How to save images directly to Google Photos from Chrome browser

We need a number of photos and images for working on our projects, creating presentations and for a number of other purposes. In most cases, we download the photos from the internet and use them in our projects, or do the same on our mobile phones and transfer it to the computer so that we can start working on them. But, at times we need to save a photo for a long time so that we can use the same for different purposes later on. Saving the photo to the cloud is the best solution in such cases, as there are lesser chances that the important photos and documents will be deleted from the cloud.

But downloading the photos, and again saving them to the cloud can involve multiple steps and can somehow affect your productivity. But there is a simple way you can easily save the images and photos that you come across on the internet directly to Google photos. As we all know, Google photos offer a free backup solution for all your photos and images.thus, if you get the option to simply save the photos and images to Google photos with a single click you cannot only boost your productivity but can back up unlimited photos and images without paying for it. As long as you are using Google Chrome, you just need a Google Chrome addon to do this.

So without any further delay, let’s get started with how you can save the photos and images directly to Google photos with just a single click on Google Chrome browser for PC.
