People keep years worth of photos on their Google Drives and MacBooks, so they can take trips
down memory lane and relive life’s special moments.
As the years have gone by you might have run out of space on your MacBook for all the photos
you have taken. You might use the cloud to store your photos for safekeeping, to avoid losing all of
your memories if your MacBook crashed or you accidentally wiped them from your hard drive.
The dedicated Google Photos app for MacBook makes it easy to sync all of the photos stored on
your Mac, making sure you always have a backup of photos you can access anytime and across
multiple devices. It also means you can store photos from non Apple devices in the same place in
the cloud - great for if you want to combine collections from different family members or friends
who use Samsung, Huawei or other Android devices.
Google Photos is a great way to easily browse your photo albums without trawling through
endless file names and folders. But with so many photos stored together and a whole lot of
memories it can be difficult to decide which ones you’d like to put into a photo book. What story
do you want to tell? What memories do you want to focus on?
Here are some ideas of different Google photo books you could create with Google Photos (you
could even keep these in mind when taking photos with your iPhone or deciding how to edit and
categorize your photos on any photo storage app):
Wedding photo book: one of the greatest days, full of memories and people who made it
special. You can include photos of the wedding cake, venue, friends and family, the first dance and
all the moments that made it a magical day to remember.
Family photo book: fill the pages of your photo book with all the beautiful moments you’ve spent
together as a family, including birthdays, hikes, vacations, family baking time, moments that made
