Tanya from Ventura, California uses Amazon Photos to back up all the pictures she takes on her phone. Amazon Photos lets you get 5 GB of storage for full-resolution photos and videos. You can get unlimited photo storage with Prime.
There’s just one problem: It’s hard to get all of your pictures off of Amazon en masse. She wants to move away from Amazon, but she feels like her pictures are being held hostage.
When I looked it up, I found that Tanya was correct. If you are using a web browser, you cannot currently select an entire album to download from Amazon Photos. At least, you can’t do it easily.
Luckily, I have a tech genius who works at the Komando HQ. I asked TeamKomando:John to help out and he shared the steps to success:
Make sure you have Amazon photos installed, you can tap or click here to download the software to your Mac or PC.
Hit the Start button > Amazon Photos > Backup.
Under Your Photo Stats, you’ll see an image icon that tells you how many photos you backed up. Click it.
Select Download > Download Folder > All > Download too…
In the new pop-up, select your download destination by selecting Select Folder. This starts downloading your library—no matter how large it is.
Since Tanya’s photo collection is so huge, it may take a while for her 10,000 pictures to download on to her computer. However, this is a surefire way to transfer your pictures off of Amazon Photos.
