What a fantastic review. Although I confounded SmugMug, I am completely reliant on Google Photos. I bet I’m one of their most lucrative users with 30 TB of storage I pay for there.
I pay because I don’t want my photos resized and I like to store RAWs and 4K video.
I use it for the face and scene recognition. Once you have all your photos and videos there and you tell it who people are, it’s face recognition is astounding. It even picks up faces in reflections in windows. Both in videos and photos.
And the scene recognition! Half the time I type in something like bicycle to find an old photo I’m looking for.
