How to Migrate from Google Photos to Amazon Photos Unlimited


With Google Photos, you only get 15 GB of free storage. But as a member of Amazon Prime, you have access to unlimited photo storage, including full-resolution RAW image files. Here is how to change.

When you upload photos for the first time to Google Photos, you will face a decision. Do you choose to compress your beloved memories or upload them in full resolution?

  Google upload size limit to 15 GB or compressed

If you choose the Original option, Google only gives you 15 GB of space, and that fills up quickly

If you choose the high quality option, Google offers you unlimited free storage. The compensation? Compressed files

Compressing image files to consume less storage space does not necessarily mean lower image quality, but you can do so. In any case, most likely, the changes that Google Photos makes in your images are barely noticeable, even when you exploit and print them.

So, why not migrate your Google photos to another cloud service, such as Amazon Photos?

What's good about Amazon Photos?

As an Amazon Prime member, you have access to unlimited photo storage, so you will not be charged any additional fees for unlimited storage of uncompressed photos, included for RAW image files. Yes, you can load as many RAW image files and full resolution as you want. Good news for everyone who is dedicated to photography! It is one of the main benefits that you may not know.

The problem here is that Amazon Photos counts the videos and any other non-photo files for a free storage fee of 5 GB. However, if you choose to purchase additional storage, Amazon's plan at $ 11.99 per year per 100 GB is cheaper than Google's, which will cost you $ 19.99 per year for the same amount.

Like Google Photos, Amazon Photos has an iOS application and an Android application, so you can synchronize your images directly from your phone.

The service you choose depends largely on whether you need to store a large number of RAW files, or if you are simply reluctant to compress your photos. (There is also a case to back up your photos in more than one location.) If you decide that migrating your photos from Google Photos to Amazon Photos is the right option for you, here is how to do it. [19659014] First, download your photos from Google to your computer

Customizing the file format

Under Delivery Method, choose whether you want to receive a download link in your email or send it to another storage provider, such as Dropbox or OneDrive. You can also add the file to Google Drive, but keep in mind that this will count toward your storage quota. Therefore, if you are running out of storage space in your Google account, be sure to choose a different delivery method.

You can leave the Export Type as a Single File and the File Type as Zip .

Google allows you to choose between file sizes ranging from 1 GB to 50 GB. The larger the zip file, the longer it will take to download and extract. However, choosing a small size when you have thousands of images means that you will end up with a large number of zip files to download.
