Thank you for the helpful clip. Clear and articulate explanations made it much easier for me to work out. Do you have a clip on removing or even not re-uploading duplicates of photos?

Backup and Sync doesn't work with macbook pro OS Mojave. It doesn't open to add account details after installing it. Do you know what could be the solution to resolve it?

I have photos on my Mac through an external hard drive from back in 2005. I want to move these to Google photos. Is there an easier way to add more than one "album" at a time? I still would like them to stay within that file as well.

I like the way you create easy to follow guides. Thanks for your hard work. These are the kinds of videos I can send to family members when they ask for tech support, but I am unable to visit or be in the room when they need to get something done.

When I select download app it comes up as "Install Backup and Sync from Google" not Google Photos Utility. On the menu bar it shows a cloud with an up arrow. Is this right. Also, I do not have the same menu option when I click on the cloud with the up arrow as the Google Photo icon. Help. I just want to create a back up of my photos on google photos to my Mac computer.
