Default Can’t Upload Photos into Gallery

Since switching to a new mobile phone, which automatically puts photos in Google Photos, I can no longer upload photos to the gallery. A message pop-up says the photos are too large. I thought the site software automatically resized too-large photos.

Actually, I can’t even find a way to upload to the Gallery directly from my Google photos app (on my iPad) so I “save image” onto my iPad and try to pull from that, since I’ve uploaded from my iPad gallery most of the time.

Do i need to somehow reduce size of photo on my phone?

Thanks.

I don't know anything about uploading from google photos, but we don't have a file size limit, so that message is probably coming from GP or your provider - i.e., a data warning. Try uploading them from your camera app instead of GP.

That worked, thank you! Why would it - I mean, why did that occur to you?

I had initially tried uploading from the GP app on my iPad, not from the GP website. Plus then tried from my iPad photos.

My head hurts.

But Lydia, I didn’t try uploading from the cloud - just from my device (iPad). No idea, huh? Maybe there’s a google photo expert here. I searched on line but nada so far.

Beth, I've never been able to find a way to add from Google Photos here either, even on a desktop. Short of what you did, effectively downloading the image to the PC first. And it's not for want of trying. I haven't been able to find a way to add them anywhere other than my blog.

That’s so weird, Sabrina. At least I’m not alone.

I was successful uploading from my phone today, as Lydia suggested, just not the iPad. That makes no sense since I’m accessing from app from the phone and iPad - not GP website.

I haven’t yet tried to download the photos to my PC.

Do you get the odd message saying the file is too large too? Photos and computers and devices and website put me in mind of lions and tigers and bears, oh my! Can. Not. Handle.

I couldn't remember, it's so long since I tried and gave up. So I tried just now, and the error message I got was invalid file type, even though I was using the add a URL option and copying it from the address bar.

I think I decided it was to do with Google's security. Adding a photo into Blogger is still keeping it in-house. Or maybe because it's a link to something in the cloud rather than a specific file location. I don't know....

My photos are on my device - even moved one to my iPad, and the message is the file is too large. So it’s a mystery!

Google Photos is cloud storage. If the photo isn't actually in your photo albums on your device, I doubt it will work. You have to have a local copy.

Thanks - it’s working now - don’t know why it wasn’t last month. (I do save locally.) Glitch happens.
