How Can I Upload Pics From Google Photos To Facebook And Instagram
Google made a big revelation about their Photos app this year at their annual Google I/O conference. Although I was more interested in the specifics of Android M, my ears pricked up when Google revealed that their Photos app would now provide free, limitless, high-quality storage.
That’s correct… High-quality. It’s both free and limitless.
Why should you give a damn? Because, whether you’re an Android or an Apple user, Google is offering you the chance to save money and valuable storage space on your respective devices by collecting all of your photos into one very simple-to-use application.
Photos supports 16 MP picture resolution and 1080p video resolution, saving anything bigger in compressed, print-quality resolution.
That being said, you’re likely to have photos spread across the internet, such as Facebook, Instagram, Dropbox, and even iCloud, that you’ll want to import into the new Google Photos, so we’re here to teach you how.
How to Extract Photos from Various Sources
Each service or application has its own procedure. While some make it simple, others may not have a straightforward method of obtaining your material, even if it is your own. As a result, we’ll go through some of the more prominent sites that may be storing your pictures and videos right now.
Facebook Photos and Videos
Let’s start here since Facebook chronicles the majority of our life. To begin, you’ll need to gather all of your images. Don’t worry, we’re not going to save them all one by one.
Go to the Facebook website and choose “Download a copy of your Facebook data.”
Facebook will then send you a.zip file containing all of the photo or video material you’ve uploaded or shared on Facebook, except images in which you were tagged by others.
Instagram, unlike Facebook, does not provide a comparable feature. But don’t worry, it’s still easy to utilize the free online service Downgram.
Simply sign in with your Instagram credentials, then choose whether to download all of your pictures or specific shots. Also, keep in mind that clicking “Pick all” will not select every picture you’ve ever uploaded. To do so, scroll to the bottom of the page and click “Load more pictures” to expand the page. If you have a large number of images, you may need to repeat this process.
Although Dropbox does not allow you to download pictures or movies as readily as Facebook does, this procedure does not need the use of any third-party applications or services. All you have to do is pick your pictures, either all or individually, and then click “Share.” When the sharing choices appear, choose “Get Link,” which will immediately copy the link to your clipboard. You may even do this for whole folders, such as if they are all in a clean and tidy Photos folder.
Copy the generated URL and paste it into your browser, then click “Download” on the preview screen to begin downloading your zip file.
You do not need to do this if you use the Dropbox desktop client. For additional information, go down to the section on importing pictures into Google Photos.
Photos from Flickr
Even though Flickr isn’t as popular as it once was, you may have some old, sentimental pictures on there. Fortunately, Flickr is the most user-friendly in terms of picture downloads. Simply choose the photos you want and then click the “Download” button that appears below.
When it comes to downloading photos from iCloud, iOS users have it fairly simple. Simply sign in to iCloud.com and pick all of the photos you wish to save, then click “Download.” You may inspect certain images or just highlight all of them.
Unfortunately, for some strange reason, Apple does not give you with a handy zip file; instead, each individual picture is downloaded.
Photographs taken with your Android or iOS device
This part doesn’t need much explanation since all you need to do is download and install the app on your iPhone or Android smartphone. Along with any photos you’ve already uploaded to Photos, any photographs already on your phone will be synchronized with the app.
Thats how done. You must now have understood the process explained above.
