How to move photos from iPhoto to Google Drive?

Facebook downloads, Mobile downloads, Tabs, Bluetooth pics, WhatsApp, WeChat, Party clicks, Random clicks wOOh! Such a large number of photos and only computer storage to store everything won’t do for long.

Any solutions?—Pen Drives? Hard Disk? Would you carry your pendrive and hard disk everywhere with you and can they even be enough for the ever increasing clicks --- nAAh!

So what next?  Cloud Storage is your answer- easily accessible, portable, secure and easy to use!

Cloud services like Dropbox and Google drive allow you to store photos, videos and files online, which you can access anytime via the internet from any device (smartphone, laptop, and tab). And what more, you can use these services for free (up to a certain limit of course!).The Google drive allows 15GB of free storage space, which you can always increase by monthly subscription plan. If you are a MAC user and want to transfer photos form iPhoto to G drive, follow these steps to get started:

  1. Go to  and sign in to your Gmail account. If you don’t have an account, well you will need one to use Google’s services –so create a new account.
  2. To import the photos:
    a. Click on google drive icon on the menu bar
    b. Click on the gear icon and mark all options that come up in the menu.
    c. Select import tab and click on “Import Photos from iPhoto”

  3. On the pop up window ,click “Import Photos to Google Drive”
  4. On the next menu that comes up select whether you have to upload -
    a. A single photo
    b. Multiple photos
    c. An entire album

  5. All said and done the above steps will copy the selected pics form your Mac device to your Google drive.
Alternatively, you could also use the drag and drop feature to drag photos from iPhoto to a specific location on your Google drive.

You can always sync your iPhoto with Google drive which will automatically do all these tasks for you, and also delete the photos form Google drive if you delete from iPhoto. Sign in to your account and access your photos anytime and anywhere.

Dave testimonial PicBackMan was an answer to many a prayer. How can I get this MASSIVE collection of photos onto a service that cripples uploading? PicBackMan. I uploaded approximately 85,000 photos in less than a month. It would have taken me close to a year to get all of those photos where they needed to go. Nothing short of brilliant. - Dave
