    Google Photos and Albums backup with Google Photos Library API

    I used this not too long ago:

    It works extremely well, and you can re-run it any time to sync new files locally too.

    I used it like that for a few months before I finally installed syncthing on my phone and stopped using Google Photos altogether.

    Now what I do is take photos on my phone, have them sync to a NAS. And on the NAS I used a modified version of this to build up a YYYY/MM folder organisation and move files older than 30 days from the syncthing folder into my archive. My archive is then in my Plex so it's still accessible to me.

    In essence: 1) Take photo (implicit sync to NAS), 2) wait 30 days, 3) archive photo into long term directory naming convention, whilst making available to Plex and deleting the version from my phone (by deleting the syncthing version it will delete the one on the phone after 30 days too).

    Mobile apps for ente Photos

    I've been long considering switching my Google Photos library fully over to ente [0], of course alongside my existing monthly backups to local HDDs and an annual backup to a cloud server via borgbackup.

    With every passing week, every Google fuck up like this and with ente's great pace of development, I draw myself nearer and nearer to the precipice of full switchover. I will soon be having my last Google Takeout.
