The end result
Once your pictures are in the cloud, you can manage and edit them freely using any web browser. You can also upload from multiple devices as long as they are all signed in to your Google account – though, of course, if you have opted to use the maximum quality option this will count against your total storage allowance. If you go for the ‘high quality’ option instead, your storage is free and unlimited.
At the top-left corner of photos.google.com, clicking the list icon reveals a panel from which you can manage upload settings, recently deleted files, collections and shared links. Google Photos’ free and unlimited nature is great for all but the most exacting of people because it’s an incredible opportunity to back up all your photos to the cloud without paying Apple for more iCloud space.
