- Google Takeout | how to download all data from your google account
To download all your photos from Google Photos at once, do the following:
- Enter the Takeout page;
- Sign in with your user account, the same one you use with Google Photos;
- Select the "Uncheck All" option in blue;
- Scroll down until you find "Google Photos";
- By checking this option, select "All included photo albums";
- Click "Ok" in the popup that will open;
- Scroll down to the bottom and click "Next Step";
- Now select how you want to download your files and click "Create File".
Once the file is available for download you will receive a link in your email (the same one you use in Google Photos) to download it. Remember that you will have to wait a few minutes (or even hours, depending on the volume of images) before Google sends the transfer link.
You can export your data as many times as you like through Takeout. Once downloaded, you can also permanently remove them from Google Photos and save them to another location, such as an external memory card or hard drive.
