    If I delete photos in the original account, will they also delete photos in the account I shared the photos to with this method? I’m wanting to free up some space on my original account because I can’t receive emails anymore to my gmail.

    • Karrar Haider says:

      Make sure that you follow the step 8 and 9 to save the shared photos in the secondary account’s library. If you will do this, then deleting or even unlinking the primary account won’t affect the photos saved in the secondary account.

    The option to add partner account is not available for me. What can I do? I am using Gsuites for my personal domain. Any help would be appreciated.

    The whole “add partner” thing seems to have disappeared

      Hey Paul, thanks for pointing it out. The option has been moved to the “Settings” of Google Photos. I have updated the post with the updated information. Thanks again! :)

    Did like this but now the photos in my new account don´t seem to take any space. How come? I have unlinked the accounts and want to delete the old account. Is it safe to do so?

    I already share my a partner. Can I have two partners to share with?

  8. Fiona says:

    Sorry, my last comment wasn’t very clear

    I already share my photos with my partner. Am I able to have two partners to share my photos with, so I can do as you suggest?

    I want to move all my photos over to another my other account and as we are unable to merge accounts, this has been the best option I have seen.

    Hi Karrar,
    Step 8 option seems to be no longer available where I can see the photos from my partner with my own photos. Is there a way of doing that still available that I’m unable to find on my computer?

    Hi this has helped me I hope! Once you have selected to ‘Save’ the original accounts photos to the new account, should they all appear? I’ve followed the steps but it only seems to show up to a certain date, the majority of photos haven’t transferred as yet despite selecting ‘all’

  12. wawa says:

    can i delete the photos from my primary account as soon as i shared the photos to the other account or do i have to wait for it to be fully tranfered ?
