I am using Google Photos to backup my old photos. Using the mac desktop uploader. I have an external hard drive with folders in the following format:

|
+- 2005
  +---Wedding
  +---Trip to france
  +---Bachelor party
+- 2006
  +---Work travel to Japan
  +---etc
+etc..

I want google photos to automatically create the albums according to folder names. Is that possible? How?

Also I got a bunch of duplicates on google photos - is there any tool to clean those?

I've found this question: Create albums on Google Photos from folders of photos on local disk - but the answers talk about Picasa which has been retired so its no longer relevant or possible.

  • This question includes two questions, but look that you only searched for one of the them, the one about folders. On this sites there are also questions regarding the duplicates. I think that you should remove the question about duplicates and perhaps post a new question. – Rubén Oct 22 '16 at 21:39

Albums can't include other albums, no it's not possible to replicate a hierarchical folder structure as albums.

One alternative is to use Google Drive for PC/Mac as it will sync the folder structure.

Another alternative is to upload the folders to Google Drive through the http://drive.google.com by uploading your folders to My Drive or to a previously created folder.
