Bonus Tip: How to Transfer Google Photos to Another Account

Google Photos implements a new policy that ends the unlimited photo storage space from June 1, 2021. That’s to say, people have to pay for larger storage once they exceed the 15GB of free storage space. To continue to use Google Photos for free, many will create a new account to enjoy more free storage space.

Meanwhile, for graduates from school who used to use their college (.EDU) account to log in to Google Photos, they prefer to have a new Google Photos account as well. In these kinds of situations, replacing Google Photos accounts is very common. If you happen to need a way to migrate Google Photos to another account, you can read further.
