Google Drive is cloud storage and file synchronization service by Google Inc. There are two ways to share Google Drive photos with others i.e. 'Share a  link to a file or a folder' and 'Send a file as an email attachment'. If you are using 'Email as attachment' to share photos with others, then you can send only one photo. It does not allow you to send multiple photos at a time. If you want to share multiple photos at once, then add the photos to a folder in Drive and then share the entire folder with the people you want to see the photos.

Following are the steps to Share Google Drive Photo with Others using 'Email as Attachment':

  1. Go to https://drive.google.com & sign in to your account. If you don't have an account, then create one.
  2. Once you have signed in to your account, you will see all your photo and videos albums.
  3. Open photo album and select the photo which you want to share.
  4. Check mark the photo and click "More" tab located at the top of the window.
  5. Click "Share" option.
  6. Select "Email as Attachment" option.

PicBackMan does exactly what it's supposed to. It's quick and efficient. It runs unobtrusively in the background and has done an excellent job of uploading more than 300GB of photos to 2 different services. After having lost a lot of personal memories to a hard drive crash, it's nice to know that my photos are safe in 2 different places.

LOVE this program! Works better than ANY other program out there that I have found to upload thousands of pictures WITH SUB-FOLDERS to SmugMug! Thank you so much for what you do! :) #happycustomer

I pointed PicBackMan at a directory structure, and next time I looked - all the photos had uploaded! Pretty cool. I use SmugMug and while I really like it, the process of creating directories in is pretty laborious when you need to make 80+ at a time. This was a breeze. Thank you!

PicBackMan was really easy to setup and has been running for 3 days now backing up all my locally saved photos to Flickr. My photos are really valuable to me so it's great to be able to have them easily backed up to a secure location.
