Now, we need to find and tap the Photos application icon.
The icon is a shape made up of different colors with "Photos" written underneath. In this example, it is located on the first page. It can be in a different position. It can be in the "Media" folder or somewhere else. We find ours and tap it. This will allow us to enter the application. Now, the application will ask us to set it up.
We need to tap the "GET STARTED" box, which is displayed at the bottom.
Now, the application will say "Back up your photos and videos" and "Sync this device with your Google Photos library to search, edit, delete and share from any device". We'll have two options to select.
The second option is "Use mobile data to back up" with "When WiFi is unavailable".
Currently, it is turned off. That means that we may be using extra money, the mobile Internet may cost you more, or it may be just not viable for you to do this. That is why this option is turned off by default.
"Upload size for photos and videos". "High-quality (free unlimited storage)" or "Original (15 GB storage left)" with "Full resolution that counts against your quota". As we can see, this allows us to save high-quality photos at a reduced file size, or we can use full resolution. Full resolution takes a lot more space. That's why there are only 15 gigabytes of storage. If we select the first option, we will get free unlimited storage. This depends on how much space we use or intend to use, and how important it is for us to have the original quality. We are happy with the first option in this example, so we are going to select it.
We tap the word "CONTINUE" in the bottom right-hand corner of the screen to continue.
We will have an option on the screen that will give us some advice to see more photos by pinching to zoom. The application will display how to interact with it by pinching with our fingers to zoom in and out.
Now, we tap the arrow located in the dark blue circle.
"Select more quickly" and "Press and hold, then swipe" will be displayed. It allows us to select multiple photos at the same time. We tap, hold, and then swipe. It will allow us to select multiple photos.
"Find faster" and "All photos automatically organized" will be displayed. Photos are organized by date, by places, and by things. So, we can organize them into specific categories related to time, date, and subject.
