I have two google accounts and about 1GB uploaded photos on each. I see that on my first account photos use storage, but on another no (0% used of 15GB). All photos are max 1600 pixels width/height. What is going on ?

UPDATE

I saw that on first account i don't have a something like "Profile"(accessible on url https://profiles.google.com), I see only Join Google+ button. However on the second account i have a profile, but I have to notice that on both account Google+ is deactivated - when i go to https://plus.google.com i see page Join Google+ by creating your public profile. Strange, what is this profile on the second account where GPlus is off ?

  • Have the photo's been uploaded to the empty account or have they been shared by another Google account? – jezhug May 7 '14 at 11:56
  • What do You mean "shared by another account" ? How to check this ? The second account (with 0% usage) is newer. – marioosh May 7 '14 at 12:12
  • When you look at the photos on Drive, do you see the word "shared" next to them? – kyzen May 7 '14 at 17:54
  • I don't see photos on Google Drive at all. I see photos only on https://picasaweb.google.com/. Only one photo is public, all other are private. – marioosh May 8 '14 at 6:14

This Google Support article should help answer your question. If you upload photos through Auto backup as full size images (the default), they count towards your usage. It also appears that when you are manually uploading the same logic is used.

  • Yes, all photos are max 1600 (default in Picasa) – marioosh May 8 '14 at 6:48
