But Google Photo touch the EXIF data of the photo?
The unlimited plan reduce every time the size of the photo in term of megabyte. (reduce quality)
But you chose unlimited plan or a the original quality?
I don't know if anyone can help me...
A couple of days ago, i decide to upgrade my iCloud plan to the 50GB to backup all my photos and videos on my iMac.
So it take around 25GB on iCloud but now, on my iPhone 6 Plus 16GB, iCloud Photo Library took 5.6GB of space. I set up my iPhone to optimise iPhone storage.
Is there a way to keep my photos and videos on iCloud without taking all of this space on my iPhone ???
Thanks and sorry for my english !!
iCloud Photo Library works fine for me under the 200GB plan. I have just over 35GB of full-res photos, not nearly enough for G-Photos to hold without paying extra for full-res support.
You're paying for iCloud storage, no difference having to pay for Google storage.
Indeed. However, in the case of iCloud, one can backup iOS devices under the iCloud umbrella of storage whereas Google can't.
IIRC, Apple's 200GB tier is a mere $1/mo higher than Google 100GB tier for 2x the storage.
I was delineating between paid vs. paid, not paid vs. free.
The only thing holding me back from switching from IPL to google photos is the fact that I can't manually tag photos in google photos. The auto tags do a great job but there are some pics I want to tag with my own labels and the fact that I can't do that is a deal breaker (for now).
I don't see any way to add a comment to a picture on the Google Photos web app. You need to use Photos on OSX to tag photos in IPL although I'm hoping the ability to do this come to iOS X.You can add comments to a photo which are indexed, so that could be used for tags as well. In IPL can that be done in iOS, or does it require the Mac app?

Open a photo in GP, then tap the 'i' button. You'll see a description field where you can enter anything you want, including tags.
Have tried this before and never thought it worked. Guess it takes a few minutes to index as its not instantaneous once I tag and search. But sure enough after a few minutes I can search by my tag. Thanks!
Does anybody (here) use both? iCloud has been serving me fine, but since hearing that Live Photos aren't captured I've been wanting to try Google Photos. Can I try it without interfering with iCloud?
