Step 6. Click "Download" button.
Step 7. Log in your second account through Google Photos official website.
Step 8. Click "Upload" button to upload these photos downloaded from your first account to your second account.

Step 3. Put the pointer on this Albums, click the three dots symbol(More options) and click "Share album" and typeyour second account to receive the invitation.

Notes:

  • Make sure that your first account isn't set to delete info when doing this operation.
  • Make sure that the upload quality for your second account is set to "Original".
