I'm moving away from a MacBook, and the Mac in general to Linux and am trying to create a workflow where Google Photos is my primary photo manager, but with originals kept on my computer, and using InSync...
- First, buy 1TB of storage from Google, and setup Google Photos to upload originals.
- Second, expose Google Photos in my Google Drive.
- Setup Shotwell to use ~/Google Drive/Google Photos as its library
- Let InSync do its thing.
I'll let Shotwell import off SDCards into this library, InSync will upload them. Photos from my iPhone will use the App to upload, and InSync will download them.
I realize I'm losing all my albums and what not from Apple Photos. Its either something like the above or buying a 12" MacBook to go with my Linux laptop just for photo management heh.
Anyone have a similar workflow that works for them?
