Click the book cover at right to get your free chapter one, and see how to buy the book.
Since Google Photos is updated all the time, and we're always learning more, this book will also be updated. You can find the date of your book on the last page before the index in the paragraph with heading "LearnGooglePhotos.com - Book Updates."

Errors/Changelog

If you're looking for a changelog for the Google Photos software, I pieced together this version history from my iPhone App store.

This is where we will keep track of changes that are being made to the book in order to keep it up to date. When the changes are substantial enough, we will reprint the book. You can find the date of your book on the last page before the index, in the paragraph headed LearnGooglePhotos.com.
