AR Tues. Meet-Up
- Craig Daniels -
Google Photos for Agents 1.19.21
WOW!!! No other way to start this post about the Google Photos presentation by @Craig Daniels.
From start to finish, the AR attendees* - about 44 members - displayed rapt attention to what was presented. In a measured tone, Craig taught what he shared in his Craig's Classroom series available on Facebook - @craigsclassroom.
Craig explained how Google Photos works. One MUST have a Google account but the account may have any email address from any company attached to that Google Photos account.
Storage is free until the end of May 2021. Whatever photos have been up-loaded by then are stored in the Cloud without charge. However, starting in June, different accounts will have different pricing. Video may be stored there also so when you begin to use the Goggle Photos system, remember - videos require a lot of storage space.
No way to tell everything here in one post. Check out the post from George Souto as he often includes links to every post written about each Tuesday's presentation. Plus - on Sunday night, George posts the meeting link and info about the next Tuesday speaker.
Thanks Debe Maxwell, CRS for your weekly organization skills.
(And congrats Debe, on your FEATURED POST tonight!)
A couple of comments about the amazing presentation...
Some points of interest: One may edit photos within the SAME program. One may use generic editing options or drill down and make more sophisticated changes. First of the categories expands to a comprehensive photo editor. If needed, even shadows can be removed without distorting any colors!
Another possible all inclusive option is to use a filter. Craig says he likes the "Auto" option. You may try different filters to see which is YOUR personal favorite.
How to access certain photos? Craig suggested using the Google Photos location service when taking pictures because it assists finding what is wanted down the road.
He also suggested that when one shoots many photos all at one time, an immediate (and quick) review of all those photos will assist in the future. He suggested using the "star" in that first overall review to identify which shots you prefer. Then -
Organization? Set up Google Photos Albums to keep categories distinct from each other. Makes for easier searches when a certain photo would be perfect in a post!
Looking forward to Part 3!
