Google Photos for web now shows if your images are taking up space

Google made a small but very useful change to photos on the web that was discovered by 9to5Google. In the notification area for each photo there is a new category called “Saved” according to the current day/date, location, device, EXIF ​​and image size. It shows whether the file was saved in “Original Quality” or “Memory Saver” and how much space it is taking up, if any.

This is especially informative for users of Google’s Free Tiers following the storage policy changes introduced on June 1, 2021, which ended unlimited free photo storage. They allow you to manage your photos in more detail, when you need to free up space, or simply check the quality at a glance. In addition, there is the current “Manage storage” function, which offers an overview and management of your cloud storage.

Oddly enough, similar to the “Uploaded by” and “Shared by” information, the “Backed up” information is not available in the Android or iOS apps – only on the web. The feature has started to hit some accounts but has yet to see widespread adoption.
