Facebook is still the biggest and most used social media platform, and because of that, a lot of people have plenty of photos and videos stored on their accounts. Most of us generally use Facebook for the personal reason rather than professional. We do care about small details while sharing on social media. We share our memories and photos and videos that we like with the people we love and care. But in certain point while browsing old photo we realizing our gallery is filled with lots of photos and feel insecure or we want to save those photos somewhere else where it is easily accessible or we feel more comfort. We don’t want to lose those memories at any cost.
It’s difficult to move our photos and videos from one social network to another. But now, Facebook and Google have made it possible and simple to transfer our Facebook photos and videos to Google Photos. This is the first fruit of an open-source project called the Data Transfer Project, to make it easier to trade photos and other data among the top companies like Apple, Google, Facebook, Microsoft, and Twitter platforms. You can transfer a copy of your photo and videos through any devices like mobile, laptop, desktop and any other device or operating system.
But one important point is that by default, any Google account comes with only 15GB of storage. So it means if your photos and videos exceed this limit you will not be able to transfer all our photos and videos to the google photos. But there is an option to upgrade your google account if you need more, you can get 100GB for $1.99 a month or $19.99 a year, 200GB for $2.99 a month or $29.99 a year, or 2TB for $9.99 a month or $99.99 a year.
Google Photos can store images with up to 16-megapixel resolution for now. It also comes with a built-in photo organizer and editor tools as well.
