Google Photos supports photo uploads up to 16 megapixels and videos up to 1080p, and higher-resolution content will be downsized from the original. In his keynote presentation, Anil Sabharwal, Google’s director of Photos, says the app “stores compressed versions at near identical visual quality.” This means Photos won’t support uncompressed RAW files, which is something Google+ does, but it will handle JPEG images from phones and basic point and shoots. If you want to store the original versions of your photos, including RAW, it will hit your Google account’s 15GB of free storage instead.
