How to transfer photos from iPhone to Android | Digital Trends Spanish

Sharing photos is something we all do, regardless of whether our phone is Apple or Android. However, it can be quite a challenge when it comes to transferring photos from iPhone to Android. Although it is complex, it is not impossible. We show you how it’s done in iOS 14.6.

Reconcile formats between platforms

While JPEG and H.264 are universal photo and video formats, since iOS 1 Apple uses HEIF (high-efficiency image file format) and HEVC (high-efficiency video encoding), two much more compressed formats. Some Android devices may have trouble translating them, but we can avoid it. How? Changing formats on iPhone to record JPEG still images and H.264 video instead of newer formats.

To change the format go on your iPhone to Settings> Camera> Formats and choose More compatible. The resulting images will be of the same quality and will take up more space on your device, but will be compatible with all Android devices. Finally go to Settings> Photos> Transfer to Mac or PC and select Automatic to make sure photos and videos are sent using JPEG and H.264 formats.

Sharing options

Now that the formats between devices are supported, let’s decide how to share them. Among the possible options we have email, text message or through messaging applications such as WhatsApp, Google Drive, Dropbox, Twitter or any other application that allows you to add attachments or upload and download files and folders or access links.

  1. Go to the Mail app, open a new message, and tap Insert photo or video.
  2. You can also do it with the Photos icon in Messages, but keep in mind that images sent by text messages from iOS phones to Android will be highly compressed and may lower their resolution.
  3. You can also send an iCloud link by mail or message.
  4. Finally, you can share images directly from the Photos application through the sharing menu by choosing the application of your choice.

Google bridges the gap between platforms

Google Photos is free if you have a Google account and is available as a separate application on the App Store. Not only can you sync your Apple photo collection to its server, but you can also share your photos and photo albums through the Google Photos app, any messaging app, or a cloud link. You can choose to store your photos in high quality (16 MP), more than enough for most users. Of course, remember that Google limits the total storage space to 15 GB for all its applications, including photos.

Google Photos lets you share albums with groups of people, who can also add content to a common photo collection. You can share directly with anyone who has a Google account by creating a share link.

When you share photos or albums, the link will be sent to the people you share it with, although anyone who has the shared link can see the album or photos. If you share an album that automatically adds photos, anyone with the album link can see the added photos in real time.

If you have an Android phone or tablet, you can easily sync your Google Photos account so that photos taken on the iPhone can be automatically viewed on your Android device through the online application. Google Photos comes pre-installed on most Android devices so if you set the app to sync, all the images you upload to Google Photos will automatically appear. To download the images you want, press the button with the three vertical dots located in the upper right corner and click on Download.

Share a photo

Google Photos allows you to send photo messages to your Google contacts and it is very easy to do so without leaving the application. Recipients must have a Google account, and if they don’t, Google Photos will be able to send the images via text message or email.

To do it in Ios 14.6 the steps are the following:

  • Launch the Google Photos app.
  • Scroll down to choose a photo to share.
  • Choose the icon Share.
  • Select the contact you want to send the photo to.
  • Write a short message.
  • Press the button Send.

Share an album through a link

You can also share a photo album by creating a link and inviting people to view and / or contribute to it.

  • Launch the Google Photos application by long pressing its icon to access the option Create shared album.
  • Select the photos you want to add and press Nextin the upper right for the application to automatically create a photo album.
  • Name the album and press Clever.
  • Add a short message if you want and press Send.
  • Choose from your contacts who to invite to view or collaborate with the album.
  • Tap the icon Share on and choose Create link.
  • You can share that link via email, text message, or any other compatible application.

Group participants will be able to contribute images or videos to the album using the Google Photos application on any platform where they have the service installed.
