Google Photos is a unique photo management tool that has been greatly enhanced by the introduction of live albums. This allows Google to automatically detect people or pets in your images. Add them to albums and share those albums with your friends or family. You can then assign a name to a face and search for that person in the app to see every photo Google collects.
It even works for pets. As long as your pets look a little different, Google can tell the difference between Princess Caroline and Mr. Peanutbutter.
Recently, Google has raised its live album limit from 10,000 photos and videos to a total of 20,000, giving you much more space, especially if you work professionally on Google Photos.
If you take the time to organize your live albums, you will save a lot of manual labor in the long run. For example, if you're creating a family album, every photo in the same place, without you having to move any assets, ends up in a family Thanksgiving selfie to a stray photo of your sister. When you take a photo you can organize the photos by the subject of the photo. You can even share a link to an album with your parents or clients so they can view the contents of the folders.
