Google Photos is a photo and video storage service offered by Google. It allows users to store and organize their photos and videos in the cloud, and access them from any device with an internet connection. Google Photos offers unlimited free storage for compressed photos and videos, while supporting backup of original quality images and videos, which will consume the user's Google Drive storage quota. Users can share albums with others, and Google Photos allows sharing with others by creating album sharing links or directly sharing photos to social media, etc.

Can you transfer Google Photos to another account? Of course, below I can introduce several common methods and analyze their comparison.

Option One: The most straightforward - Upload & download.

If you have been using Google Photos for many years, you should know how to move an image or video from one Google Photos to another. Download from the source and then upload to the target album.If you only have a few photos or videos in your album, you can do it this way. But what if you have thousands of photos? Would you still do it? I think this option is not suitable for you. It will drive you crazy.

  1. Firstly, you need to download media from the source Google Photos to your computer. Download from Google Photos
  2. Next, log in to the target Google Photos and click 'Add photo'. Add Photos to Google Photos
  3. Finally, wait a few minutes for your media to appear in your album.

Option Two: The fastest - Share albums.

Sharing an album from one Google Photos to another is just a few clicks away, and all albums can be transferred to another Google Photos account easily. If there are a large number of albums, you cannot share albums in bulk here, you have to click on "Share Album" one by one. If there are a large number of albums, you cannot share the albums in bulk, and you have to click "Share Album" one by one. If the owner cancels or deletes the album, the corresponding album in your another account will also be deleted.

  1. Firstly, select "More Option" for an album in the source, and then click "Share Album". Share album from Google Photos
  2. Then, enter the email of the inviter people (another Google Photos account). Enter inviter people
  3. Finally, access another Google Photos account and click on 'Show In Albums'. Show In Albums
  4. In the album list, you will find this new album.

Option Three: The best - Data transfer tools

Using data transfer tools, it's similar to Option One. RiceDrive automatically uploads and downloads data, importing media files from one Google Photos account to another. After the transfer is complete, the media files in the two accounts will not affect each other.

  1. Connect your two Google Photos accounts to RiceDrive. Connect Google Photos to RiceDrive
  2. Create sync tasks for these two Google Photos accounts. Click "Sync Cloud" and "New Sync". create task to transfer google photos to another account
  3. Finally, you can check the progress of the transmission task and the completion report. The progress of transferring from Google Photos to Google Photos
