Transfer Google Photos to iCloud is a process that you can do on your own or use with a free service from iCloud.com. To use iCloud, you’ll need to sign up for an account and download a set of files.
How To Transfer Google Photos to iCloud
When the files are downloaded, you will be asked whether you want to use them locally or upload them to Google Drive. You should just go ahead and choose to upload the files. Now that you have your files, you can transfer them to iCloud.
You will be asked to choose which free service you’d like to use. For this article, we are going to use iCloud.com.
On iCloud.com, you will be given two choices: iCloud Photo Library and iCloud Drive. These options can be found under the “Sign in” tab at the top of the page. If you have already signed into an Apple ID and are logged in to iCloud, go to your profile and click on the drop down box next to “Sign in to iCloud”.
If you don’t have an Apple ID, you can get one here. There is a free 30-day trial to use Google Photos, so log in with your email address and you’ll be provided with a code. Copy that code and get it into iCloud.
Once that’s done, you should log in to Google Drive. Here, you will need to choose “sign in to Google” and enter your Google account information. That’s it!
After you have uploaded your photos, go to the “Sync Photos” tab at the top of the page. Click on the “Save Changes” button. Remember to choose the “Send Photos to iCloud” option on the dialog box.
If you want, you can change what files you have selected in iCloud. Go to your Google Drive, click on the gear icon at the top, and then click on the gear icon in the bottom right corner. There, you will see your Google Drive.
From your Google Drive, click on the drop down box beside the “Sign in to iCloud” option. This will bring up a dialog box. In this dialog box, you will choose your account and choose whether you want to upload the photos.
The next step is uploading the photos. When the upload is finished, you will see a progress bar. It will continue for about a minute, after which you will see the file on your computer.
You can share your photos through your own website or through email if you want. If you do, you can copy the URL link and upload it to your own website.
