Create, share with Google Photos


Visual elements add sparkle and personality to students’ work. Google Photos has made it easier than ever for users to create, curate and share images, gifs, and video clips from any connected device. Users can set up the app on their devices to automatically backup and sync photos and videos with an unlimited amount of storage.

Looking for the right image to represent an idea? The search capabilities within the app are outstanding. No need to tag pictures with keywords. Google automatically does the work.

Album sharing is another great feature. Users can collaborate on albums and their name will appear on the file preview. Shared albums in the classroom promotes student media creation and citation.

As your Google Photo library grows, its seamless integration with G Suite makes using your own images easier than ever.
