) and give you FULL delete control over your photos

BTW and if you need extra bandwidth at home why not switch to

so exactly how much data will @smugmug be decimating on @flickr next month #smn #flickralt #flickrip

i can only speak personally but they for me will be decimating 12 years of my social media blogging (1000 wordpress posts) and photo documentation work

how i saved 14 years worth (42G) of @flickr photos from the clutches of @smugmug by using @cloudsfer together with @googleuk #googledrive #googleone #googlephotos and #googleshrink #cloud #photo #backup #flickralt #flickrip

as you may know @smugmug will be DELETING most (apart from your latest 1000) of your @flickr photos next month BUT if you act quickly you can save your flickr photo collection (however big) by using Cloudsfer to copy them into Google Drive

get a Cloudsfer account connect it to your flickr account and create a Cloudsfer photo migration plan to google drive

you can then optionally use google shrink to convert your google drive (and google one) photos into an (unlimited) google photos backup

Systems Used

Total cost £50 (only because I had to transfer more than 5G & 15G of data)

I have just saved over 32,000 photos (42G of data) from next months @smugmugs @flickr eradication program using less than 1% of my broadband bandwidth
