Now that Google has announced a limit on its free Photos storage, I want to reduce the shots in my account.
I have three problems.
I used Google Backup and Sync app on my iMac to back up my photos (I also have them backed up on a local exterior hard drive). The app stopped working, and I’ve tried to delete it but it doesn’t want to go.
I set my account to automatically back up my iPhone photos—big mistake since I take a lot of shots and the account is loaded with useless stuff. How can I shut this feature off?
I want select and delete large batches of useless files on my Photos account to stay under their limit. I know how to do this on my iMac using the shift key and scrolling, but I’d like to do it on my new iPad Pro. But I can’t figure out how to select more than one at a time on the iPad. The little select circle in the upper left corner of the image that you use on other devices doesn’t appear to allow you to click in it. The instructions I find online just say to select the files you want to delete.
Google is promising a new Photos account managing app for next summer, some time after a lot of us have hit our free limit.
