Google Photos is one of the best services of Google, it is not only the most popular, but also the best that we can find in the market in comparison with other similar services such as Pictures of Apple.
Google has gifted its service of photo storage in the Cloud of cool features powered by artificial intelligence of which we have counted all of the details in Unocero. But one of the most interesting features of this service is its storage capacity unlimited, yes, unlimited, a feature that is available practically for any user to choose this setting.
So, many times it is not configured by default, but you have the option of activating this function, this way your photos won’t take up space in your Google Drive storage.
To get the unlimited storage of Google Pictures you have to do the following:
- Open the application of Google Photos
- We go to the option “Settings”.
- Click on “Backup and sync”.
- We look for the option “load Size” and select the option “High Quality”.
- Now we will have unlimited storage of our photographs in the Cloud.
What is the difference between High-Quality and Original Quality?
Google mentions that the photographs over 16 megapixel camera, and the videos with a resolution greater than 1080 is compressed to save space, but are maintained in high quality, that is to say, if your photography is a 32-megapixel camera, as you’ll see with a resolution of 16 megapixels. In the case of the videos larger than Full HD are also to be adjusted to 1080p.
This no doubt benefits the majority of users who use the photographs and videos for personal purposes, however, if you are a photographer, or you want to keep the original format for you to print your photos in banners very large, then you can choose the original quality, and all your content will be stored in the quality in which it was taken.
Users who have a Google Pixel have unlimited storage in original quality of life, while those which have a Pixel 2 have the same benefit until the 16 of January of 2021, after this date will be able to choose the option of “High Quality”, however, the photos that are already stored in original quality in your Cloud will not occupy space in your account of Google Drive ever again.
