Hello, sent photo albums to three people, who also have Google accounts.  One has asked whether she can save the whole album to her Google Library without having to select each photo individually to do so. There are 150 photos in the album, so it would save time if there is a way to do this.  Any tricks?

Thank you!

Yes! When you open an album that has been shared with you, you should see the cloud with the down arrow appearing in the upper right corner. Click that and all those pictures that were shared with you are now copied to your library.

Very simple, very easy … and kinda weird. There is no indication that these pictures were taken by someone else. It’s as if you took them all – they are in your library just like any other photos in your library.

Thanks!  Siblings were thrilled that they

don’t have to save each photo individually. A great timesaver!
