"I have stored many pictures and videos in Google Drive but I want to upload them to Google Photos because I find Google Photos is better to store media files, but how can I directly move them to Google Photos?"

Yes, Google Photos is a good choice in terms of storing images, audios, videos and other media files because it not only offers free unlimited storage but also supports various photo formats like .webp, .bmp, .rm2, etc. If you also want to upload photos from Google Drives to Google Photos, you may also try to find a direct way to do it. Luckily, there is a free third-party tool---MultCloud can help you to achieve the demand.

      Does MultCloud only support Google Drive and Google Photos? Can MultCloud only help users upload to Google Photos from Google Drive? Absolutely No!

      Besides these two drives, MultCloud also supports OneDrive, Dropbox, MEGA, Flickr, etc. Except for transferring data between clouds, MultCloud has other two functions: "Cloud Explorer" and "Cloud Sync". "Cloud Explorer" allows you to manage multiple cloud drives, encrypt and share files, remote upload, etc. Moreover, you can directly sync or backup one cloud to the other clouds with "Cloud Sync" feature.

      So, as long as you have cloud drives that MultCloud supports, you can enjoy easy cloud management, transfer or sync. For example, you can link OneDrive accounts, sync multiple Google Drive accounts or transfer files between MEGA accounts.
