How to Reliably Sync to Google Photos
How to enable Google Photos
This is a two step process. Firstly, in Google Drive, click on Google Photos in the left hand panel:
Secondly, Click on “OK” when asked to create the the Google Photos folder.
That’s it! It might take a while for Google to sync your existing Google Plus photos to Google Drive/Photos.
Any photos you upload to your local Google Photos folder will automatically be copied up onto Google’s photo’s service. All your Google Photos online can be synced back to your hard drive as a safe backup.
You can create folders in your Google Photo’s folder and these will be turned into Albums by Google Photos online.
Syncdocs can sync external drives, so you can mount your DSLR SD or CF memory card and have the images uploaded to Google Photos.
Syncdocs can reliably upload your photo collection. It is more reliable than using a web browser to upload as it supports resume, and works faster with bigger photos and video files.
Note that photos bigger than 16 MPixels and large video files count towards your drive quota, which is 15GB for free users. To check the contribution of Google Drive/GMail/Google Photos to your space usage, click on the quota usage menu in Syncdocs.
