google photos tab

We recently added a new photo importing option: Google Photos! You’ll now see this option when you’re adding photos to your projects or stash, or (for designers and yarnies) on the photos tab of pattern and yarn pages.

Just click on the Google Photos option on your photos tab and, after hitting the select photos button, allow Ravelry to access your pictures:

You can then select the photos you want to use. Google Photos has great search features, so you can search for things like sweater, yarn, crochet, hat, etc., and narrow down the photos to find what you want quickly.

Select the photos you want to import, and we’ll upload and resize them for you just as we would with any other photo uploading or importing option.

If you use an Android device, photos you take with that device can sync automatically with Google photos, so this can make things much easier for you to upload pics you took on your Android when you are at your computer.

If you have any questions about this feature, please let us know in the For the Love of Ravelry thread!
