Google Photos is one of the most popular online photo sharing and storage services in the world thanks to its integration with other Google services. While users mainly use its app version, the service is also available on the web and now the latter has become even more convenient with a new “Saved” section.
In the latest web version update, Google Photos now shows a list of photo backup quality. Currently, Google Photos allows users to save images in “Original Quality” or “Storage Saver”, the latter of which compresses your image to save space.
Additionally, this new section tells users if the image is taking up space in your account storage. This is mainly due to the old settings that allowed users to save in “high quality”, which is no longer available.
As shared by 9to5Google, the new section joins other information available on the information pane of the web version of Google Photos which includes useful information such as the operating system from which the image is downloaded and by whom. the image has been shared. Other information available in the Info pane includes day/date, location, device, file data, and EXIF.
Previously, backup quality information was only available in the app version of Google Photos. This new update is really useful if you are viewing photos from a desktop browser and want to better manage your Google Photos storage, which itself uses your Google One global storage.
