With the export and download of Google Takeout, you can easily move all downloaded media to a Google Photos account. Of course, as long as the recipient is Microsoft OneDrive or Flickr: with these services, it is possible to activate automatic synchronization.
The amount of images and videos a Google Photos account can store is appalling, especially if you’re using unlimited download – it’s not strange that you have dozens of GBs uploaded to the cloud. In general, this occupied space does not pose much of a problem, but you can consider move your backup elsewhere, like Microsoft cloud or Flickr. The classic process would involve manually downloading all of the content after previously downloading it, but there is a way to go through the process at once. And automatically: with Google Takeout synchronization.
Google Takeout allows download and synchronization
To activate the Google Photos backup on the mobile, simply go to the application options (it comes standard on most Android devices) and activate the backup, preferably unlimited (therefore without Drive space. ). In this way it is possible get a backup for one of the vital items on any smartphone: the gallery. And it doesn’t matter how many images and videos are stored because, if we let Google handle the compression, we won’t have to worry about space.
While Google Photos is really good as a spool backup, you might have considered change this cloud to OneDrive or Flickr. You may even want a second backup, for what might happen. So how do you move all the images and videos from Google Photos to Microsoft OneDrive or Flicker? Let’s see the process.
- You need an account in the service you want to use to register the new copy of your photos. In addition, you must take into account the space: OneDrive offers 5 GB free, Flickr up to 1000 photos (or combined with video).
- Go to this Google Takeout page, sign in, and create a new Google Photos export. Click on “Next step”.
- Select the destination between the two available “delivery methods”: OneDrive or Flickr.
- Click on ‘Link accounts and create an export‘and accept the permissions: first Takeout to access your Google account, then log into the platform you are synchronizing with.
- Once the data has been accepted, the synchronization will be done automatically and without you having to do anything: Google will notify you when it is finished.
The export process may take several days, it all depends on the size of the Google Photos backup
The export time is long since the download is done photo by photo, almost as if it had been downloaded manually, even though the process is fully automated. Google Photos will create the same album structure in the destination cloud; and will download all content found in Photos, with Exif data included.
