Pretty easy. What you do is use the Shared Library feature.
- Log in to husband’s account and open Google Photos, note what photos you see there
- Click on 3-line menu and choose Sharing, then Add partner sharing
- The partner account = your account’s email address
- Shared library settings: New account can access ALL photos,
- You’re done with his account
In your account:
- Now log in to your account, Open Google Photos, you should see a notification that you’ve been invited to share husband’s photos
- Accept the invitation
- Shared library settings: Save to my library: ALL photos
It may take a little bit of time, but that’s all you have to do. Watch in the your account to see that the old photos arrive.
