Google launches Google Photos to store, organize and share photos and videos easily. It has a "Back up & Sync" feature which allows you to automatically upload all photos and videos taken with your device to Google Drive. If you want to get photos into Google Photos, then you just need to visit https://photos.google.com/ website on your computer and sign in with your Google account. To upload photos to Google Photos, drag and drop your photos from computer to your browser window. Google Photos offers you unlimited storage for free, with a few gotchas.
It offers you to choose 2 upload sizes i.e. "High Quality" and "Original" size. If you choose "High Quality", then you will be able to upload an unlimited amount of photos to Google Photos. High quality photos can be up to 16 megapixels in size and video resolution to 1080p. It saves high quality photos and videos while reducing size. If you choose "Original" size, then you can upload larger photos without having them shrinked. It uses your Google account's 15 GB of free storage space to backup your photos. It stores your photos and videos exactly as you captured them. Google recommends that if you take photos with DSLR camera, then upload those photos with original upload size. If you backup photos to Google Drive, then by default they will appear in Google Photos.
