google one #cloud #photo storage rule changes #flickralt
Important: From 1 June 2021, photos and videos backed up in high quality will start to count towards your Google Account storage.
note raw .RW2 photos do not seem to be kept in the free photo storage area so you will need to convert them to .JPG then delete them
some useful googone and googplay urls
dont forget if you have gone over your 15G of ‘free’ goog drive storage and are using 100G of goog one storage you will be charged £1.50 / month
managed to convert my @googleuk #googone #googdrive cloud backup data #photos to #googphoto storage just in the nick of time before the next billing cycle #flickalt #flickrip
spent a whole week downloading 45G of ‘photos’ from my goog one / goog drive and then reuploading them as goog ‘unlimited’ photos i am now within my 15G free quota and wont have to pay another £1.50 for 100G next month
