Nowadays, people are paying more and more attention to data security that making cloud storage much more popular. Google Photos is an excellent photo sharing and storage service developed by Google. In general, as long as you set the storage settings to "High quality," you can get unlimited photo storage for photos up to 1080p resolution. But to pursue the original resolution and quality of photos and videos, you might choose "Original quality" to store the photos, and this will use storage quantity in the users' Google account. As more original photos are stored, users may prefer to recreate a new account to enjoy more free storage space.

It’s not uncommon now to have multiple Google accounts. Google can also easily manage multiple accounts. However, transferring photos between Google accounts is not easy. Thus, if anyone want to transfer photos from one Google account to another, is there a straightforward way to migrate photos quickly?

Note: Google Photos cannot transfer as a target cloud now. But if you want to migrate Google Photos images to other Clouds such as OneDrive, Dropbox, etc., you can select "Copy to" feature by right clicking the photos or use "Cloud Transfer" function to transfer photos easier.

All three methods have their own advantages, but I would suggest you choose the third one. The reason behind is easy to understand. Suppose you have a lot of photos to transfer, and if you choose the first method, downloading and uploading will waste a lot of time. If you use the second method, you will find that all the photos you share need to be renamed one by one. This is very troublesome. In summary, the third method does not require you to switch accounts and you can transfer photos from one Google account to another freely by copying and pasting.

MultCloud even supports transferring after power off, it will complete cloud-to-cloud data transmission for you offline. And more, scheduling cloud transfer is also available and it can help you to automatically transfer, sync or backup data between cloud drives at at a regular interval or for a special timing. In a word, MultCloud is an excellent multiple cloud storage manager.
