Google Photos is ending its free unlimited storage service. Starting June 1, 2021, the service will charge users a fee once they exceed the 15GB limit. This does not apply to high quality photos and videos previously saved. However, photos uploaded after June 1, 2021 count towards 15 GB of storage quotas. For users considering moving their images from Google Photos to other services, the process is fairly straightforward and there are several options available to export your photos to. Some of the choices include Amazon Photos, Apple’s iCloud Drive, Dropbox, Flicker, and OneDrive. Exporting the data from Google Photos is fairly straightforward, although transferring all of the files can take a while.
