I just returned from the FMCA rally in Perry, GA.  I am trying to set up Google photos.  I have downloaded the app on my phone., but here is my question:  when I go to the App store on my computer, I see lots of Google apps but none that I recognize as Google photos.  Can I use Google photos on my Mac Air?  I like to edit on the computer because of the slightly bigger screen.  I take pictures on my phone, come home and download them onto my computer and then edit.  From there I like to send the photos off to have them printed for use in a scrapping album.  Not yet ready to go full-time online albums.

There is no app for using Google Photos on a computer (PC or Mac) It’s a website. Just go to and make sure you are signed in with the same Google account that you use on your phone. You should see all your photos there.

Let me know.
