Great app to backup and organize preservable quality photos even with the free storage option. This is the only place where I backup my photos taken with my phone. I also backup photos from my desktop taken using my DSLR. The desktop uploader needs improvement though. It often fails to backup some photos. Also I use Lightroom to edit my DSLR raw photos, but there is no ways to upload the photos with Lightroom edits, the unedited raw photos get uploaded and you have to either edit those again using the photos app or you have to export edited photos from Lightroom and then upload to Google photos. Lightroom integration would be great. I love the auto organization, album and gif generation features of the photos assistant. Overall like the app. Lightroom integration will make me love the app.
Anything made by Google is going to be top notch. Especially on a Nexus device if the rumors are true about full resolution backups at no charge (for Nexus devices) Update several devices later. Even better on Pixel 2. Google is amazing with image intelligence. It creates awesome collages, movies and stylized additions to your photo library. When I look at a group of pictures, Google always picks the same ones I would have. Google sees smiles and eye contact in photos.
Perfect if you use your phone to take pictures...so basically ANYONE with a smartphone. Doesn't matter if you have an iPhone (heaven forbid) or the master race Android phones it just works. This will automatically make animations and stylized photos from pictures you've taken and help you organize your pictures better than anything else. It's a no brainer if you have a phone that you take pictures with!!!
I appreciate that you can log in anywhere and never have to worry about losing photos and video's. Only way it would be better is if it only allowed one copy of each photo. Could you apply a version of facial recognition to recognize copies and prevent the app from backing up multiple copies? I run into the issue of having to delete copies after I put the photo onto a new device and the app backs up the photo as a new one. Looking forward to a response from Google or an update either way does not change how I feel about the app. I still give it 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
First of all need to be faster on starting, I don't need to see its welcome page. Also I need more tools to edit photos such as resizing photos and add texts. And at the end I need more viewing options in different kinds of view albums. If these things be added to this app then I don't need any other photo galleries or editors.
I am constantly breaking phones and losing pictures. Thanks to google photos I never loose anything. The assistant feature is awesome! And the panoramic with multiple pictures is very cool. Easy to use and free! You think it would be a cheap app with its freeness. Never had a bug and always runs perfect.
