Hate it when you show someone a photo and they start scrolling past that image and through your gallery? Well, if you don’t have to carry those photos with you, now you don’t have to.
Win a trip to Amsterdam!

As noted by a Google product engineer this morning, Google Photos for Android users can look for the “Free Up Space” button to bulk delete backed-up pics. You’ll be prompted twice to make sure you meant to delete in-device copies, and Photos will try to automatically offer this option when it detects that your phone is running out of storage room.
Tomorrow, Google will also roll out a small update to the Web version of Photos that’ll let users download backed-up photos in Original or High qualities. This means if you’ve chosen to back up photos in the original, full-resolution quality, you can opt to recover those files as a downgraded compressed version.
