I’m strictly a casual photo person, mostly stuff that interests me, and family pics. I have digitalized all our old photos and that was a year long process… I have my photos in iCloud Photos, and have them backed up to Google Photos. I am never really sure which application I should devote my energy to organizing the photos. Apple photos are obviously more private, but Google photos have a lot to offer. I find their search is better, their facial recognition seems better, and you can see the photo info on the phone or iPad, where you can’t do that with iCloud photos.
I’d be interested in hearing the thoughts of others who use these photo applications! Thanks!
