How to order photo albums and prints from Google Photos
Google Photos is known to be a great solution for cloud storage, but you may not know that it is also a photo printing service. We’ll show you how to use it to send picture books and prints to your door.
What do you want to know
There are various options for photo printing with Google Photos. You can order prints on local CVS, Walgreens, or Walmart. If you do not wish to do so, they may be delivered to you.
It is possible to order prints from the iPhone, iPad and Android app, however, the experience is much better if you use the Google Photos website in a desktop browser like Google Chrome. This is what we will use in this guide.
