Google has recently implemented a new feature to Gmail that allows you to save attachments straight to Google Photos. This means that the next time you receive an image attachment in an email, you can instantly save it to Photos without having to download it.
When previewing the attachment, look for the new option in the top right corner menu, and as usual, you may just upload the image to disc without previewing it. The ‘save to Photos’ option is also a useful addition that will soon be available to all Gmail users worldwide.
However, if you currently have the choice, you only have a few days left to keep as many photographs as you like before Google stops offering free unlimited storage and switches to the standard 15 GB disc storage. Unless you have a Pixel smartphone, you may expand the storage space by spending some more money.
