    Google photos collects all my photos and files them. My problem is that I need to transfer a batch of photos from google photos. I have found them in google photos but cant find the original source file. Is there any way that I can find these pictures from Google photos and transfer them to a auxiliary drive.

    I think they will be saved in Google piccies in their original file names so do a search on your computer for an example and they may well all be together somewhere.

    Edit: Click on the info button and it will show the file name.

    Don't really know what you are trying to do but if you meen google drive is it just a case of putting the ones you want into a seperate file , then giving whoever you want to access them permission.

    I think extra RAM could only get you into even more trouble than you already get yourself in BB. ;):)

    Ok a sensible question, If google had picked these pictures up from my phone or tablet automatically then I guess I am looking for a folder that doesn't exist. Is their a way that I can transfer the pics directly from google photos to my flash drive. o_O

    Have you tried searching on your PC against the file name in Google photos? Or do you think they are not on your PC?
