What if you need to move photos from Google Photos to Dropbox?

Use Cloud File Transfer Service

It is very laborious to move photos to Dropbox in a manual way, especially when the transfer volume is large. I highly recommend that you use a free cloud file transfer service such as cBackupper, which allows you to transfer photos between different cloud drives, including Google Drive and Dropbox.

cBackupper has a simple interface and simple operation, and it is easy to use. Because it transfers the data in the cloud disk to another cloud disk, and does not use the computer as a transfer agent, it will not occupy the memory and network resources of the computer, and you do not have to install additional applications on the computer.
