I can’t seem to find a way to export my favorites album to a thumb drive to use on my new image viewer. I used search and have been looking through the videos but can’t find it.

Dot,

You’ll need to do it in 2 steps. 

  1. In Google Photos, open the favorites album, select all the photos, then click the 3-dot menu and choose Download and select a folder on your computer. This will create a .zip file in that folder
    If you don’t know how to select all, watch video 435
  2. Unzip the zip file (right-click Extract All) and choose the thumb drive as the destination.

Let me know if that works for you – or if you want me to make a video on it.

Got it, thanks. I was trying to make it harder than it was.

Do you have any more tricks on using google photos to add pictures to an email or iMessage.?

If you start with the photo, you can just tap the share icon and then choose to share with email or iMessage.

Check out episode 157 of our show for lots more.
