I know this question has been asked before, but under a slightly different context. There have been a few technology changes since then, so I'm hoping there is now an answer to this question.
Basically, I have my photo collection organized into folders and sub folders like this:
and so on.
If you use the Google Photos uploader, it removes all of the folders, kills the event name from the folder, and just uploads all photos into a giant lump.
Recently, Google added a 'Google Photos' folder to Google Drive. It would be ideal if I could just link the folders from my photo collection to this folder. The idea is to preserve my dates and event names and have Google Photos create albums for each gallery.
When I try this, the photos never make it to Google Photos. The only time the photos appear in google photos is if I remove all of the folders and just dump the pictures into the root folder.
Is there any way around this to achieve what I am trying to do?
