Google Photos – How do I back up my camera photo?
There are two ways to start your Google Photos backup – from desktop applications or android and IOS apps. To back up photos automatically from any SD card or desktop folder, you need to download ‘Backup & Sync‘ (Windows and Mac).
This replaces the two old desktop applications (Backup and Drive Google Photos). Backup & Sync allows photos to clone from your photos and videos to be stored safely in the cloud.
Is this an exact copy or a compressed version? This is a big decision when you set up ‘Backup & Sync’. You get two options: ‘High quality’ or ‘Original’. Google will store an unlimited number of 16-megapixel and 1080p photos in ‘High quality’ for free, but this is not entirely the whole story; they are also compressed to reduce space.
In our tests, Google compression is impressive, shrinking file size without losing quality. If you mainly see photos on the screen, or mostly back up smartphone shots, you should not have a problem with the ‘High quality’ option.
However, if you are a photographer who needs a non-compressed RAW backup, or you are a fan of printing your footage, then you might want to be fat for ‘Original’. Because Google ‘only’ gives you 15GB of storage for free, this may cost you, but at £ 8 per month for 1TB of storage (or £ 79 per year), Google Photos is better than people choices like Dropbox.
There is one big caveat: This app doesn’t support any type of RAW file, so it’s a good idea to check the support page to see if your camera version is there before you spit out the 20TB plan.
Decided to add Google Photos?
After you download ‘Backup and Sync’ and log in to your Google account, it’s only a case of selecting the folder you want to back up automatically.
