Yesterday I posted about the end of a hair-pulling session in which I tried in vain for a long time to figure out how to get my photos to stop uploading from iPhotos to the Google Drive storage system.
Here is the solution. I wish I could say it was my brilliant detective work that found the key. It wasn’t.
Whenever I have an irresistible desire to ask my husband whether or not to publish a post, it usually means the post probably shouldn’t be published, so I rarely ask for input. Such was the case here.
Soon after I pushed the fateful button he read the post and then asked in the kindest tone to have a look at my laptop.
Within minutes he pointed out an upload icon in the bar along the top of the screen.
Click it, here’s what appears:
Click on the three vertical dots on the top right of the menu, and:
Uncheck the box at the bottom of the screen that says upload newly added photos and videos to Google Photos.
Now I’m going outside to enjoy a perfect fall day.
Thank you Mate. You’re the bee’s knees.
