Upload photos from Google Photos

Being able to upload pictures directly from Google Drive is nice but being able to upload pictures from Google Photos would be even better, so you don't have to save Google Photos to the Drive before uploading them

    This is a big deal as photos sync from your mobile device to photos, not Drive.

    This would be such a great integration. I don't use stock images. I take most of my pictures on my phone, which automatically backs up to Google Photos. It's a pain moving photos from folder to folder in drive + later.

    Yes please! Google photos is my may holding place for photos coming from all my devices. Please add this feature. To upload directly from google photos to later.com would make life sooo much easier.

    With the disconnect of Drive and Photos, this is essential. Please consider!

    This is now more important than ever seeing as Google have stopped automatically uploading photos to Drive and now only keep them in the Photos section.

    All my photos back up to google but not to drive - this would be the most useful tool if it was a feature
