Hi Chris,


I have created an album in Google photos and I want to create prints to put in a large photo frame.  I’m sure you have addressed how to get the pictures on my computer, but I cannot find it.  Please let me know where to look for the steps involved.

Thanks for your help

If you open the album using Google Photos and then click the 3-dot menu in the upper right, you should see “Download All” That will create a .zip file on your computer with all the photos in it. You can send the .zip file to your photo lab, or UNZip it to see the individual photos. Here’s an article with more info.

I used the first method by accident and created the zip folder.  Had a hard time finding the pictures.  Now that I was able to change the chrome setting to ask me where I want to download the files, I am much better shape and learned an important lesson on how to change Chrome settings.  Thanks a bunch for the information.
