goog finally change how google drive and google photos interact

following a long campaign by myself (#flickralt) and others goog are finally changing how google drive and google photos interact

From 10 July 2019, new photos and videos from Drive won’t automatically show in Photos. Similarly, new photos and videos in Photos will not be added to the Photos folder in Drive. Photos and videos you delete in Drive will not be removed from Photos. Similarly, items you delete in Photos will not be removed from Drive. This change is designed to help prevent accidental deletion of items across products.

From 10 July 2019, Google Photos and Google Drive will no longer automatically sync. We’re making this change to simplify how things work between the two services. You can read more about the changes in our blog post

  • When you upload or delete photos in Google Drive or Google Photos, changes won’t be reflected in the other product.
  • On photos.google.com, you can use a new feature called ‘Upload from Drive’, which lets you manually choose photos and videos from Drive to copy into Photos
  • Once items have been copied into Photos, items are not connected between the two products.
  • If you copy Original quality items from Drive into Photos, they will count towards your storage in both products. Learn more.
  • These changes are for all devices and platforms, like iOS and Android. 
  • Your existing photos and videos are still in Google Photos and Google Drive. Google Photos backup will continue to work as before.

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

New Migration Plan was completed!

WARNING only just realised its almost pointless turning off #geotagging in goog #android photo app if you have goog #locationhistory turned on #firstworldproblem #spooky #toocleverbyhalf @smugmug #flickralt #flickrip

only just realised its almost pointless turning off #geotagging in goog android photo app if you have goog location history turned on and you are using google photo backup

thats because goog photos matches timestamps from your location history against your photos to auto geotag them ! and if you are google maps contributor it then asks you to add them to goog maps

and thats how i discovered goog photos auto geotagging

i think goog should add geofences like @smugug @flickr used to do
