Google has announced that its image printing service via Google Photos will soon arrive in France. This service allowing you to receive a printout of photos, a canvas or even a book of your photos stored on the platform was until now reserved for the United States and a handful of countries.
The French shop is still under construction but allows you to have a first overview of the prices. Photo prints are available from 0.15 cents with formats ranging from 10 x 10 cm to 60 x 90 cm. Canvas prints will be sold from €28 for sizes ranging from 20 x 20 cm to 75 x 100 cm.
Google Photos allows you to print your photos in France
The Google Photos application is finally opening its image printing service in Canada and Europe, including France.
Photo printing services are legion. Here is one more today, at least with us: Google Photos. The application mainly allowing you to save in the cloud and to edit and share your photos from your smartphone and the web now adds a string to your bow. In any case in Canada and in 28 European countries, in addition to the United States, where this was already possible.
Three formats to print your photos
Users in France, but also in the UK, Spain, Germany, Italy and others, can order snapshots of their holidays or their chat directly from the application. Simple prints, but also photo books and canvas prints are offered, with the possibility of having them delivered to your home or to a store.
For photos, not including taxes and shipping costs, the starting price is 0.15 euros, while the sizes offered are as follows, in cm:
To print one or more photos from the application, simply hold down on it and select “Order photo” then “Photo prints”.
Delivery (temporarily) free
Photo books cost a minimum of 14.99 euros. Soft or hard covers are offered and Google automatically offers to create books based on the user’s albums.
It is possible to create and personalize these books from the website and the mobile app, while to celebrate the launch free delivery on photo book orders until July 24th. For any questions regarding this service, go to the dedicated help section.
Since the summer of 2021, Google Photos no longer allows unlimited storage of all your photos. It has since been necessary to subscribe to a paid subscription to keep your most precious photos safe from time on the company’s servers.
Google Photos allows you to print your photos on canvas or in an album
Google is slowly trying to diversify its activities and add appeal to its various services. The latest to be affected is Google Photos. The Alphabet subsidiary announced on Wednesday that it now allowed users of its cloud for Photos to have their photos developed, and that it was extending the service, already available in two countries, to Europe and Canada.
“Today most (if not all) of our photos are digital. That’s why Google Photos is adding new ways to print your photos, so you can easily celebrate and save life’s meaningful moments,” said Cody Bratt, Google Photos Product Manager.
Concretely, Google allows you to choose one or more photos from its Google Photos gallery and develop them in different forms. The first, the simplest, concerns the printing of the photos in print. 10 different sizes are available: 10×10, 10×15, 13×18, 20×20, 20×30, 30×45, 40×60, 50×50, 50×75, 60×90 cm. Count at least €0.15 per print, to which must be added the shipping costs and possible taxes.
Canvas prints and photo albums
Canvas prints are also on the menu to “turn your favorite memories into murals”. Two formats are available, namely 20×20 cm and 75×100 cm. They will be sold from 28 €.
Finally, the photo books are customizable in two formats, 23×23 cm with hard cover, and 18×18 cm with couple cover, from €14.99. Google is offering delivery here until July 24
Google expands photo and canvas printing service to Europe and Canada
Although there are third-party photo printing services that allow you to upload photos directly from online platforms such as Google, baking a printing service directly into Google Photos eliminates all friction. – in addition to preventing you from giving another company access to your Google account. On top of that, Google Photos has a built-in search feature that allows users to find photos by location, time period, people and pets, objects and themes – this is especially useful for those looking to print types of very specific photos from what are potentially thousands of snapshots dating back several years.
In Europe, individual photo prints start at €0.15 each (excluding postage and taxes), with the cost increasing gradually depending on the size. And in Canada, the price starts at CAD $0.39. Canvas prints, meanwhile, start at £23.99 in the UK for an 8.8-inch print, but it’s unclear how much they cost in the Eurozone – a direct conversion from GBP would be around €28 . Google has not confirmed how much the service will cost in Canada.
