Google Photos has gained a new button that lets you import images stored in a Google Drive account. Available on the web version of the service, the feature was created after Google changed the integration between the two services. Recently, users have been warned that images stored in Drive will no longer appear in Photos. Thus, upload between services is the available alternative for organizing all images in the cloud only on the storage offered by Google Photos.
