I have photos stored in Dropbox. I want to move them to Google Photos. I don't have enough free space on my hard drive to download them all and then upload them all. Is there any way to move them directly from Dropbox to Google Photos?

  • Do you already have the photos in your local Dropbox folder?

  • No, I only have them in Dropbox's cloud storage, I don't have them locally.

  • Look for a solution that will let you sync data between Dropbox and Google Drive. I'm sure there's a question here asking about that sort of thing but I can't search for it right now. Once in Google Drive it's academic to "suck" the photos into Google Photos.

I solved it in no time with https://app.mover.io/ (freemium. I used it once to do a massive, one-time moving)

Just authorize both apps to be connected through the web interface and you're all set! You can see a progress report and in a few hours (I was moving 7-8GB) you'll have your files transferred.

  • How did you do this using Mover? I can only see local files in my dropbox account, and I don't see Google Photos as an alternative to move to..
