Gmail has introduced a new feature that allows users to save photographs linked to emails straight to their Google Photos account. It effectively implies that users will no longer have to manually download photographs and then upload them to the Photos service.

There are two simple ways to save picture attachments from Gmail to Google Photos.

First, while previewing an attachment provided to you, click the three dots in the top right-hand corner. Click “Save to Photos” after selecting the option.

The alternative method is for people who would rather not preview the file but still save it to the cloud service. Instead, on the attachment, click the “Save to Photos” button next to the “Add to Drive” option.

It saves account owners the trouble of downloading an image from an email provider and then uploading it back online to back it up in Google Photos. In the meanwhile, the option will only be accessible for JPEG-formatted photos.

Google Photos unlimited storage Update

The new functionality for Gmail and Google Photos comes as the latter’s renowned unlimited storage deal ends on June 1. The tragic news was released on November 11, 2020. As a result, some of you may have forgotten or overlooked this message.

The good news is that the “Save to Google Photos” functionality will be available before the unlimited storage expires. If you come across a new choice before the majority of people, you will be the first to know about it. It’s not too late to make a backup of your email attachments.
